Coleraine Judo Club recently celebrated their first ever Club Awards evening.

Awards were presented to club members based not only upon their medal success but on their attendance and practice of the “Spirit of Judo”. The awards were split into a number of categories based on age and seniority in the Club as detailed in the results below. The evening was made possible by the Club’s winning of the Harry Gregg Bursary which was awarded at the December meeting of Coleraine Sports Council, for which the Club is truly thankful. The presentations were made by Club Chairman and Head Coach Dr Richard Briggs 5th Dan.
