Case Study

With plans to refurbish areas of their current facility, Pinewood Gymnastics Club in Wokingham initially approached Spaciotempo UK Ltd in 2010. Their facility was not long enough to house a full length competition standard tumble track, therefore part of the run up was outside.

Due to British weather this was obviously not effective or practical and a cover over the run up was essential.

Their original plans for a permanent structure to be added to the building were rejected so they approached Spaciotempo with regard to attaching a retractable tunnel. Pinewood Gymnastics Club have built up a great partnership with Wokingham Borough Council and they very kindly funded the whole project to support and aid the training of the Pinewood and Great Britain Elite Tumblers. This fantastic grant allowed the project to go ahead and an order was placed in October 2011.

Tumbling is a fast discipline that requires dynamic reactions, spatial awareness, co-ordination, power, strength and courage. Tumbling is extremely spectacular with gymnasts powering along a 25 metre track performing a series of somersaults and twists. The multiple somersaults are a crowd pleaser, leaving the audience on the edge of their seats. Pinewood Gymnastics Club has a fantastic reputation as one of the very best and most successful tumbling clubs in the UK, currently boasting:

• 9 National Squad members
• 1 Welsh Squad member
• 7 British Champions
• Junior Men’s European Champion
• Women’s Junior Team European
Champions
• Junior Men’s European Team Silver
Medalists
• Junior Women’s European Silver
Medalist
•3 x World Age Group Champions

The retractable tunnel supplied by Spaciotempo provides a link from the outside of the building through to the tumbling track inside and measures 2.40mtrs wide, 8.00mtrs long and total height of 2.74mtrs. It can be retracted and stored away when not in use.

Scott Jameson, Director of Sales for Spaciotempo commented “Our sports tunnels are predominantly used by Football and Rugby Clubs as a players’ walkway from the dressing room to the pitch, therefore we are very proud to have supplied one to such a prestigious Gymnastics Club, proving that they can be used for many more applications.”
