About us

Park Lane Gymnastics Club was established in Blairgowrie, Johannesburg in 2007 by head coach, Hana Drewe. Hana is from Czech Republic, where she coached gymnastics in the city of Brno before emmigrating to the United Kingdom, where she concentrated on teaching development classes for pre-schooled children. Having lived in South Africa since 1994, Hana has coached gymnastics in Newcastle, East London, Durban and Johannesburg prior establishing Park Lane Gymnastics Club.

Park Lane Gymnastics Club started with 14 children and has grown steadily since, with gymnasts from the club having taken part in competitions from as early as 2008. The Club is affiliated with the South African Gymnastics Federation (SAGF)
