About Gymaid

Our story began in 1979 as a trampoline specialist company founded by John and Penny Beer, who with expert knowledge, dedication and commitment made many great accomplishments as the owners of Gymaid. On 3rd November 2010, Gymaid Ltd transferred ownership to Martin Laws (Director) and Liz Laws (Director). Both have a long and experienced background in the sport. They have appointed Claire Greenstreet as Gymaid’s General Manager who deals with the day to day running of the business. 

At Gymaid we have a real passion for gymnastics and it shows in the products we offer. We are very particular about the products we sell and seek only high quality products that offer outstanding safety and value for money.

Event Volunteers

Volunteering is simple; it is about giving your time to do something useful, without getting paid. Gymaid is very grateful to have had a number of volunteers over the years, without them we would be unable to maintain our sponsorship to British Gymnastics. Alongside full time jobs, our volunteers often run clubs themselves and still manage to find the time to give a little more back to the sport they love.

Gymaid sponsors British Gymnastics by supplying all of the competition equipment for Spring Event Series, The British Championships, and some International events. Our volunteers give up their time to help set-up and set-down all of the competition equipment.

We want to say a massive thank you to all our volunteers for all their hard work over the years, we couldn't have done it without your support.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please contact us here.
