Nile Wilson Gymnastics
Changing the game
Our vision is to run gymnastics clubs around the country that ‘Change the Game’, delivering unique and more engaging activities balanced against requirements of the gymnastics programs.
We are striving to look at things in a different way and increase participation in gymnastics at all levels. From pre-school to adults (yes parents, that means you!), the experience in the gym is based around putting a smile on your and your children's faces.
The recreational program will increase in order to fill spaces on waiting lists and get as many people as possible involved in this incredible sport. We believe we can make your local gymnastics club a centre for your family’s recreational time during any week.
Our Rotherham site is our first one within Nile Wilson Gymnastics and will be the benchmark for all our clubs in the future years.
Originally the Rotherham School of Gymnastics, it was a club proudly built up over the last 10 years. It has over 750 existing members and boast over 10,000 square feet of excellent facilities.
It has it’s own custom built cafeteria, as well as excellent changing and toilet facilities. It’s reception area is large and provides a welcome first space in the club for children and parents.
Over the next 12 weeks the club will be going through an entire refurbishment in order to have every area of it up to the standard that we want at Nile Wilson Gymnastics.

Nile Wilson has been a gymnast from the age of 5 years old at Leeds Gymnastics Club. Nile was crowned British Junior Champion in March 2014 and received the Young Sportsman male award at the Leeds Sports Awards.
He competed at the 2014 European Championships in Sofia in May, winning five gold medals to become the first British gymnast ever to win five gold medals at the European Junior Gymnastics Championships.
He was then selected to compete for the England Commonwealth Games team, graduating to senior level where he won 4 medals, 2 Gold, 1 Silver and a Bronze in the All-Round.
In 2015 Nile was part of the team that won GB’s first world team silver medal and was the first British Gymnast to compete in a Parallel Bars final.
In 2016 Nile competed in the Rio Olympics where he won a bronze medal in the High Bar final, again a first for GB in gymnastics.
In 2017 Nile placed 6th in the All-Round World final and in 2018 he won 5 medals at the Commonwealth Games, 3 Gold and 2 Silver to take his Commonwealth medal total to 9.
As Nile's father, I have obviously walked almost every step with Nile so far in his career, so gymnastics is in my blood as much as it is his. Indeed, as a whole family we are deeply passionate about participation in gymnastics in this country. I am thrilled at the opportunity to work with everybody at Nile Wilson Gymnastics, we have an incredible team of people behind it and are so excited about the future.

Being the Director of Nile Wilson Gymnastics, I aim to create an unforgettable experience for everyone walking through door, maintain the highest standards across all areas, keeping people happy, active, healthy and feeling like a superhero!"
“Having managed Nile for the last few years I have had the privilege of being involved in this project from idea to our first site in Rotherham. I am incredibly proud of what we are doing and know that we are absolutely changing the game when it comes to participation of gymnastics in this country. We have some very talented people working throughout our organisation and the months and years ahead will be hugely exciting."
