Boys Entertain Girls

This week it was the boys turn to entertain the girls with an evening of Cornish Wrestling. Members were given an informative talk whereby Champion Cornish Wrestler Gerry Cawley gave an overview of the rules and objective of the game. He explained that the wrestlers wear tough jackets to enable them to gain a better grip on their opponent, and that all holds must be taken upon the other wrestlers jacket. Grabbing of the wrists or fingers as well as any holding below the waist is forbidden!

Following this talk, the experts gave a demonstration and the club members were able to participate in some Cornish Wrestling movements. The fun and interactive evening definitely entertained everyone. Many thanks to Gerry and his helpers.
