You’ve run through all your mates (thrice over). Nobody at the local stands a chance, not even the seasoned codgers in high-vis who’ve spent a lifetime lugging bricks and sinking tins. The F45 crew don’t even have the stones to make glancing eye contact with you in broad daylight. Now, it’s time to really test your mettle at the 2022 NSW Armwrestling Championships.

Yes, it’s that time of the year again when “easily one of the biggest events” on the Australian Armwrestling Federation calendar returns. Attracting tougher-than-a-$2-steak operators from all over the state – some even hailing from beyond – it’s set to be a certifiable clash of homegrown titans. Take on the likes of Mario Tambakis, Ryan Scott, Phil Rasmussen, Ryan Bowen, Brett Coutts, Harrison Oakley, Kyle Howarth, David Loncarevic, and more. If you dare.

The divisions for men include Under 80kg, 80-95kg, and Over 95kg while it’s an Open Class affair for women. Both of which feature a double-elimination competition format. A fee of $30 per arm or $50 for both arms is required from competitors, while general admission is completely free. Trophies and prizes available for all involved.

The 2022 NSW Armwrestling Championships is scheduled to go down at Bankstown RSL on July 23rd. Weigh-ins and registration kick off at 11:00 AM; the hostilities shortly thereafter.
