Young athletes from Banbury scooped the major honours in a regional twirling competition at Gateway College in Leicester on Sunday.
The youngsters, aged between four and 21, are members of the Banbury Cross Twirlers and were competing against teams from Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire.
Twirling is a growing international sport that combines gymnastics with dance and acrobatics. It requires agility and coordination.
The Banbury club is a member of the British Baton Twirling Sports Association and competes at the highest level – and the team’s showing on Sunday earned them a Special Award for the Outstanding Performance of the Day.
“Their hard work paid off and their performances were amazing. It was a fantastic day and everyone was thrilled by what they achieved.
“We always welcome new members and anyone interested should email for further details.
They can twirl for fun or enter the competitions.”
