OPEN MAT PRACTICES in the Boston, MA area”

In the city of Boston – via the Boston Union Wrestling Club this is the ONLY weekly wrestling workouts/practices happening via this local "STRAIGHT" sports group.  Their practices are advertised in local Boston publications/newspapers as ADULT MEN'S WRESTLING with an emphasis on amateur freestyle and collegiate style wrestling.

Explore basic information about this club via their updated webpage Boston Union Wrestling Club

Their niche is guys who are mostly in their 20’s/30’s who like/want to keep doing wrestling.  About 80% wrestled in high school and/or college and many are very good indeed.

A couple are coaches or assistant coaches for high school programs.  They are gaining an increasing number of college guys in universities like Northeastern that do not have wrestling programs.

Their practices are fairly informal.  After warm-ups, they typically engage in shark bait takedowns, move to top/bottom and out from referee's position, and then have refereed matches.

Anyone, regardless of age, size or experience, is welcome to work out with Boston Union Wrestling Club.

 ****FYI**** These weekly practices are "NOT" affiliated, associated with or run by EAST COAST WRESTLING CLUB. Information is provided here as a courtesy to those interested in finding a local regular wrestling workout space in the Boston area.

To get there easily by the MBTA/subway – take the ORANGE line T to Roxbury Crossing;  at the station exit turn left on Tremont Street.  Walk two short blocks to the first set of lights (Parker St.) and turn left on Parker.   Walk three more blocks and the school will be visible on your right.  Turn right on Alleghany St.  then enter the schoolyard. The unlocked entrance for the wrestling room is on the east (Tremont St.) side of the building.]

Please note/be aware that the Boston Union Wrestling Club works out at a "STRAIGHT" gym open to the general public.

Some of the guys attending wrestled on high school and university teams, while the rest are learning as adults.   The ages range from 22-60, with a entire gambit of weight classes and experience levels from novice to very experienced.

Most of their guys are professionals in their 20’s/30’s but people of any age, gender, weight, and experience level are welcome to join in on their workouts.

See their updated website with the most current information before attending a practice as they added a NEW workout location for Saturdays in April 2007 Boston Union Wrestling Club.



Currently East Coast Wrestling Club "DOES NOT" have its own practice space.

Just an FYI; we have members in all 6 New England states. so accomodating everyone with an easy access practice space might not happen.

ALSO some East Coast members/grapplers do attend the Boston Union practices regularly so they can get in a regular workout PLUS get access to mat time with people of all weight classes.

We are currently searching for a place where this gay wrestling club and amp; its members could work out privately without hassle, prejudice, or any harassment.

If you know of/come across/find a space that is reasonably priced worth looking into contact us and call Marc: at our ECWC club phone info line (401) 467-6737 , OR E-mail him at either: ecwc@juno.com  OR at our 2nd E-mail address ecwc@eastcoastwrestlingclub.org
