While the first officially registered governing body of wrestling in Singapore (Singapore Amateur Wrestling Association) can be traced back to 1933, wrestling had ceased to exist locally since 1980. The current National Sports Association, Wrestling Federation of Singapore (WFS) was established as a new and separate entity on 18th December 2008. WFS has been successfully registered as a charity and renewed with Institution of Public Character status since 1st of February 2012.
The Wrestling Federation of Singapore is the sole governing body for the sport concerning areas such as; national competitive representation, affiliation, coaching, talent-scouting, technical officiating as well as education and promotion of the sport to educational institutions, corporations and local communities.
Wrestling was first granted External CCA status by the Ministry of Education in 2009 and currently has students from around the country participating and representing our nation in wrestling as an External Co-Curricular Activity.
Although being one of the youngest nations in one of the oldest sports in the world, WFS strives to produce home grown athletes who have and will continue to achieve success at the international stage, contributing towards our Nation’s sporting achievements.
