Paris 2024

The countdown is on to the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games this summer.

Make sure the dates are in your diary.

The Path to Paris virtual journey

Get your Taekwondo club involved on The Path to Paris virtual journey.

The 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games will take place in Paris. To mark this occasion, Get Set (the official youth engagement programme from Team GB and ParalympicsGB), is on a mission to get children aged 5-11 and their families more active with their new virtual challenge – Path to Paris. Sports clubs, schools, community groups and families can set up teams for children to take part – and everyone can join in with the fun alongside them, completely for free!

Capri-Sun Free Sports Campaign for 2024

Capri-Sun (owned by Coca-Cola) would like Taekwondo, British Taekwondo, and our clubs to be a part of their upcoming Capri-Sun Free Sports Session Campaign in 2024.

The campaign is being run by a company called the Digital Rewards Group.
