Fancy trying a new sport?

Come and try the Olympic martial art of Judo! It's an exciting and dynamic Japanese martial art focussed on grappling, throwing techniques, pins and submissions. It is an all inclusive sport that has seen many successes for Team GB, winning 8 silver and 12 bronze Olympic medals since 1972. More recently, Team GB players medalled at the Paris Grand Slam 2020, with Gemma Howell winning Bronze in the women's u70kg category, and Sally Conway winning Bronze at the 2019 World Judo Championships in the womens's u70kg category!
