The British Championships for gymnastics
The partnership between British Gymnastics and Liverpool has been long and illustrious, with Britain’s first World medallists in both Men’s and Women’s Artistic Gymnastics (Neil Thomas and Beth Tweddle) both being closely associated with the City.
The British Championships for gymnastics are held annually in the City and have seen an audience base grow from under 3,000, to now selling out multiple days and over 15,000 tickets, due to the increased popularity of the sport within the northwest and wider UK.
These world class, established firm favourites are a result of the working relationship between British Gymnastics, those at the M&S Bank Arena and colleagues within the City. The common goal of producing the best possible experience for all those watching ensures that the several thousand spectators will see the best gymnastics possible from our elite British talent, delivered to the highest possible standards.
The 2022 World Championships will be the culmination of a decade long strategy with the City and will showcase international gymnastics as fans of the sport watch global gymnastic superstars including World Champions and Olympians.
Key events held in the City spanning over a decade include regional, national and numerous international competitions including:
Artistic British Championships – a showcase of twists, turns and ultimate skills from our gymnasts as the women perform on vault, uneven bars, beam and floor, and the men tackle the parallel bars, high bar, pommel horse, vault, floor and rings.
Acrobatic Gymnastics British Championships - gymnasts in pairs, trios and groups perform intricate balances, multiple somersaults and gymnasts being dramatically thrown and caught.
Aerobic Gymnastics British Championships - high energy music and skills, with individual and group routines performed in a blur of muscle-burning jumps, lifts and lunges.
Rhythmic Gymnastics British Championships - spell-binding graceful routines as gymnasts master the ribbon, hoop, rope, clubs and ball.
