Sunderland trampolinists jumping for joy

Have your say

Members of a Sunderland trampoline group are jumping for joy following a successful season.

The youngsters from Washington’s Apollo Trampoline Club managed to clinch a number of medals and good placements at the 2015 National Championships.

Among the successes were four first placements and three third places.

Allison Piper, a member of the club, which trains at Washington Leisure Centre, said: “From Grade 1 right up to Grade 8, they had to compete in Peterborough, Sheffield and Coventry to obtain their places in the finals, which was no easy task.”

She said it was lovely to see them bring some medals back to the North East from the finals.
