Book your tickets and accommodation for judo awards ceremony

There are just a few weeks left to book your tickets for the 2013 British Judo Awards, taking place on Saturday 16th November.

With a limited number of places still available, at a cost of £55 per person or £500 per table, the BJA is also offering a dinner, bed and breakfast couples package for £199 or a group package (including a table and five rooms – double / twin) for £950.

Attending the dinner and looking for accommodation? Why not enjoy a stay in five star luxury at the Hilton hotel within the grounds of football’s elite St Georges Park, who the British Judo Association have partnered with for special rates for guests and nominees of the award ceremony.

The hotel is nestled in the National Forest and geographically in the center of England. St George’s Park itself is home to all 24 England teams and an inspirational center for coach education. With state-of-the-art conferencing, sport and medical facilities, the park is fast establishing itself as a world-class event and sporting venue attracting teams, athletes and corporate clients from far and wide.

Those attending the event, which takes place on the same day and venue as British Judo’s Annual General Meeting, can enjoy a discount rate of £95 for a double or twin including breakfast. To take advantage of this rate please use the link below:

But you need to hurry as this offer expires on 21 October, when the rooms will be put back on general sale.

Award winners yet to confirm their attendance at the dinner are asked to do so by 25th October, after which time unused tickets will be released for general sale.

Ticket sales end on 31st October so if you are wanting to attend the event you need to book before that date. To reserve your tickets please contact Terri on 01509 631 677 or email
