** Please note that the session planned for 28 November with Danny Murphy has been postponed until 5 December **

Court Lane and Holbrook players in Royan
Court Lane players are once again invited to train with Holbrook Judo Club, on July 4th. The session will be led by David Tooby, with Paul Vella and Kieron Eagles.
All players attending will benefit from training with other players. Additionally, mat fees from this session go towards subsidising travel and gifts for next year’s visit to Royan.
We have agreed with Holbrook JC that priority for non-Holbrook players wishing to travel to Royan next year, will be given to those who have supported these additional sessions.
The session will run from 10 – 12noon at Brune Park School, Military Road, Gosport.
Four of Court Lane’s novice players took part in a competition preparation event hosted by Holbrook Judo Club.
Referee David Tooby explained competition etiquette, such as entering and leaving the area, which belt to wear etc., and the importance of osaekomi and toketa. The scoreboard was also explained.
Players then took part in a round robin match, with explanation of the scores, penalties etc., as they occurred.
Our four players all behaved impeccably, and demonstrated some good judo skills. It was particularly pleasing to see them all developing over the course of their three or four contests.
- Noah Grainger – GOLD
- Alex Lane – GOLD (and quickest ippon throw of the day…)
- Jeremy Allen – BRONZE
- Oliver Jones – BRONZE
Players are invited to attend a training session at Holbrook Judo Club, Brune Park School, Military Road Gosport on the morning of Saturday 28 March.
Session will be led by Derek Hopkins & Sarah Hopkins (Current British European & World Masters Champion).
The sesion will run from 10-12 noon, the County Squad session is being hosted at the same venue in the afternoon.
