Club fees to increase as from 1st May

We hope you are all enjoying your Easter holidays and have made the most of the additional Bank Holidays and the welcome sunshine. 

This brief club update is to let members know about an increase in our session fees that was agreed by the club’s Committee at it last meeting and which come into effect as from 1 May 2015.

This will be the first increase in fees for 5 years and only the second increase in the last 10 years and is in response to the rise in hall hire costs as well as the extended training times of the senior class.

Reminder - Club only closed on the forthcoming Bank Holidays

Dear Club Members,

Just a quick reminder that the club will be open as normal across all classes throughout the Easter school holidays.  We will however be closed on the actual Bank Holidays.  We will therefore be closed on Good Friday and Easter Monday. 

We look forward to seeing you at a session soon.

Club event for World Judo Day a huge success

The club organised a 2-Day Half Term Judo Course to coincide with World Judo Day on Tuesday 28 October.

The course was held at the Greenacre Academy and saw full class of 30 complete beginners from the age of 5 to 12 try judo for the first time ever. The clubs’ Coaches were supported by a handful of existing junior club members who came along to help out and be partners to the beginners. The event was a great success and the youngsters all worked hard throughout the two day event.
