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. 

Following the disappointment of a group-stage exit at the CAF Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year, Milovan Rajevac was dismissed as Ghana coach, with Otto Addo named as his successor on an interim basis. The former midfielder, who won 15 caps for his country as a player, wasted no time in guiding the Black Stars to FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ qualification and, as a reward, will lead them at the tournament.

The UK government will invest around £60 million of underspend from the Birmingham 2022 budget in the West Midlands to enhance the legacy of the brilliant Commonwealth Games hosted earlier this year. The fund will aim to increase access to sport and culture, boost the West Midlands’s reputation as a world-class host for major events and drive inward investment and tourism.
