Twisters Gymnastics Club is a non-profit society incorporated in June 1977, due to the inspiration of its principal founder Liz Carter, who remained the club administrator for 25 years. The club worked out of school gymnasiums, initially running a recreational program and after 2 years formed a competitive girl's team. A daytime program for pre-schoolers was started at a local community centre. The numbers grew to approximately 250 gymnasts with a number of boys showing an interest in competing.
