Ashington SKC News Article


After more than 15 months away, we are pleased to announce we are finally returning to our regular venue of Ashington Leisure Centre on Thursday 24th June! We would like to thank North Seaton Community Centre for being so welcoming and flexible with us over the last nine months we have been using their hall.

While we were hoping for this to be a return to normal training without the need to pre-book, unfortunately due to the next stage of the roadmap out of lockdown being delayed, we are having to keep the current measures of pre-booking and multiple training slots in place.

Both the Thursday class and the Saturday class will take place at Ashington Leisure Centre. The senior grades will train in the downstairs studio with Sensei Jill while the junior grades will train in the badminton courts with Sensei Trish.

The usual booking arrangement will continue while we are under the current restrictions. Bookings for all classes are to Sensei Trish via text or WhatsApp to 07801503179. Spaces for all classes are restricted. Requests for specific time slots will be accommodated where possible.

PLEASE NOTE the difference in times between the junior classes and senior classes on Saturdays - the junior classes on Saturdays must start promptly as there is another group following us so we must finish on time. Please ensure you arrive on time for a prompt start.Any juniors who have a family member training in the senior hall may come and wait in the studio once the junior class is finished to wait for the senior class to finish.


THURSDAYS (juniors in badminton courts/seniors in studio)

SATURDAYS (juniors - badminton courts)
It is very important both of these classes start promptly on time!

SATURDAYS (seniors - studio)

Please wear your full gi for all classes. Trainers are optional, but if you wish to train in shoes please make sure you bring a clean pair to the dojo.

This timetable will begin on Thursday 24th June and will continue until the restrictions hopefully ease on 19th July and we can return to training without the need to pre-book.
