The club has been established on the base of High Performance Centre, 10 -12 years ago. Government funded HPC lost it's government support and migrated into a "parent's managed" non-profit-elite-gymnastics club. The club remained in it's high performance centre venue, at first heavily subsidised by Gymnastics Victoria, but recently loosing rental subsidy - picking up 1300% rent increase. The club head coach - International level coach Kateryna Logachova - has produced highly competitive gymnasts who have won State, National and International competitions. Prahran RG is the strongest contributor to the State Team in Rhythmic Gymnastics, with at least 1/3 of Victorian Team coming from the club. The club has vast community involvement, participating in various events from festivals to other sports competitions.
