COMING IN 2020!
IBSA Visually Impaired Judo Grand Prix
British Judo are delighted to announce that they will host a Visually Impaired Grand Prix in April 2020 at the University of Nottingham’s David Ross Sports Village.
The Grand Prix will be the penultimate event in the IBSA Judo calendar before the 2020 Paralympic Games at the home of judo, Tokyo.
Great Britain has a successful history of staging international visually impaired judo competitions having hosted the 2017 European Championships at the University of Wolverhampton, after successfully staging a Grand Prix in 2016 at the same venue.
The competition will also be followed by a three-day training camp giving some of the world’s best VI judoka the opportunity to train together alongside the university squad on the campus.
With just under 12 months until judo heads “home” to Tokyo, all eyes will be on Nottingham with major qualification points on offer and Paralympic places still very much up for grabs.
