You are cordially invited to attend the 29th annual Charleston Cup Gymnastics Invitational to be held at the North Charleston Convention Center. Come and enjoy the Southern hospitality in what Conde’ Naste and Travel and Leisure magazines have ranked as the Number 1 place to visit in the US. Please join us as we celebrate our 29th Anniversary Meet. Last year’s Charleston Cup consisted of over 2000 athletes from across the US.
