Beach Wrestling

The Croatian Wrestling Federation (CWF) in collaboration with the Wrestling Sports Federation of the County of Istria (WSFCI) as the technical organiser is proud to present the Beach Wrestling competition.

It will be held on 3rd, 4th and 5th June at the Fažana beach.

Beach Wrestling is a new wrestling discipline approved by FILA at a congress in 2004.

Beach Wrestling is defined in two different ways; as an entertaining sport aiming at the popularization of wrestling in the society. In this situation the current rules, as well as the age and weight categories, may be adapted, as an official competitive sport.

In this case the current rules must be strictly applied. International tournaments and championships are subject to the same demands as wrestling competitions.
