I’m not a student at Cambridge University. Can I train with your club?
Yes! We are a university and city club, meaning that we have also members who are not students at Cambridge University.
However, you must be over 16 years old.
I don’t have a judogi (ie. the proper judo jacket, trousers, and belt). What should I wear or bring for my first session(s)?
Please just wear comfortable tracksuit bottoms or shorts (without zips or fasteners, if possible), and an old t-shirt or rugby shirt. Please also bring footwear (eg. flip-flops) to wear before stepping onto the mat, and a water bottle. There is a water fountain just outside the studio where we train.
Where should i arrive for the session?
- We usually meet at the entrance to the University Sports Centre in the 10-15 min before the start of the session. The sessions themselves take place in Studio 2, which is to the right of the main entrance, and up the stairs. Changing rooms are to the left of the entrance, on the ground floor. Please don’t hesitate to ask anyone on reception for directions, if you are lost.
- Please note that some sessions in May and June may be at other venues, as the Sports Centre is sometimes used for university exams. Please sign up to our mailing list to receive updates on alternate venues.
Do I need to join the British Judo Association (BJA) before my first session?
No – you are welcome to try the sport for a few sessions before joining. The BJA offers discount memberships for beginners and students. However you will need BJA membership once you start training consistently, More information can be found here: https://www.britishjudo.org.uk/my-judo/membership/membership-packages/.
