Mission Statement

The League of Upper Extremity Wrestling Women of Durham, LLC (LUEWWD), strives to improve opportunities for women and girls in Durham by hosting creative, community-based, theatrical women’s arm wrestling competitions to raise funds for other non-profit organizations that serve the target population.

Description

How it works:

  • 8 contestants find 4 friends to make their entourage
  • They all dress up in a themed costume
  • On the day of the event, the entourage moves through the crowd heckling for 'votes’ (aka. MONEY!) from the audience
  • Contestants arm-wrestle 3 rounds in a tournament style bracket to become the LUEWWD Champion
  • The contestant raising the most money is awarded Madame Moneymaker
  • Judges pick the contestant and entourage with the best costume/character and deem her Durham Diva
  • Contestants who do not win their first match are entered into the Loser’s Bracket to compete for the Queen of the Losers title
  • Most of the time the crowd gets bold and offers money for a chance to arm wrestle contestants, judges, their friends, spouses, etc. Since the point of the event is to raise money we certainly encourage this behavior...but we’re not cheap!
  • All proceeds are donated to local organizations who serve women and girls
