THE Gymnastics club that helped Team GB Olympic star Beth Tweddle reach the top of her sport is opening its doors to the public.

The Crewe and Nantwich Gymnastics club, where Beth trained as young girl, is taking part in the national Join in Local Sport initiative.

During the weekend of August 18 and 19, the club will be one of more than 3,000 nationwide that will let people come along and find out more about getting involved in sport.

The event aims to capitalise on a surge of interest during the London 2012 Olympics.
