Harbour City Wrestling Club of Sydney will hold beginners workshops this month.
The workshops will culminate in a tournament at Boxing Works in Darlinghurst.
Club coordinator Barry Webb said the workshops would be held over three days at Sydney University and the club’s home base at Boxing Works.
“The club is fielding a squad to wrestle at the Cologne Gay Games this year, so a tournament was a way to show new wrestlers what to expect in a competition while helping the squad put into practice their knowledge of recent training,” Webb said.
“Cologne will hold a novice event for beginners, although the advice is to enter the open events as well as wrestling is a sport where winning fundamentals can be learned in a couple of months.”
The club has been active in the gay community since the mid-1990s and these workshops are the first for 2010.
