Welcome to the Swiss Judo Open 2021!
The European Judo Cup will hopefully take place on 10th and 11th July 2021 in Winterthur. We are closely monitoring the development of the current pandemic. As the situation is still rather unpredictable, we will try to keep the information on this website current.
About the Swiss Judo Open
The Swiss Judo Open (SJO) is the tournament with the largest number of foreign participants to be held in Switzerland. The SJO has been recognised by the European Judo Union as an official European Judo Cup event since 2015. Each year, there are around 300 athletes from 25 nations competing for medals.
Enhancing judo’s standing in Swiss sports
The SJO offers members of the Swiss Judo & Ju-Jitsu Federation the opportunity to witness top-class international judo in their home country. The event is significant not only for Swiss judo, but also for Swiss sports in general, as it is a window to top-level performances in a sport that does not usually feature prominently on the Swiss sports horizon despite the fact that it is practiced by over 48,000 dedicated athletes in Switzerland.
