The 2019 Commonwealth Judo Championships will be held in Wolverhampton, the previous edition was in Jaipur, India and the Championships will be hosted in England since the inaugural edition in 1986.

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.”

The entry is now open for the Championships in September.
