Gymnastics, Judo, Basketball - Olympics ready!


During the Summer of 2011, Continental Sports has completed yet another gymnastics training facility installation at Thomas Tallis School in Greenwich which is part of the Greenwich BSF project.

In addition to the bespoke permanent men's and women's artistic gymnastics training facility which includes foam filled dismount pits and a full set of competition and training apparatus, the school also has a six court sports hall, a permanent dojo hall for martial arts training and competition, and outdoor sports pitches.

This school is unique in having such a wide ranging provision of sports specific training facilities.  The school is almost within vaulting distance of the 2012 Olympic Games venues in London and it is anticipated that all the school's sports facilities will be used by gymnasts, judo players and other sports men and women as a training venue for a visting nation to the Games.

Equipment manufactured, supplied and installed by Continental Sports includes:

  • Sports hall
    • Roof mounted matchplay basketball goals with shot clocks on a competition court
    • Two pairs of roof mounted electrically operated basketball goals at one end and wall mounted at the other end for the practice courts
    • Rebound screens and division nets to separate the hall into a number of different layouts
    • Cricket practice netting
    • An electronic multi-sports scoreboard
  • Dojo
    • Two full 14m x 14m competition areas for judo with Continental's traditional Tatami mats
    • Judo surround to hold the matting in position
    • Portable electronic judo scoreboard
  • Gymnastics training hall
    • Foam filled dismount pit with sunken trampoline
    • Full set of mens and womens artistic apparatus
    • Carbon fibre rod tumble track with dismount to pit
    • Set of playshapes and pvc floor covering for kids-gym
  • Outdoor sports equipment
    • Football goals
