Our story

We are an award-winning charity, delivering gymnastics to over 1500 children and young people in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.

Also known as RGA, we were formed in 1992 as the successor to Staveley Gymnastics Association which was founded in 1960. 

We provide a community-based gymnastics programme in pursuit of excellence. The gymnasts train in the purpose-built headquarters at Kew and at five satellite centres throughout the Richmond borough.

Our mission

Our club was founded on the motto we still continue to live by today:
'to every child the opportunity'

We offer every child that joins RGA the opportunity to be the best of their ability whatever level that may be.

Our aim is to ensure every member of RGA fulfills their own gymnastic potential in an energetic, creative and supportive environment.

A gymnast’s potential is individual, and our highly qualified staff ensure the gymnasts development and progress is individual too.

Our opportunities

Not only do we encourage and retain teenagers in sport, but we also offer opportunities for young people to be involved in the sport not only as a gymnast, but as a Coach or Judge.

We support their development along their chosen pathway.

supporting young people since 1960

Not only does our work promote physical development and a love of sports, but also helps support skills in leadership, teamwork, initiative and more.
