Superb East Anglian Inter-Club Result

Superb East Anglian Inter-Club Result

Bungay Taekwondo club managed a creditable 3rd place in the annual eastern region tournament held in Northamptonshire at the weekend having scored an amazing 45 points from 11 competitors! (3 points for a 1st, 2 points for a 2nd and 1 point for a 3rd placed competitor)  Northampton won this year’s event with Wellingborough coming 2nd.  Both towns are at least 4 times bigger than Bungay!

Storm Dennis nearly put an end to the competition however as there were concerns over travelling the 100 miles but in the end the storm battered other parts of the country far worse than the East so it went ahead as planned.
