Cheerleading is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK. It is a high energy, team-based sport incorporating gymnastics, acrobatics and dance.

The TEAMBrookes Cheer and Dance Club has been running for 15 seasons.

The various cheerleading and dance teams take on student-athletes of all abilities and experience, with the majority of athletes picking up cheerleading for the first time while at university. 

The 2023 TEAMBrookes Sportswoman of the Year was won by Eleanor Houlbrooke, who competes for Team England in Pom. The club's coaches Sophie Welton and Mashid Fardjpour also won the 2020 Coach of the Year, award.
