New Weight Categories at the Welsh Open

New Weight Categories at the Welsh Open

The Welsh Open, now in it’s fourth year has developed into an extremely well attended event. Open to all throughout the UK, this year the Welsh Open Championships will apply the new IWF body weight categories 10 Female and 10 Male. The competition will take place in October and even though the new categories are not in effect until 1st November, the Welsh Open is not considered as an “IWF Event”, The International Federation has nothing against the application of the new body weight categories at these championships.

We are providing everyone with notice of this event early, so that athletes may prepare for the new body weight categories in plenty of time.

This year the Welsh Open will take place at the Sport Wales National Sports Centre, the headquarters for Welsh Sport. Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th October 2018.

Please look out for the entry form which will go live on 1st September.
