We are delighted to announce that this summer, for the first time in many years, judo will continue over the school break.
Saturday morning classes will run from 24th July to 28th August. Classes will be scheduled from 10.00 to 11.15, and will be available to all players, regardless of which session they normally attend on a Tuesday or Thursday. Normal mat fees will apply.
PLEASE support this initiative, we have been desperately keen to re-secure summer sessions for a long time.
Our final Thursday evening session will be Thursday 22 July, with our autumn timetable recommencing from Tuesday 7 September (school will still be shut on Tuesday 31 August, Thursday 2 September is an inset day)
The latest lifting of restrictions indicates that adult judo can recommence from 19 July, although we are still awaiting full guidance from DCMS via British Judo.
With school closing on Friday 23 July, we have decided to hold off restarting adult classes until we make a full return to judo after the summer holidays, in September.
With concern also being expressed about the rapid increases in cases linked to the Delta variant (and a slower but definite rise in hospital admissions) this will give a much clearer idea as to what precautions we may need to make to keep judo as Covid-safe as possible.
We hope to have some exciting news about summer judo for -18s shortly.
Everyone aged 16+ who is remaining at the Club is also required to leave contact details for Track and Trace – this can be on paper but is easier for us to manage if you simply scan the Club’s QR code using the Covid-19 app.
Thursday sessions will also resume from this week (Thursday 10th).
We are delighted to announce that we have recently secured a sponsorship deal with leading double glazing firm Window Workshop Hampshire.
Based in Waterlooville, the family run business offers all types of double glazing installations and solid conservatory roofs across Hampshire, West Sussex and Surrey. Also providing double glazing repairs (right down to adding a cat flap), Window Workshop is your one stop shop for all your double glazing needs.
The sponsorship deal offers the club a much sounder financial base than we have enjoyed for some time, and allied to our other fundraising efforts means that we can approach our post-pandemic recovery with increased confidence.
We are very grateful to Steve and Lisa at Window Workshop for making this commitment to us, and look forward to working with them.
