Mud Wrestling Ground Rules to make sure everyone is having fun, but also keeping safe!

• No Kicking, punching, biting, hair pulling, gouging, head butting, choking etc.

• All participants must remain on their knees - No standing (this prevents injuries from slips and minimizes the impact when being tackled to the ground).

• Always have a nominated mud wrestling referee who can ensure that the mud wrestlers always abide by the rules - The umpire's decision is final. If any participants are being overly rough or any illegal activities, they should be ejected from the wrestling ring.

• No Shoes (shoes can accidentally tear the base of a pool).

• If your opponent shouts 'stop', faints, or is injured in any way then the round ends immediately.

How to play Mud Wrestling Games

Have an unforgettable party with these mud wrestling game ideas.

I have explained 4 different types of mud wrestling games below. Please share your own games and mud experiences with us as we love to hear what our customers are getting up to. 

1. Mud Wrestling 3 Second Pin Rule
The most common way to mud wrestle is using the 3 second pin rule. Contestants begin each round at opposite ends of the pool. When the referee signals the beginning of play, contestants attempt to pin their opponent flat on the base of the pool. Once a player is pinned on their stomach or backs the referee begins a 3 second count. If the player can hold their opponent in that position for the full 3 seconds than they win the round and players reset their positions for round two. Games are usually best of 3 or 5 rounds. In tournaments, the winner would advance to the next stage.

2. Remove Your Opponent's Shirt
This is a hilarious version of Mud Wrestling. Competitors start each round in the usual way. The objective of the game is to be the first person to remove their competitor’s tshirt and throw it out of the pit. You can use the tshirts that the participants are wearing or supply them with tshirts especially for the event. A good way to get the crowd cheering is to supply team tshirts to help spectators decide who to go for. If you are tailgating for example, have team shirts for the two teams playing in the day’s game.

You can also play this style with sweatbands to be removed. Each mud wrestler has a sweat band on their ankles and their opponents have to try to get it off their feet.

3. Find the Object in the Mud Pit
  The find the object game starts with competitors standing outside of the mud pool with their backs turned to the pit. The referee hides a small object such as a coin or small ball somewhere underneath the mud. On the count of three competitors turn around, race to the mud pit and attempt to become the first person to find the object and exit the pool with the object safely in hand.

The great thing about this game is there is no limit to the number of competitors that can play at one time. You can have multiple competitors trying to find one object, or you can play similar to musical chairs in which there is one less object then there are competitors. At the end of each round, the person left without an object is out of the game. One more object gets removed from the pool for the next round and play continues until there is a champion.

4. Tag Team Mud Wrestling
The basic tag team match has two teams of two wrestlers facing off against each other. All standard rules for singles wrestling apply to a team match. However, only one wrestler from each team, called the "legal man" is allowed in the mud pit at a time. All other members of the team wait outside the pool in the team's specified corner.

Points are scored by pinning an opponent to the ground in the same way as described in the three second pin version of the game (the 3 second rule is usually extended to 5 seconds for tag team matches to give pinned contestants a reasonable amount of time to attempt to tag out).

Once a tag is made, the mud wrestler tagging out has a grace period (typically five to ten seconds) to leave the mud pool before risking disqualification. Offensive cooperation from a team member is allowed during this time window and two teammates can be in the ring simultaneously with only one member of an opposing team. The tagged out player must leave the pool within the grace period or risks loosing a point for a disqualification/foul.

The following are standard requisites for making a legal tag:
• Both feet of the wrestler on the outside must be flat on the ground.
• The mud wrestler inside the pool must reach over the side of the pool wall to make a touch. The outside player cannot reach into the pool for the touch. Contact must be made outside the perimeter of the pool.
• Tags are legal as long as the two team members touch.
• The referee has to see and/or hear the contact between the two wrestlers in order for the tag to be legal.

How to Make a Mud Wrestling Ring?

Party GOAT® recommends a two to three ring inflatable pool to give your mud wrestling party a greater chance of lasting the night. If one ring pops on your mud wrestling pool you can still continue. If you are having a huge mud wrestling event you might want to consider a hay bale construction with a sturdy tarp.

For mud wrestlers comfort we always place some sort of padding under the wrestling pool for a bit more protection. 

Instant Mud makes mud wrestling safe and easy! Simply add enough water for the amount of instant mud powder you have purchased and you are good to go.
