The five-day event was awarded to the British Judo Association to host and Walsall will be the location from 25 – 29 September 2019 with over 1,000 athletes expected to compete with categories for pre-cadet, cadet, junior, senior, veteran and visually impaired judoka.
The University of Wolverhampton’s Walsall Campus – which is home to British Judo’s Centre of Excellence – will be the venue and there are high expectations for the event.
Rick Kenney, President of the Commonwealth Judo Association said: “This is the first time that the Commonwealth Judo Championships have been held in England since the first Championships took place in 1986 and I am sure that the British Judo Association will deliver a great event that will be enjoyed by athletes and spectators alike.
"The British Judo Association has organised a number of high quality international competitions in recent years and we look forward to a wide range of Commonwealth judo nations taking part and enjoying the experience and hospitality of Walsall.”
British Judo Chairman Ronnie Saez said: “I think it’s a fantastic opportunity for British judoka to become involved in a top-quality event. Hopefully we’ll put on a fantastic event and leave a legacy for all Home Country judoka to follow.”
