Nemato Gymnastics Show (19 December)

We had our first ever amazing fun Nemato Gymnastics Show. It was a highly entertaining show with dance, all sorts of stunts on the mini and black-top trampolines and on the mats. The Majorettes girls did a nice guest show with traditional dance. The gymnastics master piece was a four levels high human tower with the brave boy on top jumping down with a front flip. The stars of the show were: Siphamandla Baku, Liyama Nxopho, Sphelele Qozi, Bongani Qozi, Lihle Nxopho and Aphelele Makeleni. The choreography was done by Ashley Backward.

South African Games (27 September - 1 October)

The five day trip of our gymnasts to South African Games in Gauteng was a great success. The results were far beyond our expectations. Only 9 month after starting our club, three of our gymnasts won medals at the highest level of gymnastics competition in South Africa: 2 silver and 1 gold!!!
Thanks to many generous donations we have been able to make the trip extra special with a lot of sightseeing in Gauteng. For most it was the first time to Gauteng.
The trip has been made possible by: Eastern Cape Gymnastics Association, Stenden South Africa, Rhodes University, Hendri Frankenfeld Architects and many generous personal donations.

Eastern Cape Champs (13 August)

We were invited to the Eastern Cape Championships in Port Elizabeth, held at the Anderson Gymnastics Club. This competition showed that there is more to learn, but many coaches from other clubs were very impressed by our gymnasts' improvements. For our gymnasts, it was a happy medals day! After the competition we spoiled our champs at the Boardwalk, to see a bit more of Port Elizabeth.
