This three-day-long tournament will see over 500 wrestlers competing in 20 weight categories.

Over 500 wrestlers from 26 units will take part in the 2021 edition of the Junior Women and Sub-Junior Girls National Wrestling Championships at the flagship Inspire Institute of Sports facility from March 19-21. JSW Sports, the sports arm of the JSW Group conglomerate, in collaboration with the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) is hosting this event.

The competition will see action in 20 weight categories across the 3 days of competition. Each weight class will award a Gold, a Silver and two Bronze medals.

We are pleased that corporates like JSW are coming forward to host the nationals. The IIS facility is very impressive and professionally run, and this will undoubtedly be a very good experience for all the participating wrestlers,” WFI President Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh said.

Talking about the decision to host the nationals, Manisha Malhotra, Head of Sports Excellence and Scouting at JSW Sports said, “We are confident of providing a world-class competition experience to the girls participating in the competition. The wrestlers here are potential future Olympians and World Champions for the country and we believe it is important for them to have a training and competition environment at par with international standards.”
