Grappling is a style of wrestling that combines techniques from various sports such as freestyle wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Luta Livre Brasileira, Catch Wrestling, Judo, Sambo, and the goal of the sport is to take down and control the opponent. Grappling, among all modern wrestling styles, is the closest to the ancient Greek wrestling or Pale, which was practiced in the ancient Olympic Games. Grappling is divided into 2 styles: Grappling, where athletes wear shorts and a compression shirt called a rashguard, and Grappling Gi, where athletes wear a kimono.

All matches will be held at the Municipal Indoor Hall G. Galanopoulos, at the 3rd kilometer of the National Road of Isthmos-Loutraki, while athletes will be accommodated in various hotels of the city and at the Sportcamp facilities.
