Players will be put into pools of 3, 4, 5 or 6 based upon their age, grade & weight with the aim to create meaningful contests and as many as possible. We want our participants to gain as much mat time as possible so coach’s input as to the level of their individual players is important when creating the pools. As tournament organiser and with the agreement of the players & their coaches we reserve the right to mix the categories where necessary to provide our participants with meaningful contests.
This festival aims to provide young / inexperienced players with a positive experience of competitive judo.
