The gymsports on showcase include artistic, rhythmic, acrobatic, trampoline, and team gymnastics, with both men and women competitions. The age and abilities of athletes will vary, with the competition hosting level 1 athletes, right up to masters.

“We are so excited to be granted this great opportunity to host the NSW Country Championships. We’ve been preparing to host this event since 1985 when we attended our first Country Championships in Gunnedah, which was hosted over one day.”

“We hope our new additions to the facility meet with approval and that the town of Armidale, which like all our other struggling rural communities, shows you what country hospitality is all about,” a spokesperson for the Armidale City Gymnastics Club said.
