SportsBall was held to raise funds for SportsAid, a charity that helps the next generation of British sports stars by giving them financial support and recognition during the critical early stages of their careers.
Metro Judo, who are based at Thomas Tallis school in Kidbrooke, were asked to create a display in recognition of the great work the club does in producing, top class international players.
The most notable Metro Judo alumnus is Greenwich-born Gemma Gibbons, who won Olympic Silver medal at London 2012.
