The Sportivate Student Judo project at Bournemouth University (BU) has involved a multitude of partners: the County Sports Partnership, Bournemouth University departments SportBU (sports department) and the School of Tourism, and British Judo. Sportivate funding paid for British Judo club mats, which led to the University offering a previously unavailable sport to their students.
The project has enabled a student to take her coaching qualifcations ensuring the sustability of the project, 75% of registered participants are in the semi or non-sporty categories with 50% of the participants representing ethnic groups other than white.
Word of the success of the project has got into the wider community as SportBU have been received enquiries regarding the club from the wider community, not just from students at BU.
