Welcome to Bradford Olympian Trampoline Club

We are based at Bradford Girls Grammar School and host both recreational training and a very successful competition squad. We are open to boys and girls of all abilities with a minimum age of 5.

The aim of the club is to provide a safe, effective and child friendly environment in which members can participate in trampolining under the guidance of appropriately qualified coaches.​

We provide a child / member centred, coach led programme and endeavour to help all children to develop to their optimum level of performance.

Our coaches are all British Gymnastic qualified coaches at the appropriate level and have been screened for their suitability to work with children.

Our Story

Bradford Olympian T.C. was established in 1985 when it was then formerly known as Wallabies T.C. The club started life under the British Trampoline Federation with just one coach and two borrowed trampolines, in a Sports Centre in Leeds, offering one session a week.

Head Coach Mike Abbott developed a competition group which enjoyed moderate regional success. Following a move to Bradford in 1992, the club dropped out of competition for a while, until another coach became attached to the club in 2005. In 2007, the club started competing again.

The club moved the training base and set up a tiered system of recreation sessions at Upper Schools around Bradford, feeding into a competition squad based at Bradford Girls Grammar School. Trampoline Gymnasts now compete at Regional Grading and other competitions throughout the year.

In 2010, the club began a coach development programme with a view to increasing participation in the sport and to open it up to a wider audience.

Through links with various School Sports Partnerships the club was able to link with many Bradford schools (Primary and Upper) as well as schools in Leeds. The club also developed links with groups who work with people with visual or hearing impairments.

The club caters for children from school entry age through to adults, with a range of abilities from no experience to trampolinists aiming to compete at the highest levels. Our coaches all have British Gymnastics Trampoline Coach qualifications. We have coaches at Level 3, 2 and 1 plus other members who are awaiting suitable coaching courses.

We have developed strong links with both the Bradford Metropolitan District Council, the Local Education Authority, and West Yorkshire Sport and provide coaches for various Summer programmes.​

More recently since 2015 the club has had success at National level with squad members qualifying through to the National Development Pathway Regional Team Semi-Finals where they represented Yorkshire. Indeed in 2017 we went one better with one of our 13 year-olds gaining 2nd place in the Level 4 National Finals. This feat was repeated in 2019 where one of our 11 year-olds achieved a 2nd place finish in her category.

Due to Covid restrictions the club were unable to open between March 2020 and May 2021, however since reopening we have managed to establish ourselves as one of the leading clubs in Yorkshire, with continued success and medals at the Yorkshire Championships, the Regional Challenge Cup where 6 of our talented squad members were selected to represent Yorkshire, and at the 2022 and 2023 British Championships where one of our talented trampolinists secured consecutive bronze medals.
