About Us


Sittingbourne Swifts, formerly named Swallows Gymnastics Club, is a non-profit organisation based at the Swallows Leisure Centre in Sittingbourne. Swifts is a club run for the community that promotes and encourages gymnastics for all. Under its new name, Swifts has been running since 1998 and is the longest established club in Sittingbourne.

Swifts originated as an Artistic club until 2004 when Acrobatics and Tumbling became its new focus. Since then, gymnasts from Swifts have held over numerous national and regional titles. Squad gymnasts train up to 6 times a week and compete in Acrobatics and Tumbling across the country.

The club also holds recreational classes for over 150 children. Recreational gymnasts have the opportunity to compete in in-house competitions and camps.
We have a strong team of coaches, who are fully qualified in disciplines from recreational and Acrobatics to trampolining and tumbling. The team also consists of dedicated and hardworking gymnasts, parents and volunteers.
