About Us

From a humble start in 2014, Velocity Gymnastics Academy was brought to life by Sarah and Franki with the mission to provide top quality and accessible gymnastics for all children in the Sevenoaks District. Originally operating out of St Michael's Prep in Otford, we established ourselves in the local area as a new club with a great reputation for putting our gymnasts first.

We quickly outgrew our roots in 18 months, making a big leap to a bigger venue in Hazewood School, Oxted as the beginning of 2016. From here, we expanded from one day to a jam packed 3 day schedule in just over a year, offering competitive Womens' Artistic Gymnastics for the first time alongside our successful Floor & Vault and Recreational programme.

Surviving COVID-19 as a club is something that not everybody managed, but we were lucky to take another leap of faith finding a forever home in 2021 in Edenbridge. For the first time in the district, there was a fully functioning purpose built gymnastics facility for our Artistic Squads, opening up our programme to new ages, different days and even introducing a wider range of disciplines in to our timetable. We're proud to be constantly evolving and improving our club to serve our members with the best experience and making Velocity a destination for all - not just for the elite.

Watch this space - we're only just beginning.
