About Salto

Salto Lisburn

Salto is a vibrant and active centre, over 2000 people use our facility every week through schools, parent and toddlers, classes and squads. We are proud to have over 1200 current British Gymnastics members and 50 members of Gymnastics Ireland regularly using our facilities.

Through our range of programmes, we offer gymnastics activity for everyone. We have created opportunities for our performance gymnasts to move into the Salto Gymfusion display team or undertake level 1 coaching awards. in Salto there is a huge emphasis on encouraging our coaches to self-develop and excel to the next level of coaching qualification which helps motivate them and of course provide quality gymnastics coaching to our members.  Our Elite WAG and MAG squads have the opportunity to be selected for Northern Europeans, Europeans, Worlds, and Commonwealth Games. We are the only gym club in Northern Ireland to be represented at all these events.

What Makes Us A Special Gymnastics Centre

We have an excellent relationship with Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council  who provided the land for the facility and were instrumental in our bid to become an Olympic Training camp. Our Club won the Lisburn Sports Club of the year in 2022.  We have excellent links with many schools in NI with 15 schools regularly taking part in gymnastics classes at Salto throughout each week of the school year. This provides an opportunity to introduce many children to the sport of gymnastics.  It is also a means of talent spotting. 

In addition we work with local education providers (FE and HE) in the provision of training,  coach mentoring, employment and work experience for their students.
