Changes to weight divisions will be allowed at time of weigh-in. If you are unable to weigh-in at these times please contact the Event Coordinator at [email protected] at least a day prior to the event.

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, to ensure competitors have a match, taking into account the competitors' weight, age and skill level to maximise a safe environment. Combined weight divisions do not attract Nationals Selection Points.

The player must provide documentation prior to the competition to the Event Coordinator at [email protected] and the player must also notify the mat Referee that they have a mouth guard each time they enters the mat to compete.

Note - The published fight 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.

COVID-related impact:
If the event is cancelled due to Covid restrictions in SA or if competitors are unable to attend due to border restrictions, their nomination fees will be refunded.
