Notification to all Midland Area Clubs.

It is with regret that the Midland Area has felt compelled to cancel the Commemorative Judo Competition due to take place on 27th November 2021at Walsall Leisure Centre Walsall.

It is proving difficult to confirm the booking date for this event and for us to manage the requirements at the above venue / centre in relation to their COVID safe regulation.

We just don’t have enough volunteers to support what is being asked of us

Many our volunteers are older and been isolating throughout the pandemic and feel that they are unable to commit to the running of the event currently.

In addition, the financial implications of providing a COVID safe event is cost prohibitive and would place an unrealistic charge on the area.

We are pleased that most of our area clubs are starting to make a return to judo after what has seemed to be an eternity of not being able to train and hope that 2022 will see us start to return to normal with delivery of our fantastic competitions.

If anyone is interested in volunteering to help support the running of our competitions, we would love to hear from you
