Weight Groups Announcement for the English Seniors on Saturday 24 February

The 10x UWW weight groups will be used in each of Freestyle and Women’s wrestling.  There will be a 2kgs allowance.

There will be one weight check on the morning of the event for all athletes.  Competitors will be asked to nominate their weight class in advance thus reducing the time required to pair.

There will be no Greco Roman or Vets categories at this January competition.  Athletes born in 2000 are permitted to enter provided they have parental approval and a medical certificate.

This is the first competition in the UK under the new UWW rules which came into force on 1st January 2018.  In the latest rules, weigh-in takes place on the morning of the competition. If an athlete fails to make their nominated weight, that athlete is eliminated from the competition. It was decided that, certainly for this first tournament under the new rules, a weight allowance would be sensible.

For competitors travelling some distance, the big advantage is that an overnight stay may be able to be avoided. 

Another advantage for organisers and competitors alike is that the pairing can be done in advance, so that as soon as the weigh-in and drawing of numbers is done, the matches can be posted. It should be possible to start much earlier than when the pairing has had to wait until after the weigh in.

It may mean, though, that if a number of wrestlers fail to make their weight, there could be some early walk-overs
