Become part of the Garioch Gymnastics Family

We encourage children and adults of all abilities into healthy activity through gymnastics and gymnastics-related exercise.

We are a non-profit Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO).
Everything we do is to the benefit of our participants.

Garioch Gymnastics Club is one of the most successful clubs in Scotland. Set up 34 years ago with only a handful of participants, the club has expanded so much that our precious home facility in Inverurie became too small, prompting our move to our much larger full time facility in Kintore.

In addition to our main facility, we reduce your carbon footprint by providing satellite gymnastics classes around Aberdeenshire: from Ellon to Insch, and Alford to Kemnay.

Our coaching team works tirelessly with all our participants to enable them to fulfil their potential and meet their aspirations.
