The Little Gym announces nationwide expansion plan

Children's curriculum gymnastics franchise, The Little Gym, has announced its plans to launch three new UK centres this autumn. Planning permission has been granted for a centre in the new Westfield Shopping Centre based in Kensington and Chelsea and one in Harpenden and another in Harrogate.

As part of its nationwide expansion, The Little Gym also plans to open centres in Buckinghamshire, Basingstoke, Guildford, Hampstead, Harrogate, Weybride, Winchester and Windsor.

Head of Franchise Services and Support for The Little Gym Europe Annette Eckhardt comments: 'We're very excited about the opening schedule for the autumn, as we're particularly keen to continue our growth within the capital and surrounding areas. Interest in our gymnastics programme is gaining pace in the UK - it gives youngsters a real head-start in terms of all round confidence and skill sets and we are looking forward to welcoming new members to the new centres later this year.'

Established in the US in 1976, The Little Gym operates in over 300 locations in 19 countries worldwide.
