About the Crossway Gymnastics Centre
The Crossway Gymnastics Centre (formerly the Crossway Gym Club) was developed by a fund raising venture by local people to establish an affordable athletic facility for children and young people of all abilities.
Costing over £350,000 to build, the centre was officially opened in July 1991 by Dave Rozzell, the then national coach for Special Needs Olympics.
Over the years Crossway has provided a quality service to the local and surrounding community being a focal point for Thamesmead in particular.
Crossway is a purpose built, fully equipped gymnasium offering the highest standards in gymnastics training and physical exercise for all ages.
- A fully sprung floor
- Safe landing areas
- Ball Pool
- Soft play equipment
- Specialist equipment for special needs
The Current Facilty
Crossway is led by a head coach with a team of fully qualified coaches. The Centre offers a service to enable gymnasts to train to an elite standard representing the local authorities of Bexley and Greenwich, and the London Gymnastics Federation (LGF), at local, regional and national levels.
Classes are provided for recreational beginners and many of these youngsters progress through the centre's squads to acheive a high standard of gymnastics. Those who cannot obtain an elite level are encouraged to achieve their highest standard according to their ability.
The centre also caters for Disability Gymnastics across the boroughs - a service welcomed by carers and physiotherapists. Disability Gymnastics members find their sport rewarding, while improving their mobility and social skills, they also gain a sense of achievement.
