Wickers was established in 1988 by owner and welfare officer Katy Hodgson when she was only 16 years old. Now 29 years later, the club has over 900 members and is still growing.

We are a British Gymnastics Gymmark and Sport England ClubMark recognised club, and are proud to say we were the first club in Sussex to gain this. We are re-accredited with GymMark on an annual basis.

We are the only gymnastics club in the Adur District with a permanent gymnastics facility! We are a registered charity.

We are a friendly local gymnastics club, offering gymnastics to children of all ages and abilities. We offer preschool gymnastics to children who are competent walkers (Gloworms), independent classes for children aged 3 - 4 years (Butterflies), Recreational gymnastics for children aged 3 years and over, a competitive programme in General squads and Artistic Squads.

The club has 20 British Gymnastics qualified coaches, 1 ballet teacher , 1 choreographer and 21 leadership academy members. The club also benefits from 3 admin personal, a handy man and a great FROGS team. F.R.O.G.S stands for 'Friends of Gymnasts' who are parents helping with the raising of funds towards club development and the training of staff. All staff are trained in first aid, are CRB checked and have child protection qualifications.
