The 2019 Commonwealth Judo Championships will take place at the University of Wolverhampton, England, from 25 – 29 September.

The British Judo Association, which also has its Centre of Excellence based at the University’s Walsall campus, won the bidding process for the five-day competition which will feature junior, senior, veteran and visually impaired events.

Judo will become a core sport in the Commonwealth Games from 2022 with that edition of the Games being hosted in Birmingham, England.

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.”

“It promises to be a very big event and we take our obligations very seriously. We prepare scrupulously. We have got a good track record in delivering EJU events over the past 3-4 years and we have a very well-trained volunteer work force, which will help us to put on a championship of the required standard”, Saez promised.
