See our history-making Olympic trampoline gymnasts alongside our world tumbling and double mini trampoline medallists live at Echo Arena Liverpool from 23-24 September.

Olympian Nathan Bailey will be hoping to retain the men’s title he won in 2016, but will be up against stiff competition in former British champion Liverpool’s own Luke Strong. And who will take the title for the women’s trampoline? We will certainly see a new British champion – maybe double Olympian Kat Driscoll will take the crown once again?

Watch our brilliant British tumbling and double-mini trampoline gymnasts, who are world class! At the 2016 European Championships our tumblers were crowned champions’ in the men’s and women’s team events with our DMT stars also winning medals. The men’s and women’s disability trampoline gymnasts will also battle to be crowned the best in Britain! One thing’s for sure, our trampoline, tumbling and double-mini trampoline gymnasts will inspire and entertain the crowds!

Prepare to be wowed as gymnasts soar 20ft in the air, perform gravity-defying somersaults and twists in the spectacular individual trampoline championships. Watch as rivals thunder down the sprung runway at mind-blowing speed, twisting and somersaulting all the way in the tumbling competitions. And don’t miss the explosive double-mini trampoline competitions where gymnasts hurtle down the track, launching into two huge aerial tricks before coming back down to earth in style!

The gymnasts that make it through to the British Championships have proved themselves as the very best in the country and the routines performed will be truly world class. Every gymnast will be competing to win British titles in each of the events

The weekend’s entertainment will feature the trampoline, tumbling and double-mini trampoline junior and senior qualifiers on Saturday. Gymnasts will battle it out for the top eight places in each category, in the hope of qualifying for the finals on Sunday. Sunday’s finals will see the gymnasts going head to head with each other for coveted medals, aiming to be crowned British Champions!
