Outdoor training cancelled

Sadly, due to the inclement weather conditions, tonight’s outdoor session has been cancelled.

The forecast doesn’t show it clearing until quite late this evening, with the possibility of thunder and lightning also.

Hopefully we can start next week!

Don’t forget, Paul Vella is still running mat based sessions on Saturday mornings 10.00 – 11.30 at Holbrook Judo Club.

Summer training

We are still waiting to hear from the school if we can put any dates on over the summer, as we did last year.

In the meantime, Paul Vella at Holbrook has secured three Saturday dates which Court Lane players invited to attend:

  • 4 August
  • 11 August
  • 18 August

All dates will run at Brune Park school, from 1000 to 1130.

Please advise Paul if you are planning to attend any of these – and let him know if you then cannot!

Paul has to lay mats and pay hall hire costs, the same as we do, so knowing numbers is important.

Paul can be contacted via Facebook Messenger or email, at judocoachpv @

Judo recommences tomorrow

Judo classes recommence at Court Lane tomorrow, 15 August.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on the mat.

Please note these are Tuesday only sessions, until school reopens in September.

Apologies for the cancellation of last Tuesday’s outdoor session, the weather forecast on the Monday was a lot worse than it turned out to be on the day.
