The 2013 Scottish Championships were held in Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility, Motherwell on 7th April. 29 Students were in attendance at the event from GMAC, with 318 competitors taking part from 18 schools.
The day started at 9.30am with a welcome speech from Tournament Committee member Mr McIlvaney, who welcomed our Grand Master, Master’s, Instructors, Competitors, Supporters as well as guests from A.C.E. who also entered the competition.
The umpires in attendance worked hard throughout the day to ensure that the event ran smoothly and to time. A big thank you to all who gave up their time to referee.
