Hi all

Just a short note to end the year, one which has been hugely successful for JudoScotland.

During that time, our Board has gone from strength to strength and, with the addition of new staff, we’ve never been in a stronger position.

A special mention must go to Judith McCleary and her team. Judith has been truly inspirational and we are absolutely seeing the fruits of her labours. Thank you also to all the volunteers and officials who tirelessly give up their time. Your efforts don’t go unnoticed.

Financially we’ve never been in a better position and as always we are looking for ways to maximise our potential. With this in mind, I’d like to thank the clubs, coaches, members and the wider judo community for their tremendous support during 2023. We absolutely need you all on board on this journey.

During 2023 our membership has steadily grown and we’ve now surpassed our target figure for the year, with membership currently sitting at around 8,500.

It excites me to think about what we can achieve in 2024 if we keep on this trajectory. I hope you all have a very merry Christmas and a happy new year. At JudoScotland, we can’t wait to get started! Let’s smash 2024!
