Calisthenics Universal League (C.U.L) also recognised as “Calisthenics Street League” (C.S.L) is an organisation that hosts calisthenics tournaments which is a form of gymnastics with an element of street expression due to its street origin.
C.U.L has been active since early 2018 with two successful summer competitions (“Kennington Classics”14-man Amateur tournament) which took place on the 14th July 2018, and the (16 -man Battle Royale Semi Pro tournament) which took place on 8th Sept 2018. Both tournaments saw between 100-150 spectators.
Calisthenics competitions are usually judged in a similar way as gymnastics whereby the rules comprise of a grading system for static and dynamic movements, where form, strength and execution score the highest points.
Since the birth of C.U.L, we have seen a rise in both young adults striving to become calisthenics athletes as well as active interest from different community groups enquiring for more events.
