It was a long but rewarding day with some very tough categories particularly so as this was the last chance for judoka to get ranking points of the season.

The calendar ended with all of the competition pre cadets / cadets ranked in the top 10 of the country.

Gold went to Jessica Rush and Emily Niven with bronze for Haydn Williams, Hannah Niven, Charlie Bennett and Lewis Fryer.

Coaches Laurie Rush and Pete Brent were pleased with the continued great results from the squad members, saying: “The whole squad medalled with lots of big ippons on show. Keep up the hard work and effort going and the rewards will follow!”
