Holiday Hammer December 29th & 30th! 2 Spots Left

Recommended Posts

We have a couple spots open in next years Holiday Hammer on December 29th & 30th 2017. We are located in Abingdon VA 2 minutes off Interstate 81. We are about 2 hours from Knoxville and about 3.5 hours from Chattanooga. In Virginia we are allowed to enter more than one wrestler per wt class so we do allow teams to enter extra or "B"team wrestlers into the tournament. I try to run this tournament as quickly as possible and we will run 4 mats for the finals so we can finish early and get teams on the road home. We weigh-in on the first day noon-1:00pm (by team) to allow teams ample time to travel the morning of the first day. On the second day, we anticipate we will be completely finished by 4:30.


We have teams coming from PA, WV, KY, NC, VA & TN.



We give out Custom Diamond Plated Aluminum Hammers (3 feet tall) to the Champion of each wt class as well as one to the winning coach of the team champions. Be sure to check out the pic of the Hammer. You can search "Holiday Hammer Wrestling Tournament" on Facebook to see them!

Here are a couple tidbits from the 2016 tournament:
