As you are probably all aware by now, the Judo competition scheduled for Saturday 20 June as part of this year’s Hampshire & Isle of Wight Games, was cancelled late on Friday afternoon. Here is the official announcement from Lynn Stringer on Hampshire Judo’s Facebook page:
HAMPSHIRE GAMES – JUDO
Just to let you know, we have decided to postpone the Judo event which was due to be held at Fleming Park Eastleigh tomorrow.
Due to the low level of entries we decided that it wasn’t fair on the children to expect them to turn out for a couple of fights each. Paul [Hamilton – Hampshire Chair], Peter [Blakemore – Competition organiser]and I will be at the Hampshire Judo Committee Meeting on Tuesday, and we will find an [sic] suitable time later in the year to hold the event. This will give all the areas time to hold selection trials, and get a team together. I will send out full details once a decision has been made on the new date.
Apologies for the short notice, but hopefully everyone will benefit from the delay and we will have a great day later in the year.
As soon as I have any more information regarding dates, format I will let you all know.
Apologies for any disappointment and inconvenience caused.
