World Taekwondo Grand Prix 2018 in Manchester

 

 

GB Taekwondo will be hosting the third edition of the World Taekwondo Grand Prix in Manchester this October.

This year’s event is moving back to Taekwondo’s “home” venue – the Regional Arena on the Etihad Campus. This venue has played host to many great Taekwondo events in the past, including the Grand Prix back in 2015.

This world class event will feature the best Olympic Taekwondo athletes in the World including double Olympic Champion Jade Jones and double World Champion Bianca Walkden. It will be a fantastic sporting showcase as athletes strive for qualification to Tokyo in 2020.

The competition itself is held over 3 days, from 19th – 21st October 2018.

There are many exciting volunteering opportunities available before, during and after the Manchester Taekwondo Grand Prix 2018 and potential volunteers are invited to join the Dan Clan!

The Dan Clan is the hoard of volunteers that will make the event the success we know it will be! The name is given from the common Korean term “Dan” which denotes a degree of black belt; the top belt rank you can achieve in Taekwondo.

The Dan Clan will be at the heart of the Manchester Grand Prix by performing a range of roles as well as welcoming people from all over the world.

Taekwondo experience is not necessary for any of the volunteer roles.
