Local judo club kicks off a new year

by Brighton Council

If you’re interested in judo, there are many ways you can check it out at the Bridgewater PCYC this year.

The PCYC is set to host the Tasmanian Judo Champi­onships again this year. The major event will be held on Sunday 2 April, and the club invites anyone interested to come along and watch the athletics.

In action on the day will be people like Bridgwater’s very own Rose Smith. She is a cadet member of the club and up-and-coming coach and referee. She has been training hard through the summer break after a very successful 2022. Last year she won med­als in every event she entered, including the Melbourne International Open and the Australian Judo Champion­ships. This year, her focus is on training harder and honing her skills as she will be facing off against older and stronger competitors.

To support club members like Rose, the Bridgewater PCYC Judo Club runs fundraisers to help members with travel costs to get to competitions during the year. Fundraising events include the club’s very first quiz night held last Octo­ber which was a great success, and a sausage sizzle held in March at Bunnings, Gle­norchy. They also hold the an­nual Bridgewater PCYC Open Competition, where members from all divisions can compete and spectators can watch for a gold coin donation.

The club wish to thank all of their donors and supporters, especially our local commu­nity, club parents, Brighton Council and Bridgewater PCYC who have helped grow the club to what it is today.

Bridgewater PCYC Judo Club classes are up and running for new and existing members who want to have fun and learn the art of judo.
