The new judo mat was delivered to leisure centre on Tuesday 23rd after a fantastic effort for Harry in the management of the selection and purchasing process. Harry was also instrumental in securing the funding that enabled the club to purchase the new surface
Tommy, Harry, Bernard and Joe with tremendous assistance from the centre staff quickly got all of the mats into the Dolo and stored on two brand new purpose built trollies.
Last night's session saw the first use of the new mat to everyone's delight. The days of taping ripped mats before a session are gone!
