What is Arm Wrestling?

Arm wrestling is a strong-man competition between two people, usually men. But, ladies also compete. That settles any hints of arguments about which gender has the strongest arm leverage and whose resistance technique is better.

Two lean and muscle toned brutes sit opposite each other and place one elbow firmly on a table positioned mid-way between them.

When the two arm wrestlers grip the other’s hand, each competitor attempts to force their opponent’s arm down to strike the table and win the match.

Ben went on to comment; “I set up the club to see if there was an interest locally. There’s not actually many arm wrestling clubs in the United Kingdom. The sport is not widely recognised and it is very misunderstood.

We follow the safety rules and regulations of the British Arm Wrestling Federation. We are able to get men and women involved in competitions around Great Britain at novice and professional levels. You could even have a chance of winning trophies and titles throughout the year.”
