Beat the Streets is excited to announce the 2020 Cliff Keen Gotham City Girls Open will be held at The Post BK in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY on April 10-11th, 2020.  This two-day freestyle competition will feature both middle and high school divisions.    

This is the 7th Annual Gotham City Open. Over the years, Gotham has evolved in size and stature.  Gotham is now (arguably) the largest all girls wrestling tournament outside of any USA Wrestling National event.  Participants travel from not just across the US, but from around the world each year to compete.  In 2019, Gotham City featured over 550 athletes from 25 states, Canada, Japan, and France.

This year, the tournament structure will change to a two-day format with all divisions wrestling to the quarterfinals on Friday, April 10th with wrestle backs and all medal matches taking place on Saturday, April 11th.
