NCAAC has a very successful competitive section of the club taking girls through the lower level General Gymnastics competitions, Novice competitions, Intermediate competitions and through to Regional & National competitions.

Our History

EST: 1863

N.C.A.A.C. stands for Northampton & County Amateur Athletics Club.Founded in 1863 it embraced such sports as boxing, cycling, swimming athletics and, of course, gymnastics. We are the oldest gymnastics club in the country and, by virtue of a Royal Charter, the only sports club in the county allowed to use the coat of arms of Northamptonshire which we display proudly as our club badge. Today, only the gymnastics section remains but we are still known as NCAAC. In 1888, along with four other clubs, NCAAC founded the “National Amateur Gymnastics Association” which, as the British Gymnastics Association, is now the governing body of our sport. For many years, the club trained in local school gymnasiums until finally, in August 2000, we moved into a full-time training venue on Moulton Park Industrial Estate. 10 years later we relocated to our current facility in the Rothersthorpe Road Trading Estate where our circa 500 members enjoy our fully equipped training and competition facilities.
