Tallinn European Open 2023


The Tallinn European Open, formerly known as the World Cup, was established 15 years ago by the Estonian Judo Association and continues to be a top class event. Over the 8th and 9th of July, the capital of Estonia, on the cusp of the Baltic Sea will welcome almost 200 judoka in the Tondiraba Ice Hall.

President of the Estonian Judo Association, Kaido KALJULAID is happy to welcome everyone back to this tournament after a short break,

We are extremely happy to get an opportunity from EJU to organize the Tallinn European Open again. Last time we had the competition in Estonia in 2019 and now we have the opportunity again to host the European Judo community and introduce them to our beautiful country. Of course, this gives our athletes a chance to test themselves in international competition level with the support of home walls and local fans. 

European Open Tallinn helps us to promote our sport and attract attention so that more and more children and their parents become interested in Judo. We hope that all guests will have a wonderful experience and that the competition will give a positive emotion and desire to come back. The fact that EJU has put Tallinn European Open in its calendar for next year makes us especially happy. It is our pleasure to invite all participating and new judoka back to Tallinn on July 6-7, 2024. Sport event palnning is a huge job, but we do it with the greatest pleasure. The experience gained allows us to organize better and better international competitions every year. We hope that this will become a tradition with growing numbers of participants for many years to come. Welcome all to Tallinn Open 2023. 

Follow the draw on the 7th of July at 19:00 local time on JudoTV.com.
