Court Lane Judo Club recently took delivery of 4 new judo mats kindly donated by SSE as part of their SSE Commonwealth Kits initiative.
The kit funding application was available to all SSE staff providing that their sport was represented at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and Paralympic Games of which SSE was a proud partner and sponsor.
The donation was made possible by the involvement of Simon Bassil, an SSE employee who trains at the Club, as do his children Jonty and Joel.
Club Chairman Tony Brown said, “This has given a welcome boost to our mat maintenance programme, where old mats are replaced by new, and enabled us to increase our mat area to cope with growing numbers, providing improved safety for all Judo players. Thank you SSE.”
