As the end of the year approaches, we take a look back at the successes of our Club throughout 2017. Below is a quick breakdown of what our members got up to throughout the year. Of course, these points do not even get close to demonstrating how hard each and every one of our members have worked. We would like to thank all of you for your ongoing support, effort and passion at the Sobell Judo Club. This year has been truly monumental in the growth of our club. Not only in numbers, but in the quality of judo produced by each and every one of you. Thank you once again.

Next year we celebrate 45 years since our founding and we promise that it will be even bigger and better. Have a superb Christmas and a fantastic new year!
