Fancy trying a new sport?
Come and try the Olympic martial art of Judo! It's an exciting and dynamic Japanese martial art focussed on grappling, throwing techniques, pins and submissions. It is an all inclusive sport that has seen many successes for Team GB, winning 8 silver and 12 bronze Olympic medals since 1972. More recently, Team GB players medalled at the Paris Grand Slam 2020, with Gemma Howell winning Bronze in the women's u70kg category, and Sally Conway winning Bronze at the 2019 World Judo Championships in the womens's u70kg category!

Additional Cost of Sport Ranges
The additional cost of sport project, which was created by the Students’ Union, alongside uea+sport, is designed to give prospective members information on the range of costs they may face in joining their chosen sport.
This range should be taken as guidance. For compulsory costs, this price includes uea+sport membership which is £55, and you only need to pay once to join all of our clubs.
When considering additional costs, some clubs may have none and others may have further costs. This is often dependent on the level of competitiveness for the sport you get involved in, and so recreational or socially playing may be cheaper. You may also have equipment which can be used between multiple sports, for example shoes or gum shields.
For any questions, please ask the sport club for specific further information, or email@example.com for further information on the project.
