25 Years

The Club would like to thank and congratulate Ting and Sue for 25 years of exceptional service. They have seen the club through its ups and downs and with their un-wavering dedication have supported the Club and gymnasts at all times.

Ting has seen many of his gymnasts strive and succeed at State and National competitions, and has watched others successfully move across to the High Performance Centre and Australian Institute of Sport.

Sue commenced with the Kindergym program and has worked hard to maintain and strengthen the program over the years.

Both Sue and Ting have watched many kids grow up in the Club and move on over the years. It is great to see so many of them now returning to the Club and training in the Adult Program or with their own children to start the next generation of young gymnasts.

We hope that Sue and Ting will remain with the club for many years to come as the Club continues to grow and prosper.
