BUTF CUP - 2014

This years tournament was held, as usual, at The Hertfordshire Sports Village in Hatfield on 12th July. Chesham fielded a strong team consisting of several new junior members taking part in their first tournament. The proceedings kicked off with the presentations to newly promoted black belts and then the 'Overall Champion' trophies to last years winners who met the required criteria. Only 2 out of a possible 6 trophies were presented for 2013, one of those going to Chesham's own Max Whitley, 12 year old junior black tag. The 3rd year in succession he has won 'junior coloured belt overall champion'.

Students compete in two disciplines at this tournament, patterns and sparring. Seven rings were set up showing the great turnout of black belt officials to help with judging, meaning that the events could be finished by 9pm.  Chesham got its fair share of medals in both. All of the new juniors came away with a trophy each which was a fantastic start to their tournament career.

To all who entered, win or lose,  a massive well done and thank you from Master Whitley.
