Vogue athletes are set to take on the world of cheerleading after the opening of their new training base in Newmarket





Youngsters from Vogue Athletics Cheerleading will be hitting the ground running after last Sunday's grand opening at their new HQ in Newmarket.

Director Michael Cave said there were already 11 teams set to perform in competitions in the forthcoming year.

Two preparatory teams will train for four events, a novice team of three to six year olds will take part in events which are non-competitive but where their performances are rated by judges, and eight elite teams of six to 11 year olds who have been in training since they were pre-school age.

“Then there will be our flagship international team,” said Michael. “They will be trying to win an invitation or a 'bid' as it is called in cheerleading, to take part in the World Championships at Easter 2025.”

And although the USA is years ahead of other nations, Michael said his cheerleaders were ready to push forward. ”We'll be hitting the ground running,” he added.

The gym, at Unit 4 on the Minton Enterprise Park in Oaks Drive, boasts state-of-the-art equipment and facilities and Michael said he was grateful to local firms Travis Perkins, Wickes, Howdens, Encon Insulation, Newmarket Paint Co, Newmarket Building products and Barham Flooring for their generosity.
