AYRSHIRE Acro gymnasts staged their annual summer display at the judo hall in Kilmarnock on Saturday.
Families and friends were entertained as the gymnasts performed routines to show off their choreography, balance, tumbling, strength and flexibility.
Club medals were given out to Emily Farqhuar, Melissa McAtee, Anna Stark, Cara Baillie, Hannah Galloway and Lauren Cromack for their hard work, improvement and dedication to the sport.
Trophies were awarded to Zara Patterson, from the junior team, as the most improved gymnast and to Rebecca Derick, of the seniors, for being an all-round star performer.
The senior team will next perform their skills in front of a European audience at the ‘Fleadh’ gymnastics festival held in Dublin later this month.
Ayrshire Acro’s head coach Gemma Thomson said: “Good luck to them, and a big thank you to all the parents, coaches and gymnasts for all their hard work over the past year.”
