Wrestling has undergone a remarkable transformation in recent years, with females making their mark and shattering stereotypes.
This development not only showcases the empowerment of women but it also offers a striking link to inter faith unity.
Because in a world marked by religious diversity and cultural differences, female wrestlers serve as powerful role models demonstrating that strength, resilience and shared passion can bridge the gaps of faith and belief.
Historically, wrestling was perceived as a male-dominated sport but this narrative has changed dramatically nowadays.
British Wrestling has made a commitment to working with clubs on a grassroots level to aid the shift and bring wrestling to a whole new demographic.
The Legacy Project
The formation in 2022 of The Legacy Project gave coaches and clubs the resources necessary to support and develop female wrestling in many communities across the country.
Delving into these disenfranchised groups allowed British Wrestling to see what we could do to better engage and make the sport more accessible to everyone, particularly those from ethnically diverse backgrounds.
Wrestling has strong ties to both culture and religion for many people from these communities, so projects like ours have created a space for people to connect not only with each other but also with themselves and their identities.
