About Us

Bears Wrestling Club wants to introduce you to wrestling, the oldest and greatest sport in the world. Wrestling develops courage, determination, attitude, strength, and discipline and allows one to have fun.

A great statement was once made stating that Olympic wrestling is nothing quite like the naïve expectation of seeing a John-Cena-like character, and that is indeed true. However, Olympic Wrestling is a well-respected sport and a sport that everyone must at least give a try.

We invite all ages, whether female or male, to come and check out what wrestling is about at Bears Wrestling Club.

We welcome wrestlers and people who want to become involved in coaching, refereeing, managing teams or assisting with the admin.

Bears Wrestling is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 18:00 until 19:30 and takes place in the Vumani Hall at Marks Park Sports Club.
