After a fantastic four days of Judo at the 2018 European Veterans Championships, staged at the Emirates Arena, Glasgow it is time for reflection. 

The committed volunteer workforce from JudoScotland deserve huge congratulations and a big thank you for their help and assistance in delivering such a superb event.

These Championships raised and set many standards within Judo-in-Britain, including:

·         the biggest event ever staged by the British Judo Association (BJA);

·         the highest British entry and most British medals won at this event and;

·         an entry only 12 competitors short of the global entry record for this event

The feedback to the event over the last two days has been fantastic, with a number of heartfelt and sincere messages thanking Judo-in-Scotland – both JudoScotland volunteers and staff - for their crucial part in making the event happen and come to life.

Indeed there have been a number of comments highlighting a “fantastic team effort” and the seamless link between JudoScotland and the British Judo Association to deliver a great event.
