Twist & Flip Gymnastics Academy  was started by Nicky Nicol after working alongside Beth Tweddle’s Total Gymnastics Academy coaches at Cleethorpes Leisure Centre back in 2010 after speaking with them about the lack of the sport within the area, Nicky’s idea was to start small running out of school clubs trying to give more children the opportunity to try the sport. Nicky is a strong believer that every child should get the opportunity to try the sport.  With the support of my husband Mark & son Jack Twist & Flip was launched!


Our qualified and experienced coaches provide gymnastics classes from Monday to Saturday in Twist & Flip Centre as well as delivering PE lessons & out of schools clubs in the local Primary schools. We have a range of options to suit different styles, ages and abilities including parent and toddler sessions, disability gymnastics and adult classes.
