Placed in the top 10 of the weirdest “sports” and pastimes in 2010, the World Gravy Wrestling Championships will again be held at the Rose ‘n Bowl, in Stacksteads.
Hundreds will gather at the Lancashire venue, on Monday, August 29th, to watch competitors get down and dirty in a pool of gravy. All contestants have to do is defeat their opponents in a two-minute wrestling match in the gravy. Points are scored for fancy dress, comedy effect, entertainment and wrestling ability.
The World Gravy Wrestling Championship, in its fifth year, is a fun event that aims to raise money for East Lancashire Hospice while participants can also raise funds for their own chosen charities. Businesses are encouraged to support the event by sponsoring individuals or bouts.
Last year’s winners, Elliot Rooke, who dressed as a Bunny Girl, and Elisa Samson, who wrestled as Little Bo Peep, will be defending their crowns.
