“Flipping” Excited for Gymnastics

Foley Sports Tourism (FST) is “flipping” excited to host Flip City’s “Family Fun Meet” at the Foley Event Center March 9.

Meet Director, Lisa Mears, explained the “Family Fun Meet” will be one to check out because it will feature female gymnasts at all-skill levels between the ages of 4 and 18. Plus, being able to host the event all under one roof, will allow different groups to compete.

“As a local gymnastics academy we’re excited to be able to host gymnasts from around Alabama and from as far as Tennessee in our hometown,” Mears said. “It’s a great chance to see beginner competitive gymnastics, all the way to the upper levels.”

Foley Event Center Building Manager, Jeff Ryan, said the diversity of gymnasts is something the staff likes to see because it offers a chance to tout everything Foley has to offer.

“Different people gravitate to different experiences,” Ryan said. “When you have so many different people at one event, it challenges us as a staff to find the perfect recommendation of where to eat or what to do in Foley when they leave the event. We really enjoy the opportunity to share all the city has to offer.”

The Flip City Family Fun Meet will start at 8 a.m. on Saturday, March 9. The public is invited to attend and there will be a $7 charge for admission.
