The elite young Judoka of Northern Ireland will be descending on the Lisburn Leisureplex this weekend to compete for the title of N.I. Schools Champion!

Over 220 competitors from around the province will be taking part, with contests over 3 mats the action is set to be non-stop!

The event which is kindly sponsored by the South Eastern Regional College is the last major competition before most clubs take a hiatus over the summer.


Ed’s Diner just around the corner from the venue have given us an exclusive offer of kids eat free! Perfect if you work up a hunger for more than just competition!

Or adults can get a FREE starter or dessert.

Terms and Conditions apply and you must show this image or quote “Judo Deal” on the day to get the offer.
