Four school girls from Bridgwater are jumping for joy after scooping the first team prize in a regional Trampolining competition.

Chelsea and Georgie Taylor who are sisters, Faith Taylor and Leni Rayner won the Under 7 team award in the Griffin Trampolining competition which was held recently in Street. All four girls are members of the 1610 Love Sport Trampolining club which trains regularly at Trinity Sports & Leisure and at Robert Blake and Elmwood Centre in Bridgwater. Faith Taylor also came third in the U8 individual award in the competition which involved 300 children from schools and sports clubs all across the South West.

Other members of the 1610 Trampolining club also did well in the competition, Isobel Randell gained a third place in the  Year 8 individual award and Hadley Carreras- Bennett came 5th in the  year 7 individual award.

1610 Trampolining coach Adele Ranford said she is delighted with how the children performed: “We are thrilled that the members of the club all did so well as they all try very hard at our sessions at Trinity and at Robert Blake and Elmwood. To have gained a first team place was an outstanding effort and I know all the children will want to build on their success and continue training and enjoying what is a fun and accessible sport. The children gain so much in terms of fitness and confidence at the Trampolining club which is part of our Love Sport programme, which also involves gymnastics and karate. “
