Spartan Grapple Challenge returns for its 7th event following on from its biggest event to date.
Spartan Grapple Challenge has evolved into the South West's biggest grappling event with the number of competitors and the standard rising with every event.
It is perfect for beginners to get experience and for more advanced grapplers to compete and test their skills.
