On the 17th March the All England Taekwon-Do Association hosted the first league competition of the year in Redhill, Surrey. It was the biggest one so far with 240 competitors. It was a great opportunity for those who have not competed before to learn the ropes in a fun, friendly environment.
Tunbridge Wells did very well, finishing 4th in the medal table. Thanks to Mr Thompson and Mrs Sweeney for refereeing all day and to Donna, Matilda and Amelia for coaching. Next up, Alton 23rd June.

On 25h January Mr Thompson took 3 colour belts from the club to their first ever International competition – the Open Dutch!!! This is an elite level competition where the best in the world are getting ready for the upcoming World Championships.
The girls did not come away with any medals but they gained a ton of experience that will hopefully help them at the PUMA and Holland Cup competitions later this year.
Well done to Donna, Lucy and Jessica – Tunbridge Wells Taekwon-Do’s first competitors to go overseas!
