“Since Ella joined The Meapa from another club around a year ago, her skills have come in immensely. The staff work so hard to get the best out of their gymnasts and the range of equipment they use is vast. Ella has been made to feel so welcome by the friendly and committed staff.”
“Both my daughters train at The Meapa and both love it! My eldest was chosen to join a development group and has progressed very quickly. The Meapa staff are friendly and my daughters feel happy and safe whilst training. I highly recommend The Meapa to anyone considering gymnastics.”
“My daughter joined the Meapa two years ago, and since has gone from strength to strength. The coaches have helped her to not only expand her skill set and achieve her goals but have given her the support she needs to become more self confident and believe in herself. I have seen first hand how regardless of age or ability the Meapa nurture young children bringing out the best in them.”
