Kirsten Pearson took out the Club Administrator Award for Jimboomba Gymnastics Club at the sport's annual awards dinner. Her award comes as the club searches for bigger premises.

Mrs Pearson said she was surprised to take the award at the Pullman in Brisbane.

She is a life member and the club's vice treasurer and membership officer.

Mrs Pearson She became involved with the club when daughter Brooke joined. She took on a webmaster role before joining the committee in 2016.

Brooke is no longer involved with the club, but Mrs Pearson said she was still pleased to donate her time to the cause.

A new database for managing the club made it even easier for the volunteers.

"It's a good system to work with, and it is work I enjoy doing," Mrs Pearson said.

She dedicated her award to the Jimboomba volunteers who she said were vital to the club's success.

"If we didn't work as well, the team and club could not get these awards," she said.

Mrs Pearson almost won the award last year. She finished second.

Jimboomba also won the club promotion and community engagement award in the medium sized category, for generating public interest in the sport and providing evidence of member and customer satisfaction.

The club has gymnasts aged from six months to 80 years old. Head coach Callie Wall said the growth had been off the radar in the past five years.

"We have an over-50s class, and the first one back had 17 members," Mrs Wall said.

"Most classes are already full from people signing up again after last year."

"We have been in talks with council for the past 10 years to get a bigger building."

"Ideally we would like a bigger premises so we can grow more."
