Girls ready to wrestle at hotel's jelly clash

FORGET WWF wrestling.

Jelly wrestling is where it is at and the Prince of Wales Hotel will tonight showcase why.

That is the message from hotel publican Darren Riley as his establishment prepares for a big night of what he likes to call "sports entertainment".

One of the wrestlers is Mellody Arrowsmith, a bartender at the hotel and a talented gridiron player with the Western Miners in the Ladies Football League.

She said the night was all about "having a bit of fun" and pushing the boundaries.

"It is kind of like gridiron. It gets my aggression out," she said.

"It brings out the other side of me. People don't usually think that I do this kind of stuff, but it brings out the crazy side.

"This is all about promoting the pub and getting more people to come in ... and show everyone that we do fun stuff here."

Mr Riley said he was a expecting a big roll-up for the event, which will feature only girls in the wrestling pool.

"I've had half a dozen girls express interest but then my wife got a text from one of her friends and she is bringing in a couple of her friends as well ... so it should be a really good night," he said.

"When the professional wrestlers did their demonstration recently some of the local girls said they would like to have a go.

"I found that our local girls were far more enthusiastic and entertaining than the professionals so I decided to run it as a competition and offer prizes.

"The girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the guys that were here showing their support were just as enthusiastic."

He said the jelly was safe, biodegradable and environmentally friendly.

Jelly wrestling is taking off in Ipswich with the One Mile Hotel also hosting it on Friday nights.

JELLY WRESTLING

  • Prince of Wales Hotel to host jelly wrestling tonight at 8pm
  • Competitors welcome to enter on the night
  • Only girls will be competing
