Lincoln wrestler applies to open new training facility

Pro-wrestling, fitness and personal training by ‘Dutch’

A Lincoln wrestler is hoping to open a new pro training facility in the city.

Hayden Loeve has submitted an application to change the use of an industrial unit on Wainer Close so that he can run pro-wrestling, fitness and personal training from the site.

Hayden, better known as ‘Dutch’ to his wrestling fans, has previously organised a number of charity events, including the Dee Mansell Charity Memorial Cup which raised thousands for charity.

He created the Lincoln Fight Factory Wrestling group in September 2013.

Hayden and his mum Dee, who inspired the Dee Mansell Charity Memorial Cup after she passed away following a four-year battle with cancer.

In documents before City of Lincoln Council, Mr Loeve states he would open the facility from 7pm in the evening and 11am at the weekends for group sessions.

During the day the business will hold wrestling fitness and development sessions for two clients maximum plus the coach.

A mezzanine within the unit would be used for changing and an office for admin, while the ground floor space would hold the wrestling ring and fitness equipment.

Pre-planning advice within the documents said: “The proposal would not be detrimental to the overall viability of the employment provision and business allocation within the area.”
