Today, Saturday 14th March, British Wrestling has decided to postpone the English Junior Championships scheduled for Saturday 4th April in anticipation of government advice on mass gatherings changing ahead of the event.
British Wrestling is postponing all domestic competitions until it is deemed safe and appropriate to hold competitions again.
The Sports Committee, who are responsible for coordinating the British Wrestling domestic calendar, will be working with the competition organisers of postponed events to assess the possibility of hosting those events later in 2020.
British Wrestling, along with all sports, are in regular contact with the British Olympic Association (BOA), UK Sport and Public Health England regarding the outbreak of Coronavirus (Covid-19) across the world. At this time we are advising that wrestling sessions should still continue. All members are encouraged to follow the government’s advice, found here and continue to maintain good hygiene standards.
At this time all regional and national training sessions are to continue. Clubs are free to make their own decision with regards to running training sessions based on their individual circumstances. The current guidance is that there is no reason to not hold training sessions. However, British Wrestling asks all members who are self-isolating to let their club know so that the club is able to make informed decisions regarding training.
The majority of international camps and competitions have already been cancelled or postponed and we advise you to check with organisers before travelling.
We will continue to monitor the situation ahead of the and provide updates as required.
