Wrestling is one of the world’s oldest competitive sports. It’s also a great way to get fit, boost self confidence and meet wonderful people!
The Sydney Silverbacks Wrestling Club (also known as Harbour City Wrestling Club) is a LGBTQI and straight friendly, not-for-profit community sporting club based in Sydney.
Founded in 1993, the club trains in Freestyle wrestling (a style that allows moves above and below the waist), and incorporates moves from Greco-Roman wrestling (a style that allows moves above the waist only).
We run weekly wrestling training nights, beginner workshops, regular intra-club tournaments and participate in national and international competitions, including the Gay Games.
Whatever your age or gender, you’re welcome to join the fun at our Friday night training sessions running from 6:30PM to 8PM, Spectators are also welcome !

Note: wrestlers come in all shapes and sizes, so never think your too small or too big
