WHAT IS GRID?
GRID is the future of team sports. Men and women competing side by side with a variety of specialties and body types working together in the ultimate race-based game of teamwork and strategy.
The sport was introduced in 2014 by the National Pro Grid League with world class athletes competing at the pro level of GRID.
Two teams race head-to-head to complete a series of weightlifting, body-weight, and other athletic elements. The EGL uses two versions of the sport with GRID 6 (6 person teams for anyone) and The EGL Season (14 person teams for higher level players).
Teams are composed of an equal number of male and female players who can be:
- bodyweight specialists
- heavy weight specialists
- generalists who can perform a variety of movements
Players use the strengths that suit them to best contribute to their team.

Race elements are announced by the EGL prior to a match. Races are FAST. Speed is essential to win. This is a high energy, high excitement sport.
