About Derby City Gymnastics Club
Derby City Gymnastics Club was established in 1998, the first sessions being held at various schools and leisure centres around Derby. Over the first 12 months the club had grown from just one session a week to many sessions being held five times a week. The numbers grew so fast that these sessions could not keep up with the demand and so in 2004 we opened our own fully equipped gymnastics centre and soon the membership grew to over 400 gymnasts.
The opportunity then came along to develop Lancaster Sports Centre into a purpose built gymnastics centre and so in January 2007 this site was re-opened. The increased space and better equipment has allowed the club to grow and also enabled the gymnasts to reach their full potential.
There are three directors in Derby City Gymnastics Club:
Dean Walters - The managing director of the club with the direct responsibility for the day to day running of the business. Dean has been a full time coach for over 15 years and is also a British Gymnastics tutor and mentor.
Amber Walters - Director and Secretary for the club. Amber has been a full-time coach for over 10 years and helped develop gymnastics for Derby Council since 1997. In 1999 Amber became the head coach for Sports Acrobatics at the club and has helped develop gymnasts from leisure centre sessions through to becoming National Champions.
Damien Walters - Director for the club and also a former World Class Performance International Gymnast ranked 5th in the world. Damien has progressed from gymnastics to become a world renowned stunt performer and has featured in many hollywood films. Damien has developed many gymnastics in the area of tumbling to become of world class level.
