Waterside Sharks Team





This is the Northern Ireland Closed Championships, so each wrestler must have been born in Ireland or has an Irish parent or have lived in Ireland for at least 2 years and must be affiliated to a registered club.

There is no closing date however a list of entries, giving the name, year of birth and approximate body weight of each wrestler should be forwarded to the Tournament Director prior to the event by club officials.  The list should include a club coach assessment of the individuals standard of ability e.g. Experienced, Developing, or Novice.

Weigh In
Between 10.00 hrs – 11.00 hrs on Saturday 26th September 2009 at the venue

Ages and Weights:
Minis and FUNdamental
Mini wrestlers (under 8 yrs old on the day) and FUNdamental wrestlers (under 12 yrs on the day) will be grouped on the day into categories; there are no formal weight categories for this section of the event. The Competition will be run under the BWA format for non-championship tournaments. All wrestlers will be matched after the weigh-in, to ensure that there is appropriate competition taking into account the following criteria:

  • Actual body weight at the weigh in
  • Age on the day of competition
  • Standard and experience of the wrestler

Wrestlers will then compete against those of similar weight, age (usually confined to a 2 years difference) and wrestling ability to ensure that there is a real and meaningful contest for all those entered.
