When we reopened following the lifting of restriction on indoor contact sports, we really had no idea who would re-appear. So to see the Club growing this year, with a well attended first time summer season and adults joining us from the September onwards, has been amazing.
The increase in numbers, as well as fantastic support from Window Workshop and grant support from British Judo, has put the Club in the strongest position it has been in for years. Certainly not what we were expecting as we re-opened under the spectre of Covid.
It was great to have Maddi rejoin us on the front desk. Even better to get her back on the mat just before Christmas.
Thank you too to those who have signed up to support us via our two fundraising streams, Easyfundraising and the Portsmouth Lottery – details can be found here.
Whilst like everyone else we are keeping an anxious eye on announcements from Government due to the rise of the Omicron variant, we look forward to seeing everyone back on the tatami in 2022. We will advise if there are any changes to the planned dates.
Wishing you all a fantastic Christmas!
