The Torwood Wheelers is run at Kesgrave Sports Hall in Mead Drive, and features a host of both Cyr wheel and German wheels for people to learn gymnastics on.

The wheel weekend will this year take place from 1-7pm on Saturday, September 30 and from 10am-4pm on Sunday, October 1.

Coaches from the club will be on hand to teach newcomers the basics across the two days, while club members will also be performing for participants to find out some of the moves possible on the wheels.

The club holds weekly sessions and takes part in numerous competitions abroad with other wheel gymnastics clubs.
