Established in 1977, NTGA is one of the premier trampoline clubs in the UK. Located at Northampton Trampoline Centre, Benham Sports Arena, Moulton Park, Northampton.
Our purpose built venue includes 12 Olympic sized trampolines, fully matted, video analysis, static & bungee rigs. The trampoline centre operates a comprehensive timetable throughout the year for recreational classes, holiday sessions, birthday parties, groups, special needs along with our squad pathways, following the national & international competition structure.
NTGA was the proud host of pre-Olympic training camps for Australian and Japanese gymnasts prior to the London Olympic Games in 2012. The club has strong domestic and international links with gymnasts from Britain, Portugal and Switzerland also attending training camps at the Trampoline Centre.
The club also runs recreational & foundation squad trampoline classes from our satellite venues in Kettering (Southfield School for Girls) and Corby (Lodge Park Sports Centre).
NTGA has produced numerous County, Regional and British Champions such as James Higgins, 5-time Men’s Senior British Champion. The Club also has a proud history of performers who have represented Great Britain at the highest level. In 2000, Jaime Moore became the first female gymnast to compete for Great Britain in trampoline gymnastics at the Sydney Olympic Games. Head-coach Tracy Whittaker-Smith represented Team GB at London 2012, supporting Britain’s sole trampoline gymnast Katherine Driscoll and continues in her role as national coach in the build up to Rio 2016.
Trampolining is the perfect sport to develop confidence and improve balance, strength, co-ordination, agility and aerial awareness. NTGA have helped to train a variety of other sportsmen and women, including England Women Rugby Team, Northampton Saints Rugby Football Club, Olympic High Jumpers, Skiers, Snowboarders and Gymnasts, as well as providing training for the necessary skills to become a stunt man/woman.
