September 18th was another successful day for our tournament team! We had 11 students competing in the UITF English Open, and no one came home empty-handed. We won 27 medals: 9 gold, 10 silver & 8 bronze!
Special congratulations go to Amelia Fowler, who was competing for the first time ever, and went straight in at blue belt level. She put up a determined fight, pushing her opponent all the way; taking it to two draws and only narrowly losing on golden point. Superb!
The fighting spirit of the whole team was fantastic and we're immensely proud. Well done, all!
Our new English Champions include:

Congratulations to everyone who took part in the GTI North West Open on 16th April! Our team won a massive haul of 57 medals: 20 gold, 16 silver & 21 bronze! Well done, team! It was great to see so many students getting involved and rising to the challenge of competition.
Thank you so much to everyone who helped to keep the day running smoothly. We had help with setting up the hall, providing equipment, first aid, officiating, coaching, paperwork, entry fees... We definitely couldn't have done it without such a great team behind us; so thank you very much to all our helpers and volunteers. Special thanks and 'well done' to the chief organiser, Leanne Connolly, for such a successful and enjoyable event. Great job!
