Darren Haynes

Began his judo life at a relatively young age and trained at Poole Bay along with Kit in the early 1990's.

Competed and medaled in many competitons both home and abroad representing, club, county and area at high level tournements.

Was amongst the first group of Poole Bay Juniors to move into senior judo and gain their black belts. 

In recent years Darren could be found training at Ringwood Judo club in Hampshire, and was still active on the competiton circuit, winning Gold medals at various events around the area. He has gained his refereeing qualifications and officates at events throughout the western and southern areas.

In 2014 joined the coaching team at Poole Judo Centre and since 2016 has become 1 of the 3 dedicated club coaches. 

"Darren is a very much respected, valued and loved person within the club, and has so much judo knowledge to share. We as a club are very lucky to have him on our team." - Kit Thorrington, Club Chairman.
