Judo restarts this week!

Our regular class programme resumes from tomorrow, Tuesday 7 September.

  • Beginners 18:00 – 19:00
  • Advanced / Adults 19:00 – 20:00

The coronavirus has not gone away, so a few reminders about keeping each other safe.

We are lucky enough to have a large hall, with adequate ventilation. We will be keeping doors/windows open as long as possible to ensure an adequate change of air. Please remember however that Judo is a close contact sport.

We will not be providing jugs of drinking water, please bring your own water bottles.

Parents are welcome to stay and watch, mask wearing and distancing is no longer mandatory but is recommended.

Hand sanitiser is available in the hall.

If you have symptoms associated with Covid, or have tested positive, please isolate in line with Government guidance.

If other people with whom you are in close contact – at home, work, school – have tested positive or are showing signs of Covid, please follow the appropriate guidance. This is likely to vary based on age and vaccination status. Latest guidance can be found online. If in doubt, please do not attend.

The Club has it’s own QR code, displayed on the notice board as you enter the hall. Please check in using the NHS Covid-19 app to enable Track and Trace.

Keeping us all safe as restrictions lift

The lifting of restrictions on 19 July meant that judo could recommence as before. Albeit in a world where Covid is still a real and significant presence.

As announced previously, we are delaying the return of adult judo until September. Junior sessions will continue this week as normal, then with a summer timetable from 24 July.

As a minimum, all players should continue to exercise good hygiene. Hand sanitiser is available in the hall.

Please stay away if you or anyone in your household is exhibiting symptoms associated with Covid, or you have been advised to isolate.

Please bring your own drinks bottles – we will not be supplying water and cups.

Our QR code will remain – we would encourage all players over 16 and parents staying at the Club to scan and register with the NHS Covid app to enable Track and Trace.

Masks are no longer compulsory off the mat.

Summer Judo

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)

Adult judo to recommence in September

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.

Return to adult judo likely to be delayed

John Buchanan Choke

Messages from Government today indicate that it is likely that lifting of final restrictions covering gatherings, sports participation etc. are likely to be delayed following a rise in positive tests, largely linked to the new Delta variant. Reassuringly hospital cases, whilst growing, are not increasing at the same rate, indicating that the vaccine programme is effective (with caveats about number of received doses).

You can read a more detailed analysis here.

It looks as if adult judo judo will be delayed until mid July – and as we are likely to be shut over the school holidays, that effectively means September for us.

We will confirm more detail as soon as we can.

In the meantime, the mantra (vaccinated or not) remains Hands – Face – Space – Fresh Air.

Welcome back after half term

Hope everyone had a good half term break, and enjoyed the sunshine.

If you are training tonight, don’t forget to complete your Covid declaration at https://app.proactivereporting.com/covid19/form/7Tdc1Zb0utBR9ghk (paper copies are also available at the Club).

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).

See you on the mat!
