It has been an epic last couple of months for judo and in particular, our British athletes! Tremendous success for our Olympic and Paralympic squads have seen more eyes on judo than ever before!
We are therefore today launching our “Tokyo Roadshow” featuring our Olympic athletes* which will see our athletes becoming available to clubs for athletes appearances, Q&As and technical masterclasses.
This opportunity will be open to clubs and/or British Judo Areas and will only be available during September-October so don’t miss out on the opportunity to have a GB Olympian head down to your club/area.
We are currently working with the Paralympic team on their return to the UK to see how we can incorporate the team within the initiative.
There will be a set appearance fee for each athlete in which the club will need to cover as part of the roadshow:
On mat technical delivery, (Evening/weekend daytime) (Max 4 hours)
£500, plus reasonable travel expenses
Photos/Autographs/Q&A (Max 1 hour – No physical Judo delivery)
(Could be in a Club, Business or School environment)
£200, plus reasonable travel expenses.
The athlete will receive 100% of the fee from each appearance
Each athlete will be available on a first-come, first-served basis depending on their availability during September-October. We will try and facilitate as many appearances as possible depending on the athlete’s schedules. We will work alongside each selected club/area to help promote the event and drive media attention to the visits to further engage new audiences for the sport.
* Natalie Powell is not available to take part in the Roadshow due to prior commitments.
