A GROUP of 13 students from Jesters MMA Club in Matlock have taken part in a sponsored sparring event.

They tackled a massive 20 two-minute rounds with a 30-second break, all done in one hour.

Students raised £618 by getting sponsors for the event, which took place in the club on the usual Friday night sparring, from 7pm-8pm. All money raised will be put towards new equipment.

The club would like to thank local businesses

Rohan Aked Slack Stone Reconstruction Ltd and Hall’s fish and chips, Matlock Bath, who also sponsored the event and paid for the medals on the night.

Anyone interested in joining this club, to take part in competitions or simply just for fun and fitness on all levels, is asked to contact head coach Mark Ball on 07825 876177.
