Individual member, Jake Kelly, is going from strength to strength in his tumbling career. This is a Facebook post made by his mother.


Incredibly proud of our Jake, for being picked to represent England  in the Loule Cup, Portugal  in October and to top it last night his coach told him he’d made the GBR Team  for the World Age Championships in Tokyo in December , to say he was over the moon is an understatement, he shouted the house down.  Great achievement for Jake and the coaching team at Wakefield Gymnastics, so glad all the hard work and dedication has paid off.
