Our Hartford Sets floor & vault


competition was created to enable our


squad gymnasts to show everyone what


they had been achieving in the gym.



Michelle Oakes & Sally Bailey created


routines which would be challenging,


developmental but most of all




These routines have now been


performed by hundreds of gymnasts from


all over the Cheshire & Merseyside area,


and are also being used by a number of


other clubs at their competitions too.


We have added new sets and tweaked


the odd skill here and there to maintain


the development of the gymnasts.



The main objective for all gymnasts


entering the competition is to have fun,


which is why we have the club motto


"who grins, wins". 



Here are some of the stories from the



Hartford Sets December 2018

 What a competition!

227 gymnasts sparkled during their

performances and showed their families how

amazing they all were!

It was another busy Hartford Sets competition

with 2 visiting clubs and over 130 of our

gymnasts competing on the Floor & Vault.

With Christmas music playing and their

families watching, our gymnasts all had their

smiley faces on and wowed the audience with

their hard work. For this, all of our gymnasts

received a participation medal and 73

gymnasts also g...ained places on the medal


In total, Hartford achieved 39 Bronze, 29

Silver & 31 Gold medals.

 A huge THANK YOU as always to those people

who make it all happen…. Our Hartford Gym


Well done to everyone involved in the event,

you really do make us proud.

Hartford Sets July 2018

Our smaller competition due to the time of

year, but we still had 2 visiting clubs and over

160 gymnasts competing in our summer floor

& vault competition.

We were very proud of how hard our

gymnasts had worked to achieve personal

goals and apparatus medals and this certainly

showed in their performances.

Our gymnasts won a total of 36 Gold medals,

37 Silver medals & 28 Bronze medals, with

everyone taking home a "Smiley Face

Participation Medal" for trying their best.

Well done to everyone who took part and

a big THANK YOU to our Coaching Team,

everything running smoothly and ensured

that everyone had a great time.

Hartford sets December 2017

Wow, what a day!!

It was a first for our club, 420 entries with 3

visiting clubs and what a great event it was.

With Christmas music and smiling faces, we

experienced one of the best competitions we

have held.

The green army of coaches had been making

sure that children were ready for their comp

and the gymnasts families were ready to see

what their children had been working so very

hard on.

We saw some of our youngest gymnasts

compete for the very... first time and smiled

all the way through. Even with butterflies in

their tummies, they shone and performed

their best to receive their "smiley face"

participation medals. Some of them even went

on to win apparatus medals too.

For some of our gymnasts, this was a

competition to better their score from last

time, and without exception, all of our

gymnasts improved on their previous

performances and we are very proud of them


As a club we achieved 33 gold, 44 silver & 30

bronze medals.

Our green dream team made sure that the

event ran smoothly throughout a very long

day, with jobs ranging from coaching, making

refreshments, fundraising, selling leotards,

judging, door duties and running. The green

army also did a fab job of transporting

equipment, setting up and planning before the

day itself.

We are extremely lucky to have an amazing

gym family who are there to support us

whenever we need them. We couldn't have

made this event run so well without them and

we want to thank them and everyone who

took part in it for making it such an enjoyable

or discipline of gymnastics our children work

at, they do it with such enthusiasm and try

their best always.

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who made

this event so successful.

having a very special friend of Charlie & Michelle to

Beth Tweddle, made a lot of gymnasts very happy,

having their picture taken with her, talking to her

and some had Beth helping them with their routines

and vaults. She even helped Michelle with the

computer scoring!!


All of our gymnasts had worked really hard to get

their routines ready to show their families and

friends and we were extremely proud of them all. 

The Hartford medal total looked like this....

26 Gold medals, 37 Silver medals & 22 Bronze
