In line with Government Statements & HSE Statements, we have currently received no directives to cancel sporting events be they competitions or classes. There is currently no reason for individual Irish Judo Association Clubs & Members to vary their normal Judo classes. The Irish Open 2020 scheduled for the 4th April 2020 in the National Indoor Arena is proceeding at this point in time, we will keep our members up to date should we receive advise from the relevant authorities to postpone or cancel the event in the coming days & weeks.
This is an evolving situation and we are monitoring the progress in conjunction with Sport Ireland & the relevant authorities and we would ask that you inform your members at the earlier possible convenience regarding the contents of this update.
