Saltire Team Gymnastics was formed in 2011, following the merger of Dalkeith Gymnastics Club and Midlothian TeamGym, when both clubs made Meadowmill Sports Centre their principal training venue.
At present, Saltire has a membership of over 400 gymnasts, including pre-school, beginners, development, competitive, performance and adults.
What is TeamGym?
TeamGym is a gymnastics discipline which takes place over three pieces of apparatus; floor, vault and trampette. It is fast-paced and highly technical, and allows gymnasts to be part of exciting team competitions. Teams are made up of 6-12 gymnasts, and can be female, male or mixed.
Routines in TeamGym require excellent teamwork, as well as the acrobatic skill that is essential for all gymnastics disciplines. As such, TeamGym fosters great team spirit amongst gymnasts, as well as providing entertainment for spectators!

Saltire's vision is "to be the most inclusive and successful TeamGym club in the UK" as we continue to grow in the coming years.
2016 was a successful year for the club. In July, our Senior Women's Team were crowned British Champions in Liverpool. This success was followed by an impressive seven Saltire gymnasts being selected to represent Great Britain in the TeamGym European Championships, held in Slovenia in October 2016.
Two of our representatives, Adam Souter and Fraser McLeod, were part of the Junior Men's team who won Bronze at the European Championships - Great Britain's first ever medal at the event!
