Judo club looking to London 2012

The club wants to train athletes to compete at London 2012

A judo club's new charitable status could see it training players to compete in the London 2012 Olympics.

Partners who backed Camberley Judo Club's bid to become a charity included the British Olympic Association, British Judo, and Surrey Heath council.

The club said its new partners would now work with the club to see that it received the "resources and facilities it deserves".

One aim of the charity is to support the development of elite players.

It is also set to boost participation in judo in the Camberley and Surrey Heath areas as well as across the county.

But coach Mark Earle said the emphasis over the next two years would be placed on training players who would be able to compete at London 2012.
