Court Lane players are invited to join Holbrook players in a session presented by Derek and Sarah Hopkins on 29 September.

  • Sarah – 6 x World & European Masters Champion

These are always great sessions, with a great mix of fun and technical elements.

It’s looking like a great Autumn term!

Just picked up the following message from the school,

I’m really sorry to do this but due to sickness we have no-one to cover the let this evening, we are therefore cancelling your Judo session today (Thursday 12 July).

Apologies for the short notice, don’t forget we are still there Tuesday 17th and 24th but no judo Thursday 19th.

Sessions will run from 6-7.30pm on the following dates:

  • Thursday 5th July
  • Tuesday 10th July
  • Thursday 12th July
  • Tuesday 17th July
  • NO SESSION Thursday 19th July – school show
  • Tuesday 24th July – final session of term

Details of any summer training will be announced shortly.

A Thank You …. and a plea

Thank you to those who turned up last night – including a player who is currently on a residential placement – and the parents who brought them.

Sadly it wasn’t enough players to cover the hall hire costs, so we ended up £40 out of pocket last night.

Once again, if you know that you or your child will NOT be attending – please can you give us adequate notice so that we can

  1. Review numbers and make a decision as to whether to run that session or not
  2. Circulate decisions via email to subscribers, and on social media (Facebook and Twitter)

Thank you for your ongoing support.

This worked really well last Thursday, lets have another good session tomorrow!
