Monday 19th July 2021 – Contact Judo opens back up for all players age groups

Following the publication of Sport England’s FAQs , we are delighted that all current restrictions on our sport are set to expire on Monday 19th July!

This will allow members of all ages to return to their dojos and participate in contact judo sessions with no restrictions on numbers.

While this is excellent news for our sport, the danger of Covid is still prevalent in our communities. With rising numbers across the country, we would like to express caution when returning to the sport – we are sure that everyone can’t wait to feel the tatami under their feet once again!

Here is a brief overview of the Government’s recent announcement:

  • Full contact judo allowed for adults and under 18’s.
  • No legal restrictions indoors or outdoors for participants or spectator numbers
  • No capacity caps for club sessions or events
  • No travel restrictions
  • Facemasks no longer legal requirements, however, consider face masks in confined spaces
