Where: Phillipsburg High School “Home of The Pit”

Phillipsburg, NJ 08865

The WGC will have a $5000 prize for the winners of the Team Tournament. The weight classes for this competition are 145, 160, 175, 190, and HWT. Teams will be put in a bracket format. If your team wins you advance to the next round to face another team that has won until you have the final 2 teams. Each team will be allowed to enter 8 people in case you want to switch the line-up around or you have an injury. The point system for this tournament is very simple. If your team wins the match by decision, you receive 3 team points. If your team earns a tap out then your team receives 5 team points. Each match will be 7 minutes in length.

There will be individual divisions as well, and the matches won in the team event do not effect the individual divisions and vice versa. Medals will be awarded to the top 3 competitors in each division.

$80 at the door, or $70 if you pre-register by Nov 15. Pre-registration website, and updates coming soon. Email Rick or Ryan for more details.

Gym details: The space at Phillipsburg can hold 5-6 mats. We have complete sound system access and there is a long corridor that can be used by vendors, presenters, sponsors, etc.
