Gymnastics set to call the Gold Coast home for the next four years.

Gymnastics Australia

Major Events Gold Coast is excited to announce that Gymnastics Australia is calling the Gold Coast home for the next four years.

The partnership will see the Gold Coast Sports and Leisure Centre, home to the Commonwealth Games and other major events, host six premier gymnastics events over the next four years, including for the first time, the Australian Championships.

Gymnastics Australia (GA) is the national governing body of gymnastics and oversees Australia’s competitive representation at elite sporting events such as the Olympic and Commonwealth Games, as well as promoting fundamental movement and physical literacy philosophies through community and school participation-based programs.

Gymnastics Australia CEO, Kitty Chiller AM, says she is thrilled to be extending the already strong partnership with Tourism Events Queensland and Major Events Gold Coast for another four years and with the addition of the sport’s main elite competition event.

We are excited to be extending our partnership with the City of Gold Coast to now also host the Australian Gymnastics Championships, where the top gymnasts from each state and territory compete for the title of Australian Champion in all GymSports for the next two years.

Tourism Minister Kate Jones said events like Gymnastics Australia’s National Clubs Carnival and Australian Championships would play an important role in the state’s economic recovery.

Major events like this pump thousands of dollars back into the local businesses, support local jobs and help to rebuild our economy.  These events will deliver a great boost for local businesses at a time when everyone is doing it tough.

Jan McCormick, CEO Major Events Gold Coast added:

We are delighted that the Gold Coast will continue to be the home of Gymnastics, showcasing the Gold Coast Sports and Leisure Centre, as well being able to offer participants many of the wonderful attractions here on the Coast. We look forward to the competition returning in 2021 and invite Gold Coasters to come out and support the events
