Nelson Wrestling Club - Updates

Posted on: 13 October 2016

It has been a busy time for Nelson Wrestling Club over the past 4 weeks with 2 competitions and a visit from the local newspaper to record and interview with coaches Lawrence Carson and Mubashar Arshad and a new website that has gone live.

We competed in our regular inter-club competition versus Sharples Wrestling Club at the end of September with 24 Nelson Wrestlers going down - a great turnout and lots of exciting bouts! This was followed a week later with 9 entrants into the Derbyshire Open. It was tough going against some of the more established clubs, but we still managed 4 medals including a Gold Medal for Muhammad Hyder Husayn in the 19kg category. In between all that we had the Nelson leader visit our club to record some footage as well as watching some demonstration  of wrestlers and coaches in action. 

Our sessions are going strong with classes on Monday, Wednesday and Friday Evenings suitable for ages4+. We have also launched an independant mobile friendly wrestling website which will be updated with all our results and sessions -
