Backyard Wrestling is a form of amateur wrestling that is not associated with any athletic commissions. It grew from some friends getting together in their backyard and having wrestling matches; hence the name. Some Backyard Wrestling federations are quite large while others are still just some friends getting together. Keep in mind that some federations may have risky practices, but any physical activity can be risky without the proper precautions and training.
Following these guidelines will help get your site listed as quickly as possible.

1. Submit sites for federations only. Submit "link" or "resource" sites to Sports:Wrestling:Backyard_Wrestling:Resources.

2. Please include the location of your federation at the end of your description in the following format: [City, State Country] (Or whatever is appropriate for your area.)

3. Sites for individual wrestlers will not be accepted in this category.

This category is for all sites related to professional wrestling, with the exception of Shopping sites which should be submitted to Shopping: Sports: Pro_Wrestling. (Or sites which fall under the Adult guidelines.)
Please discuss changes to these submission guidelines in the Sports forum.

Tips on Creating a Good Description

In other words, if you want us to use the description you submit it needs to be accurate and within guidelines.

  • Try to describe your site in the style of the sites already listed in the category.
  • The title should be what you have in the title of the document, or perhaps the name of your company or organization.
  • Do not type in all caps.
  • Do not include a list of keywords. Try to use full sentences.
  • Do not write a sales pitch. E.g. "The best site in the world for everything you ever wanted to know about anything and everything."
  • Do not include HTML, it will not work and may mess up your submission to the point it is rejected.
