Dear Judo Friends,

with great regret we have to inform you, that the Swiss Judo Open – Senior European Judo Cup will not take place on 7th & 8th March 2020.

On 28th February the federal execution of Switzerland declared a special situation according to the law of epidemies (with regard to the evolution of the corona virus) and prohibited any events where more than 1000 people would be present at the same time within Switzerland. Following that announcement we have evaluated the different possibilities to carry out the tournament in a smaller fashion. We however arrived at the conclusion that the development until next weekend is currently not predictable. Both the reactions of foreign delegations and people within Switzerland show that there is great insecurity within the general public. To protect the health of all athletes, volunteers and other people involved has the highest priority for the organisers.

Given the large number of representatives from Italy and other persons with

...

The registration has been closed with 371 athletes coming from 26 different nations inscribed. This large number of participants has caused the EJU to shift the starting times to 9:00 am on both competition days.

We are now in the final preparations and looking forward to welcoming all delegations to a sucessfull judo weekend.

Swiss Judo Open 2017

The Italian team was extraordinarily strong and so it was the national anthem of Italy that was played 8 times this weekend. Moreover, the crowd celebrated a Swiss victory on both days.

On the first day the 18 year old Gioia Vetterli from the host city of Uster was showing off her ne-waza skills to win the category women -63 kg.
