Metro Wrestling action shots

We're Baaack!

METRO WRESTLING is New York City's accessible, gay-friendly freestyle wrestling club for adults.

Wrestling practices occur weekly. Practices are sanctioned by The Amateur Athletic Union. (Click here to join). METRO coaches also teach a Beginners' Class for newcomers and those who have not wrestled in a long time every Sunday at convenient Midtown Manhattan locations (See list of practices below).

Please wear flat-soled shoes such as wrestling shoes, or alternately you can go barefoot (just wearing socks could get slippery). Shoes with higher soles could put your ankles at risk. Also as is customary at wrestling practices, street shoes can't be worn on the mats. We clean mats before each practice.

All wrestlers of all levels are welcome at all practices. We have several coaches to work with everyone based on their level (beginners, intermediate and advanced). Join us for dinner afterwards!

Upcoming practices and events:

Please note: Metro will continue to have practice, stay tuned for the schedule for practices and for open mats during the Wrestlefest.

See you on the mats!

METRO athletes compete locally and internationally at Gay Games, Northeast Beach Wrestling Championships, and at tournaments with other affiliated clubs.
