Judo Youth Games roll into town

THIS weekend the Judo Youth Games comes to Ballymoney!

If you've wondered what Judo was all about and would like to know more, or if you would like to see some top-class competition live, then this Saturday in the Joey Dunlop centre Ballymoney you'll have the chance!

You'll be able to see 120 of Northern Irelands top junior Judoka's take to the mat to throw and pin their way to glory!

In what is a first for Ballymoney, the Northern Ireland Judo Youth Games takes centre stage in the Leisure Centre with the six counties of Northern Ireland being represented by the Judo stars of the future.

In what promises to be captivating action the Youth Games is the pinnacle event for young Judo competitors who train and work hard all year to be involved.

However although the Judo is the main attraction the Causeway Judo Club who are organising the event want to make the games a spectacle and a fun day out for everyone not just the competitors.

Marshall Craig, event organiser for the games said:

"We've added to what is going to be a great sporting event with a few extras that we hope spectators and the local community will come along to and enjoy.

"The Judo on display should be enthralling and we've made the competition a complete event with some stalls and also a bouncy castle as well."

Admission is free to the event which starts at 10.30am and everyone is welcome to come along and watch the action unfold!
