Region one would like to congratulate Laurie Cornwell, Matthew Brunger, Luke Dempsey and Jamie McAvoy for earning their places in the elite UK ITF squad. The team will be travelling out to Barcelona later in July to compete in the European championships. With just over three months till the competitors fly out to face off against the top fighters in Europe it is now the time to up training and focus on going for gold.

Training alongside the squad who fell just short of the elite program from region one were Aaron Mather, Jay Gilbert, Gemma O’Connor, and Danny Welland. Region 1 embrace the new pathway and hope these competitors will also focus and become more determined than ever to train hard and set their sight for the podium at Barcelona 2013.

Gurlaine Sidhu and Gav Sidhu who teach their own schools under Region 2 but train with Region 1, will also be competing with the team in Barcelona.

We would like to congratulate all of the competitors that made the elite team from around the country. We hope your training goes to plan and you represent the UK ITF well at the championships.
