We have both adult and child size suits and a unique Japanese themed padded sumo mat which was specially designed for us.

You can hire the sumo suits with either a flat or padded mat, with the hire supervised or unsupervised. All suits also come with protective padded head gear and padded neck braces so they are very safe to wrestle in, although it’s not so easy to stand up when you fall over!

The sets can be used indoor or out as long as it’s dry and there’s enough space around the edge for safety.

Hire us for a children’s party or a Cub / Scout evening and we may also be able to supply a ‘gyoji’ (sumo referee) with appropriate costume and props.

We are flexible about what we can provide and hire rates will depend on your specific requirements. All adults involved are members of the Scout Association and have full enhanced DBS (CRB) clearance.

We are covered by £5 million Public Liability Insurance and full safety instructions will be issued as a condition of hire.

Delivery outside the local area will attract a surcharge sufficient to cover additional costs incurred but this will be discussed and agreed before any booking is confirmed.

This looks like so much fun!

Why Sumo?

Simply Sumo was created as a fun way to fundraise for some local Chingford scouts to attend the 2015 World Scout Jamboree in Japan. That trip was an amazing adventure and running the sumo provided so many laughs that we decided to continue! Now all Simply Sumo’s profits go towards the next World Scout Jamboree in 2019 in the USA.

The most wonderful thing about doing this is that the first thing anyone, child or adult, does when they put on one of our suits… is giggle. And that’s so infectious!

Our Unique Sumo Mat

We’re particularly proud of our really cool Japanese themed sumo mat which was specially designed for us by Paul Hanna of the Entsstore.

The colours and the peace crane logo are those of the UK Contingent to the World Scout Jamboree held in Japan in 2015.

The kanji character in the centre is ‘Wa’ meaning ‘harmony, unity, friendship and peace’ which was the central theme of the international event. It also represents Japan or Japanese.
