British Schools Judo Championships
12/13 March 2022
7 members of the club attended the British Schools Judo Championships, representing Elizabeth College, The Guernsey Grammar School, Blanchelande College and La Mare De Carteret Primary School, which were held at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield.
It was the largest group that had gone away to this competition, having taken lower numbers in the past, with it being several members first taste of competition on the mainland.
It was a great team building trip as well, going shopping at the Meadowhall, out for group meals, playing bowling, visiting a trampoline park [once the competition was over!] and laser tag. The members and parents/carers that went along all had a great weekend.
All taking part had a great competition, with Sandy Barclay coming away with a Bronze medal in the Boys, Year 9 -73kgs category - the first medal for the club from this competition.
Club Chair/Coach Eddie said that he was immensely proud of the group, having put in the work in the build up to the competition and their best efforts on the mat. He couldn't have asked for more from them and looks forward to the competition again in 2023.
