    To be considered, below are two easy ways to enter:
     
    1. Visit "#MatMakeover" and upload a photo or video of your wrestling organization with a caption that describes why your program deserves a #MatMakeover
    2. Post your photo or video on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter with a caption and #MatMakeover 

     

    The contest begins at 12 p.m. CDT on October 10, 2016 and ends at 12 p.m. CDT on October 30, 2016. There will be a voting period from October 31, 2016 to November 8, 2016, where contestants can share their submission and solicit votes. Full details can be found HERE.

This hassle-free feature uses built-in hook and loop connections to join wrestling mat rolls, ensuring no seam separation and providing a “no slip, just grip” surface.
