2018 European Veteran Championships

The 2018 European Veteran Championships are being held at the Emirates Arena over 14-17 June 2018 and you don’t want to miss out on the chance to see some top-class Judo.

This is a major European event with something like 1200 competitors attending across the usual individual categories and a team event on the Sunday.

This competition is a major showcase for British Judo and, more parochially, a number of parents from the club will be competing and it will be great if we could get as many people as possible along to cheer the action.

Day tickets are £5 for adults and £2 for U16 – great value for a day of sporting action!

The action will generally start at 0930 with the finals being held at 1600 on each day except the Sunday (1430).

This is the BJA trailer for the championships:
