Wrestling Mats For Home Use
Options for Wrestling Mats for Home
Most homeowners don’t have room for a full-sized regulation wrestling mat. However, when you want to practice at home, there are multiple designs of wrestling mats that are smaller or that have a DIY installation option to simplify the setup process.
At Greatmats, we offer numerous wrestling mats for sale that deliver a safe workout space. You can buy affordable, small mats that are ideal for practice time for a couple of people and that are easy to clean and maintain.
Types and Sizes of Wrestling Mats
Select among three different formats in our wrestling mat options, and you also then have multiple size options within each format.
- Roll Up Wrestling Mats: Roll-out mats range in thickness from 1.25 to 2 inches with a foam base. Sizes include 5x10 mats that you can place side by side for a standard 10x10 layout, a 6-foot width mat with custom cut lengths, and a few options for creating custom sizes.
- Folding Mats: Fold up foam wrestling mats are usually 2 inches in thickness. They have a vinyl cover that connects multiple segments. You then can fold the segments onto each other for a thicker design or for storage. When laid out flat, you typically can select among mats of 4x8, 4x10, and 5x10 feet.
- Puzzle Mats: One popular home wrestling mat option is a puzzle edge style mat. These 1.5 inch thick mats are usually available in sizes of 2x2 feet for BJJ and 1x1 meter for grappling and MMA. The puzzle edges pop together easily for a DIY installation.
Wrestling Mats for Home Use
Before selecting a product for use at home, make sure it will fit the area you have available. In a standard 10x10 foot room, for example, you could select our roll-out home wrestling MMA mats, where you can use two 5x10-foot mats to create a final 10x10 size.
Puzzle style mats are a great choice for a non-standard practice area, as you can just connect as many mats as you want to cover whatever space is available.
