Since 2012 we organise a monthly open training session on Sunday. Starting this year, there will be an open Thursday practice once every four months instead of an open Sunday practice. This practice is free to attend for all (rest)members and donors. We also invite all sister student gymnastics associations and externals. These practices are from 19.00h till 21.00h (unless otherwise indicated) in the gymnasium at Sportcomplex Nieuw-Welgelegen at the Grebbeberglaan 1 in Utrecht. Because this is a distinct practice with lots of externals, it is a little less organised than our regular practices. Our coaches will still be present to help you, but you are free to choose your own training plan.

Below are the dates of the open training sessions for this season:

  • Sunday, September 11, 2022
  • Sunday, October 16, 2022

U-turn also organises training sessions during summer break. Feel free to send an e-mail to for more information! The dates for this will appear on the ‘trial training’ page during the year.


Because there is a maximum amount of people allowed to train in the gymnasium at once, it is essential to register timely for every open practice. This goes for externals, but also for donors. A registration form will be shared via WhatsApp and e-mail. If you don’t have access to the registration form, please send an e-mail to The training costs €7.50 euros for externals. 


You can also purchase a ‘strippenkaart’ for our open practices. With this, you can attend 5 open practices for €30, which means you attend 1 practice for free! Even in possession of a ‘strippenkaart’, you do have to register timely for every open practice and unsubscribe by email when you are unable to go. The ‘strippenkaart’ is a digital subscription and you can order it in the registration form for open training sessions.
