With a challenging 2020/2021 years New Zealand Wrestling is looking for a ‘new normal’ with the national calendar looking full of new and old tournaments!

Featherston Amateur Wrestling Club is proud to announce its hosting of the 2022 New Zealand Secondary School Championships in the long weekend of 25 June.  

This will be the first time in many years the club has hosted a national tournament.  Keep an eye out for more information.  Last year Wairarapa had representation from Rathkeale College with medals won by all competitors.  This year we are hoping to have representation from more colleges to really put Wairarapa and Wrestling on the map!
