Hampshire Closed success for Isla

Two players represented the Club at today’s Hampshire Closed, in Aldershot.

Kaiden Southey delivered his best competition performance to date, beating players graded a whole belt or more higher than him, to reach the 2nd round of pools in his weight.

Isla Savellis-Fry proved that her last competition medal was no fluke, with a totally focussed performance in the girls -63kg. 4 wins out of 5 secured her a silver medal, and an invitation to train with the Hampshire squad – the first Court Lane female player to receive such an invitation.

Well done to both players, great results in our 25th year!

Hampshire squads update

Due to date clashes the following have been rearranged:-

  • Next combined (Juniors & Seniors) session will be at Judo Club Osaka on 25th March 2018, 10 – 12noon (not 11th March as previously publicised).

The reason for this change is the Southern area open championships are being held on 11th March at K2 in Crawley.

  • The April combined (Juniors & Seniors) session will also be at Judo Club Osaka on 29th April 2018, 10 – 1pm (not 8th April as previously publicised).

The reason for this change is the 8th April is in the middle of the Easter break and we would like a full squad attendance for this final session before the intercounties championships on 13th May.

There may be some playoffs required for some weight categories on the 29th April. If you cannot enter the Hampshire County Championships on 4th March, and wish to be considered for the team for the intercounty tournament, please email Tony or Paul outlining why you are not competing and please CONFIRM you will be attending 25th March & 29th April.
