Welcome to the Pro-Wrestling Society!


Have you ever wanted to be a Professional Wrestler? Or would you like to try something new? Then we are the society for you!

Founded in 2018, the UoG Pro-Wrestling Society is here to deliver weekly professional wrestling training sessions to all the students of the University of Gloucestershire!

We are proudly honored, to be in a partnership with Evolution Wrestling Academy in Gloucester! We aim to develop our roster of talent from the students, put on shows, and become our own promotion! 

Venue Address: Unit 5, Llanthony Industrial Estate, Gloucester.  Postcode: GL2 5HL

(If it is your first time training with us, you will need to fill in the health and safety form when you arrive.)


Training Sessions:

Training sessions are running every Tuesday Evening at Evolution Wrestling Academy from 7:15 pm to 9:15 pm.


NO Prior Wrestling Experience Required!

You will be taught straight from the basics all the way before you’re ready to put on a show and it does not matter about body type you are, the society is open to everyone! Our trainers are extremely friendly and will guide you through anything! 


There is a £65.00 joining fee for the society. However, you will get a FREE TRIAL SESSION! This DOES NOT require the one-off joining fee!


From there you can decide if you would like to continue training with us if you enjoyed your time at the trial session! After that, weekly training sessions cost £9.00 per week. However, if you pay the one-off £65.00 joining fee you get your first training session for FREE and FREE socials as well!
