    I've been doing wrestling just over 3 years and ever since I started uni I haven't really found anyone else into it. Is there anyone on here who has does it and wants to meet up and train etc? (likely people who come from abroad maybe)

    where did you wrestle before? its a shame that there are very very few university wrestling clubs (freestyle greco, olympic). The UK underperforms in freestyle wrestling internationally
    I'd have thought that there must be some students in oxford have had past experience of frestyle wrestling
    If anyone in London wants to start a freestyle wrestling club then let me know

    I'm not at your uni but I did it for a few years as part of my shootfighting/mma regime. I admit it was one of the most fun parts of fighting. I need to get back into it if my shoulder recovers.

    I hope you find a sparring partner as it really is great fun.

    I go to Brookes. And, oddly enough, I used to do professional style rather than Greco, but I always fancied learning the old ways!

    Hi @gurj786,

    There is not currently a society for freestyle wrestling, however, our Student Union accommodates new societies from our students often!

    This is the link to instructions to starting a new society as well: https://www.brookesunion.org.uk/main...-a-new-society. We hope that helps!

    Kind regards,

    Abigail J.
