Combining divisions: If there is only one entry in a weight or age division, the player will be entered in the next higher weight class. JudoSA may combine divisions in alignment with best principles, to ensure players have a match, taking into account the player's weight, age and skill level to maximise a safe environment. Combined weight divisions do not attract National Selection Points.
Match sequence: The published match sequence is an estimate, players should use this as a guide only and players should arrive well in advance of their forecast fight time. The draw is not final and subject to change without notice.
