The International Sock Wrestling Associated Society – TISWAS

Kat Bands

A society dedicated to fair combat in the global sport of sock wrestling, engaging in matches across the festival.

Some more about TIWAS:

The ancient sport of sock wrestling has been around as long as people have worn socks! In the 8th century BC the Romans began wearing socks made from matted hair/ fur etc these although comfortable would start to smell very quickly after a couple of days. Socks were in short supply in those days and Roman Legionnaires would often attempt to pinch each others socks whilst asleep…hence the battle to retain and remove socks evolved into the Global Phenomenon we all now recognise as ‘Sock Wrestling’.
