On Sunday 19th November we travelled to the 2023 JKS England National Championships in Grantham.
All competitors qualified through previous performances during the course of the year including the recent club championships.
There were some superb performances and whether you got a medal or not, which was very difficult, we are extremely proud of you for putting in the extra effort leading up to the championships and on the day itself.
A massive thank you to Mark Turner, Paul Stanley and Anthony Wilkes for coaching and to Steve Clarke for officiating on the day.
Finally a big thank you to all family members and friends who came along to support the team.
I am so proud to announce that we eventually came away with an amazing 4 Gold, 9 Silver and 9 Bronze medals.
