The African Gymnastics Championships are held under the auspices of the Union of African Gymnastics (UAG). The 12th African Gymnastics Championships, for the disciplines of Artistic and Rhythmic Gymnastics, have been awarded to the South African Gymnastics Federation (SAGF).
These championships are scheduled to take place from 25 March to 04 April 2014 at the University of Pretoria in Tshwane, and will be hosted by the SAGF, together with Algrodex (the Underwriting Sponsor of the event) and the City of Tshwane (the Host City of the event).
With 2014 also being the year of the Youth Olympic Games, the 12th African Gymnastics Championships also serve as the qualification event for these Games.
