Court Lane players compete to be best in Hampshire

Action from 2009 Hampshire Open

Action from 2009 Hampshire Open

Court Lane players will be competing this Saturday to prove they are the best in Hampshire, at the annual Hampshire Closed.

Representing the Club this year will be Jack Rogerson and Joel Bassil. Sadly the pressures of exams has stopped some of our other high grade players from competing.

As well as the title of Hampshire Champion and that coveted gold medal, there is also the chance of selection to represent Hampshire in the Southern Area InterCounties tournament.

The tournament will be held at Fleming Park Leisure Centre, in Eastleigh, with the first contests around  10am.

Please come down and cheer on your club mates, entry is free and they would value your support.

Xander and Toby fly flag for Court Lane in Round 3 of Team Championships








Xander Harris and Toby Winfield represented the Club in the third and final round of the Hampshire Junior Team Championships.

Gaps in the team were generously made up by players from Holbrook Judo Club, meaning that we fielded a full team for the first time.

Throughout the whole event, we have given novice players their first experience of competition:

Round 1

  • Xander Harris
  • Sam Boichot
  • Mieszko Polak

Round 2

  • Xander Harris
  • Sam Boichot
  • Joel Bassil

Round 3

  • Xander Harris
  • Toby Winfield

We have struggled to field a full team, as most of our players were in the same weight group! Hopefully next year we can fill more weights and give more players a chance. All the players who have taken part have gained valuable experience and developed as a consequence.

Well done to Holbrook!

Great performances from Court Lane players at Round 2 of Hampshire Team Championships

12801233_10208917630683206_6183626966825701146_nXander, Sam and Joel fought for the club in Round 2 of the team championships today.

Our team was augmented by two players we borrowed from Holbrook.

Xander and Sam produced massively improved performances compared to Round 1, demonstrating the importance of participating in these development events. Joel was in excellent form, winning his first fight with tani otoshi for ippon. He continued his winning streak through the next two rounds, scoring some big wins with a lethal ko uchi gake, which is rapidly becoming a signature move.

Well done everyone, looking forward to continuing our progress in Round 3 in April.

A big thumbs up for SSE!

Club members celebrate delivery of new tatami

Club members celebrate delivery of new tatami

Court Lane Judo Club recently took delivery of 4 new judo mats kindly donated by SSE as part of their SSE Commonwealth Kits initiative.

The kit funding application was available to all SSE staff providing that their sport was represented at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and Paralympic Games of which SSE was a proud partner and sponsor.

The donation was made possible by the involvement of Simon Bassil, an SSE employee who trains at the Club, as do his children Jonty and Joel.

Club Chairman Tony Brown said, “This has given a welcome boost to our mat maintenance programme, where old mats are replaced by new, and enabled us to increase our mat area to cope with growing numbers, providing improved safety for all Judo players. Thank you SSE.”

Joel returns to competition with bronze at South Coast Open

South Coast Open medals
Joel Bassil made his return to competition today with a bronze medal at the -16 South Coast Open in Worthing.

The competition drew players from a wide area, with combatants attending from clubs such as Pinewood and Moberley.

The sole representative of the Club in action, Joel came second in his pool to enter the knock out stages and progress to the semifinal. Joel did well to escape from two hold downs, but sadly couldn’t avoid giving away a decisive score, and had to settle for bronze.
