Barnsley Gymnastics Club has secured £50,000 in National Lottery funding from Sport England and is using the cashboost to build a foam pit to help gymnasts develop their skills safely.
Sport England has announced £40 million in Olympic legacy funding to extend its 'Inspired Facilities Fund' to 2017.
More than 1,300 local sports projects across the country have now received funding through this pot of money.
Jose Gonzalez, head coach of Barnsley Gymnastics Club Ltd, said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for the club and Barnsley and is an investment in the development of gymnastics in the area. We are looking forward to seeing the results over the next few years."
The club is holding a free taster session on Saturday, August 31, from 2.30pm to 4.30pm, for the local community to celebrate the investment.
Children are invited to the session at the centre, on Carlton Road, and anyone who would like to attend should e-mail Viki on firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
Sport England's chairman Nick Bitel, said: "A year on from the Olympics, this National Lottery investment is helping us deliver a lasting sporting legacy in Barnsley."
The club is one of more than 300 projects across England receiving lottery investment from the fourth round of the Inspired Facilities fund.
