SWGC is an after school club that operates in Little Venice on a Wednesday and Cranleigh on a Thursday. We are a recreational club offering gymnastics and trampolining to children aged between 4 years plus who would like to train between 45 minutes and 2 hours a week.

We are a friendly, family club that is mindful of the fact that children attend with friends and siblings and parents share lifts.


South Western Gymnastics Club was founded in South West London in 1982 and was taken over by the Gale family in 1994. Club Cranleigh opened in 1998, followed by Club Little Venice in 2010. Luke Gale, who also runs Acorn Gymnastics Club has been running the club solely since 2004. The club is now known as SWGC.


SWGC is a general recreational gymnastics and trampolining club that exists to promote the sport of gymnastics in its local community. The club is open to children of all ages, gender, ethnic background and physical ability.

The club also encourages gymnasts to undertake additional training to partake in regional competitions. Outstanding and potential elite gymnasts will be referred to clubs with elite squads when outstanding potential talent is identified.
