Our Club aims to perform as well as we can in our chosen sport, whilst at the same time having a lot of fun and enjoying the wonderful attributes calisthenics has to offer.
One of the special features of any sport is the opportunity to socialise and make new friends. It is the people who participate in a team that make a happy club and add so much to the shared good times.
We hope our website will give you an insight into how Ashgrove Calisthenics operates, however if there are any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Our club first resided in a church hall in Ashburton and was known as St Matthews Calisthenic Club, and participated as a competitive club at local competitions.
In 1980 the club moved to a more suitable facility, our present location, in Ashburton. At this time the club changed its name to Ashgrove Calisthenic Club and in 1990 became an incorporated body.
Our Principal Coach, Bev G, has been with our club since the late 1960’s.
