Following the government’s announcement this afternoon, British Wrestling is encouraging all clubs to cancel training sessions until further notice in line with advice to stop non-essential travel and contact with others.
Given the nature of wrestling, it is clear that training without physical contact is very challenging which is why we are making the recommendation to all clubs. Leading the way, the British Talent squad sessions this weekend will be cancelled and all further national and regional sessions will be cancelled until advice from government changes.
In addition, we are taking the step to postpone planned coaching courses to enable social distancing advice to be followed. Anyone booked on a course will be offered a place on a future course at the appropriate time.
We remain in contact with the appropriate authorities with regard to measures to support the community to deal with the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. Please continue to follow advice from the government which can be found here and the NHS. Please look out for older relatives and friends and above all please keep safe.
We will continue to monitor the situation ahead and provide updates as required.
