Tot Tastics was set up in Braintree, Essex in October 2003 to deliver gymnastics and movement classes, regardless of sex, ability, gender, class and race. Due to the success of the club we extended classes and expanded to become the TT Club in April 2005 when we moved into our current location in Braintree, Essex.  We provide a personal, educational, safe and inviting club for all ages to participate in at recreational and competitive levels.  From April 2005 we have occupied a full time unit in East Street Braintree, Essex which offers various sporting services including gymnastics, freestyle & trampolining activities are we are constantly looking for new opportunities to offer varied activities. We also now provide various other classes around Essex including, ~Braintree, Felsted, Boreham and are constantly delivering various other classes on a regular basis for schools, groups and individuals at different locations thoughout the county.
