Spring 2017 BRAWL announcement coming soon! Stay tuned!
Welcome to the official home of Hudson Valley BRAWL!
Hudson Valley Brawl (Broad’s Regional Arm Wrestling League) is a competitive, theatrical, philanthropic women’s arm wrestling league. We were born out of inspiration, following in the steps of our Charlottesville, Virginia sisters in arms. Our first show in 2009 was welcomed by a crowd of 50 at the Black Swan in Tivoli, New York…and boy have things grown from there!
Our shows are exciting and energetic, bawdy and bizarre. The wrestling is absolutely real. We cajole cash out of the pockets of our audience members in the form of bets on our 8 lady wrestlers. It’s anybody’s game with wrestlers like Princess Slayah, Loco Lucia, Cinder Block, Hot Lips Houlihan, Granny Clamp-It, and Milk-o-Maniac at the table.
Each event benefits a local community organization, those focused on women and girls being some of our favorites. Some of our past beneficiaries include Phillies Bridge Farm to Families, the Grace Smith House, the Breast Feeding Initiative of Ulster County, and Planned Parenthood.
Our mission is empowerment. We empower the women who participate and organize our events, as well as the organizations we raise money for. So COME WITH FISTS FULL OF CASH and prepare yourselves for an outrageously great time.
We hope to see you at our next event!
