With the support of the City of Gold Coast and Tourism and Events Queensland, Gymnastics Australia is excited that the multi-Gymsport National Clubs Gymnastics Carnival will be held on the Gold Coast from 2018 for a three-year period.
In 2019 the event is scheduled to be a 18-day festival of gymnastics, running from September 11 – 29, and will attract almost 5000 competitors, officials, and support staff – not to mention spectators – from across Australia.
From 2018 to 2020 the National Clubs Gymnastics Carnival will be held at Gold Coast Sports and Leisure Centre, a venue that also played host to the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Home to the largest gymnastics club in the country and following the success of the Commonwealth Games, the Gold Coast has proven to be a true hub for the sport with growth in participation at this event stronger than ever.
The National Clubs Carnival features the Olympic disciplines of Men’s Artistic, Women’s Artistic, Rhythmic
and Trampoline Gymnastics, as well as competitive Aerobic and Acrobatic Gymnastics, plus the noncompetitive discipline of Gymnastics for All.
Highlights of the competition include the Women’s Artistic Gymnastics Australian Classic event featuring Queensland locals Georgia Godwin and Georgia Rose Brown, joining Men’s Artistic, Rhythmic and Trampoline Gymnastics as they all hold selection trials for the 2019 FIG World Championships. All of these trials are being held in conjunction with the National Clubs Carnival competition.
