Velocity was founded in 2014 by Franki Riches and Sarah Kemp who, having coached successfully together for 5 years, endeavoured to create a local club in the Sevenoaks district offering high quality gymnastics classes for all. They were fortunate to establish themselves within the beautiful grounds of St Michael’s Preparatory School in Otford, where the sporting facilities are second to none.

In January 2016, Velocity made a big leap moving to Hazelwood School in Oxted. The move allowed for a full sized floor, as well as the addition of a full sized competition beam and other training equipment. Although the journey is only just beginning for these coaches, their main aim is to provide gymnastics to children of all abilities, nurturing not only the athlete but the child too through their progressive and friendly coaching methods.
