  1. How many in that 54,800 are actually gymnasts training real gymnastics?

    I’m quite sure the vast majority in that figure are actually only babies playing games. “Kindy gym”, “Panda play time”, “Mummy & me” etc.


    1. 54,798 are training “real” gymnastics….there’s a pair of 2 year old twins registered in a “mommy and me” class in Cairns.
