New friends made in French twinning events

Coaches and players from Court Lane have participated in recent twinning events with French judo clubs.

In May, Tony, Kev, Craig and Dean (and Brett’s mum!) along with representatives of Holbrook Judo Club, travelled to Royan in the Bordeaux region, for a weekend of Judo, sightseeing and socialising.

We look forward to them visiting us next year.

At the beginning of June, members of Le Havre’s Judo Perrey Guerrier visited the Portsmouth area and were hosted by Holbrook Judo Club.

Members of Portsmouth area judo clubs were invited to join with a training session and friendly competition with the visitors.

13332761_491866707684192_5534276740323114499_nTony, Jonty, Mieszko and Maya represented the club during the morning training session, with Jonty taking part in the afternoon competition.

Hopefully we can visit JPG next year.

  • This will be followed by a competition from 1230 to approximately 1400. We are envisaging some Court Lane players taking part in this – these players have already been approached, based on the grades of the visiting players; however any others who train in the morning may also be considered.

This will enable our visitors to spend some time with their host families on the Saturday afternoon and again on the Sunday, before sailing for home Sunday afternoon.
