The BWF President further said this initiative is meant to help athletes keep fit after months of inactivity due to the Covid-19 restrictions.

The tournament will also be used to sensitize the nation about the scourge of Gender-Based Violence (GBV).

“Wrestling as a sports does not want to be left behind in fighting the cancerous acts of people abusing one another more especially women and children,” Sharp said.
