What a busy First term we had!! It’s great to see some new faces this year! We are so lucky to have a brand new committee on board! Congratulations to Warren Hart, President, Thomas and Makere Sargent, Secretary’s, Kelly Sargent, Treasurer. As usual we have our head trainer Jeremy Sargent who is supported this year by Chris Sargent, Randall Handcock and the rest of the team when required. Warren and Jeremy have a successful adults class running on Wednesday’s from 7.30pm and we welcome anyone who would like to have a go!

Last term we were fortunate enough to be formally recognised in the South Wairarapa District Council Civic Awards with nominations in three categories and we won the Sporting Category! This term we have once again been named finalists, this time in three categories for the Wairarapa Times Age Sports Awards.

We have some great events coming up soon with our triangular tournament against Tawa and Waikanae on Sunday 26 May at our club in Featherston. If you would like to see our club in action please come and check them out from 10am. Our annual trail bike ride fundraiser is back Sunday 2 June at Yeronga Road, Pirinoa. Gates open at 8am so if you love a muddy ride with amazing views then come on out!!

Our representative team heads away to North Island Championships this year in Otaki, followed by Dunedin and Hamilton for Club Championships and National Championships. This year we look to include some adults in our representative team!

As always we are very grateful to those that have supported us on our journey, Inspire Tiling, Adamson’s Service Station, Jackie Jones at The Professionals, Robert Algie Memorial Trust, Ed Read, Sargent Motorcyles, Sargent Builders, Premiere Bacon, Visual Identity, Scotty’s Meats and South Wairarapa District Council. Please support these businesses when you can.

Featherston Amateur Wrestling Club was proud to support Wairarapa Winter Jackets with our old team jackets. This is a wonderful initiative, created by a Featherston local so please feel free to bring your old jackets to training and we can pass them on or touch base with a drop off point!

If you are interested in having a go at wrestling or have any enquires please check out our Facebook page, email featherstonamateurwrestling@gmail.com or pop down to the club on a Wednesday during term time from 5.30pm.
