SEVEN-YEAR-OLD twins Isobel and Lauren Holloway were among six Dragonflyers trampolinists in their first external competition at Oxford.

It was hosted by Higher Energy and saw many clubs from across the south and London taking part.

Dragonflyers took a team of 12 children aged seven to 14, of mixed ability and experience, and 13 medals were achieved – five gold, five silver and two bronze plus the third highest score among all ages and gender in the highest-ability group.

Libby Morton, ten, opened the medal hunt with two sensational routines in the top-graded category E, taking gold in the under-11 girls’ event.

Next up in E class was the under-15 girls’ team of Anya Johnston, Taylor Cleall and Alice Chapman. All three girls outjumped all the other clubs’ competitors to finish first, second and third respectively, taking team gold.

The Holloways finished second and fourth, having gracefully completed two ten-bounce routines in the seven-and-under group.

Rosie Budge finished a close fourth in the under-nines while Ellen Kempson gained silver in the under-11s, Jess Murray silver in the under-13s and Jenna Partridge bronze in the under-13s.

Toby Smith somersaulted and twisted his way to silver in the under-11 boys’ category against tough competition. Johnston was awarded the trophy for the third highest score of the day.

With many young talented performers in the Dragonflyers squad, highly-skilled coaches and a fantastic support team of qualified officials plus a professional qualified administration team, the club are driven to succeed while maintaining a safe, friendly low injury risk environment.

Dragonflyers have a Gym Mark and Club Mark and are approved by Sport England, who have funded a new international trampoline.
