A volunteer-run martial arts club is vying to win two top prizes for its outstanding contribution to judo.

Barnet Judo Club, which meets weekly at a hall in Lyonsdown Road, New Barnet, received the nominations from the British Judo Council (BJC).

The club as a whole was nominated in the ‘outstanding achievement for 2013’ category for becoming the first club from the BJC to achieve Clubmark status – Sport England’s standard for high quality community sports clubs.

The club’s senior coach Simon Mazzullo was also nominated in the ‘outstanding contribution to the BJC in 2013’ category.

He said: “Barnet Judo Club is run on an entirely voluntary basis and a lot of hard work, right across the club, has gone into achieving Sport England’s Clubmark status, so we are delighted these achievements have been recognised by the British Judo Council.”

The awards presentation will take place this coming Saturday at The Belfry golf club in the West Midlands.
