Nick Hall
I have always armwrestled at school and at young farmers club. I was walking past my local pub (Rose & Bowl) and saw a poster for Neil Pickup’s armwrestling competition the following week. Sometime in 1996 I entered this competition along with a few mates and won my <90kg class. Neil approached me and said he saw good genetics for the sport and invited me to train with his club. Me and my younger brother started training with his club (NAWF) shortly after.

Training at that time with Neil Pickup, Chris Andrews, Mick Fielding amongst others. Took me a long time and a lot of hard work to learn toproll and hook pulling. I would like to thank all this who helped me along the way. I met Chris Murphy and Tony Greenwood and we started training in at our farm – cold nights in the barn, climbing scaffold bars and hours of wrestling,

I started Rossendale Armwrestling in 2003 – a club that has grown from 4 members to 12 since then. The club has had 10 British Champions (so far)We have trained in my dedicated training room with my equipment and now train at the local gym now the club has grown. My ultimate achievement was going to World Championships in Finland in 2000 and taking a pin off an American in the hook as a novice.

Won lots of trophies, too many to mention. My next achievement was then 2001 British novice champ followed by no.3 in Belgium International championships 2001 British pro right arm champ 2002. Also been to 5 world championships placed in 10th place twice.

I am currently trying to grow the club steadily whilst devoting an equal amount of time to my own development, getting my left back upto full strength after I cut a finger off my left hand in 2006! I would like to thank all my club members for the support whilst I had my accident. I would like to extend this thank you to Paul ‘Mighty’ Maiden and Julian Cini for the endless conversations and inspiration that prevented me from retiring.
