A Team of 11 gymnasts took part in The Pat Wade Classic Competition in Stoke on Trent at the weekend. They were among some of the best gymnasts in GB with a large number of competitors from England, Scotland and Wales. Monarchs mens pair Joe Blake and Kian Hawkes were in second place after two really good routines on Saturday and then had an amazing combined routine on Sunday to win them well deserved gold medals in the 12-18 age group. Also finishing in first place were our new mens four, Joe Reed, Toby Baker, Jack Warburton and Mason Wall who were competing for only the second time this year and wowed the audience with two brilliant routines. Our newly put together trio, Ornela Velaj, Jess Reed and Evie Tissington and young pair, Jennifer Marshall and Summer Belben managed to come out with very good scores after two excellent routines on the Saturday and will be ones to watch next year. All of these gymnasts as well as some of their team mates will be competing in Scotland in January.
