Two days of competition brought success for the City of Birmingham Gymnastics Club at the British Tumbling Tournament which was held at Fenton Manor Sports Centre, Stoke-on-Trent.

Day one comprised of two tumble passes and awarded individual championships medals; it further served as a qualifier for day two on selection of the top eight scorers. Day two comprised of an overall event champion whereby the scores from day would be carried forwards and combined with the scores of day two in order to find the overall championship positions.
