The National Artistic Gymnastics Championships will take place this Friday and Saturday at the Windhoek Show grounds courtesy of a N$25000 sponsorship from Bank Windhoek
Hosted by the Excelsior Gymnastic Club, the two-day event will bring together 68 boys and 92 girls from six gymnastics clubs from around the country.
The clubs that will participate includes Excelsior Gymnastics Club, Walvis Bay Gymnastics Club, Swakopmund Gymnastics Club, Otjiwarongo Gymnastics Club, Keetmanshoop Gymnastics Club and Tsumeb Gymnastics Club.
“Without this sponsorship, Excelsior Gymnastic Club, on behalf of  the Namibia Gymnastic Federation, would not be able to host this competition. Bank Windhoek has made this possible and we are very happy for their continued support year after year,” said James van der Westhuizen, Chairperson of Excelsior Gymnastics Club.
When handing over the sponsorship, Nora Ndopu, Communication Practitioner: Stakeholder Engagement at Bank Windhoek said: “Our sponsorship to host this event is testimony of our commitment towards the development and promotion of smaller sport codes, such as gymnastics, which are sometimes overlooked by major private companies. Our sponsorship is also testimony of our commitment to raise the Namibian child through a holistic approach of physical and mental activity. Participation of children in sports and extra-mural activities also keeps them away from engaging in anti-social behaviour.”
All levels of Men’s Artistic Gymnastics and the Women Artistic Gymnastics Level 5 and up will take place on 2 November, while level 1 to 4 of the Women Artistic Gymnastics will take place on Saturday, 3 November.
