Seven teams were entered last weekend at the University of Bath, including 2 squads and 5 group stunts.

The squads performed 2min 30sec routines consisting of stunting, tumbling and dancing. The first was a mixed squad competing at Coed Level 3, with 11 guys and 21 girls. The second was a 31-strong all girl squad competing at Level 2. The group stunts were 1min 30 sec each of purely stunting routines, competing in both Coed and All Girl levels.

Watch the Coed Level 3 and All Girl squads and feel totally physically incompetent as their gravity-defying stunts put your once-a-month stretching routine to shame:
