The University of Wolverhampton has launched a brand-new judo programme to encourage students to rediscover the sport at the state-of-the-art British Judo Centre of Excellence, based at its Walsall Campus.

Judo is an Olympic sport and has a broad competition base from social participation through to the elite. Since British Judo relocated its Head Office to the University’s Walsall Campus, their long-standing relationship has continued to thrive with the University hosting BUCS Judo Championships and students competing in worldwide competitions.
