Gymnastics Club at Hertswood

You will no doubt be aware of the recent start to developments at Hertswood Academy and Hertswood Centre.  This will be a two year process resulting in first class educational, sports and theatre provision for the community, due to open in September 2019.

To facilitate this Hertswood Centre will close permanently after Sunday 24th September 2017.  Hertsmere Borough Council, Hertsmere Leisure and Hertswood Academy have been working together to find alternative facilities to accommodate current users of the Sports Centre.

The Hawks Gymnastic Club has over 40 years of transforming people’s lives.  Many of our customers and staff are second or third generation gymnasts and the club is loved by the many thousands of its past and present members. 

Hertsmere Leisure and the dedicated coaches are passionate about the club and are steadfast in our determination to bridge the period when the facilities close.  It is with regret that notice of this has been much shorter than we hoped.

Despite many efforts to find accommodation for gymnastics in Borehamwood a suitable space has not been found, but identical times and space has been arranged at the Furzefield Centre in Potters Bar, less than 5 miles away.  We appreciate that this might be inconvenient for gymnasts and parents.  

However we appeal to our gymnasts will remain with the club and will help it survive this change.   We expect to move the gymnastics classes with exactly the same set-up to Furzefield without disruption when Hertswood Centre closes.

We accept that for some gymnasts this change will not be possible and will of course administer any refunds for users who do not wish to make this change, but with the help of club members and parents we hope we can make this work.
