Wrestling is a game of fighting with an opponent according to the rules and regulations of the game. This is the game in which two players enter in a ring i.e. stage in between the room or hall and they both try to wrestle with the other player and try to put each other on the ground by grappling them.
Introduction to wrestling score sheet:
When a wrestling match is played between two players, a score sheet is used to enter the score of the ongoing game and different statistics of the game are entered on this sheet. Usually we refer to the wrestling score sheet as bout sheet. The key purpose of preparing a bout sheet is that if there is any misunderstanding or dispute occurs after the game, it is very easy to take a look on the bout sheet and determine which opponent is right with their argument.
The person who enters the score on the bout sheet is known as the score keeper. If you are a score keeper, you will enter the points on the bout sheet every time the referee calls a point to a player. As a score keeper, the judges will require from this person to make it as easy as possible to circle the winning wrestler back. As there are multiple rounds in each wrestling match, the score keeper will enter points at the end of each round and after the game is finished, he will just add the points to see who the winner is.
Essential abbreviations to understand in order to enter score on the bout sheet:
There are dozens of abbreviations and words that the referee will call during the game and at the end of each round. If you want to keep the score of the opponents on a bout sheet, you need to understand these wrestling terms or else, it would be a lot harder and complicated for you to enter the score of each opponent on the bout sheet. These terms include the T2, which is takedown, R2, which is reversal, E1, which is escape, N1, which is near fall, SW, which is stalling warning, S, which is stalling, TV, which is technical violation, RO, which is ride out, C, which is caution, C1, which is points entered, OT, which is over time, TB, which is tiebreaker, IT, which is injury time and BT which is bleeding time.
Useful tips for creating a wrestling score sheet:
When a score keeper receives the bout sheet, make sure that before the match or wrestling starts, required information is entered on the sheet. This includes the names of the opponents, match type i.e. quarterfinal or final, bout serial number and MAT number. There are different periods in each match of wrestling. On the bout sheet, there is a separate box under the name of each opponent for each period in the game, another box at the end for entering the total score after each round and a separate box to enter the statistics of overtime. As soon you hear the referee call a point or make a hand signal during the game, you should enter the point under the box of the opponent. At the end of the game, you should calculate the total points of each opponent to see who won the game.
