Outdoor training cancelled

Sadly, due to the inclement weather conditions, tonight’s outdoor session has been cancelled.

The forecast doesn’t show it clearing until quite late this evening, with the possibility of thunder and lightning also.

Hopefully we can start next week!

Don’t forget, Paul Vella is still running mat based sessions on Saturday mornings 10.00 – 11.30 at Holbrook Judo Club.
