Lilleshall National Sports Centre in Shropshire has opened the doors to a new artistic gym following a £1m investment.

The launch is part of a three-month refurbishment at the venue – dubbed the Home of British Gymnastics – designed to support and prepare athletes on the road to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games later this year.

British Gymnastics, Sport England, facility operator Serco and Gymnova worked in partnership to create the new facility, which will support an extensive programme of regional, club and wider community use.

"Thanks to our performance teams and the input of our creative staff, we have one of the best training facilities in the world, which compliments the standard of our World Class Programme.

"British Gymnastics is extremely grateful for the invaluable support from Sport England, Serco and Gymnova for making this possible.

"I look forward to seeing more of our gymnasts making use of the new facility in the coming months as our preparations step up towards Tokyo 2020," said Jane Allen, British Gymnastics CEO.
