Middleton Arena

Middleton Arena is prominently located just off the A576 Oldham Road, making it also a really accessible place to learn to do gymnastics if you live in Middleton, Oldham amd Heywood.

This venue runs using both the Beth Tweddle Gym Stars programme and The Beth Tweddle Total Gymnastics Academies programme.

We run our classes in the large sports hall and the classes are visible through the upstairs viewing gallery. There is a club cafe located downstairs from which you can purchase hot drinks and snacks and access their free wifi.

Session details: 

Gym Stars: The children will be working through our Gym Stars programme using our bespoke Beth Tweddle gym stars award system. We aim for them to achieve one award per 10 weeks with their progress being monitored and recorded regularly within their progress booklets.

 HUB Academy: The children will be working through the British Gymnastics Proficiency Awards and the Advanced Proficiency Awards. Gymnasts will begin at badge 8 pending an assessment from their personal coach within the first few weeks.

First session:

Parents can stay for the first session should they wish to do so, however after the first session they will not be permitted to stay as the coaches will require the gymnasts full attention at all times during the session.

Clothing/Jewellery:

Gymnasts are required to wear a t-shirt and shorts/tracksuit bottoms or leggings with any long hair tied up and not wearing any jewellery. All earrings must be removed and if this is not possible, they must be taped up. They must also bring a drink to their classes. They will train in their bare feet.

Progress booklet:

They must also bring along their progress booklet as this is where the coaches will record all progress and mark off what skills have been achieved. If a gymnast loses their progress booklet, a new one must be purchased at a cost of £3.50 so please ensure that they are kept safe.

What to do when you arrive:

Please arrive about 5 - 10 minutes prior to the start of your session. As you enter the leisure complex please inform the staff that you are with Beth Tweddle Gym Stars and they will let you through. You can come t the hall no more than ten minutes prior to your class beginning to allow the previous class to exit safely - once the previous class has departed you will be invited into the hall.
