Back in 2014, Darryn Clarke opened Elite Gymnastics after years of being told to buy his son gymnastics gear he’d never heard of before. In his search to provide his son with the best, he realised how difficult it could be to know where to look, which size to order, or which products were worth the investment. Eventually, he discovered that UK gymnasts weren’t always being offered the best quality products, so he decided to solve the problem himself.
With the help of a few coaches, Darryn made it his mission to source better quality gymnastics products by understanding what made one better than another at improving a gymnast’s performance.
“Provide a range of high-quality gymnastics products for all ages and levels.”
Our aim is to be a one-stop-shop for all gymnastics needs whilst providing great service, fast delivery, and sound advice on every order.
What We’re All About
Starting out as a family business, our team continues to emphasise family ethics and values in our work culture.
Nothing beats quality you can trust, so our team is always in search of better brands and products.
We’re always here to help and we strive to provide a delightful shopping experience from start to finish.
Being a gymnastics parent can be hard, so we support several gymnasts every year to give back to the community.
What We Offer
Focused initially on handguards, Elite Gymnastics has grown and expanded into leotards, footwear, chalk, training accessories, equipment and much more. Our handpicked range has been tried and tested for peak performance, making us the first UK shop outside of a gym to sell the world’s best brands and products. Everything from premium leotards and leather handguards to quality chalk and innovative accessories, our collection is carefully curated to suit all ages and abilities.
At Elite Gymnastics, we encourage our customers to let us know if there’s anything they can’t find as our dedicated and knowledgeable team is always happy to help. With exceptional service, fast delivery and reliable advice, we provide a 5-star shopping experience for our customers with every order.

From all of us here at Elite Gymnastics to all of you, we’d like to say ‘thank you’!
A Note From Darryn
“As the Managing Director of Elite Gymnastics, I work closely with individuals in all of our departments, including coaches and gymnasts, to improve the business and ensure the team is happy to come to work every day. With a son and daughter keeping me busy at home, I can relate to the struggles that many of our customers face as parents, and I’m proud that we’re a part of making their shopping experience a little bit easier and more enjoyable.”
