Astro Gymnastics is home to two very successful displays teams, Astro Eden and Astro Republic. Bothteams take part in a variety of festivals across the country as well as more local displays and of course ‘Astronomical’ Astro’s very own annual display event. Display gymnastics is an ever growing discipline and encourages participation within the sport from complete beginners to current competitors and ex professional.
