TVS Women Sport Classics

TVS launches a site for classic women sports videos.

Can’t wait for the June 29th return of Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin and the other “Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling” in the second season of Netflix’s 1980s-era GLOW?

How about Beverly Shane and Bonnie Steel taking on Barbara Owens and the Masked Beauty in a classic tag team match?

The video above is part of the TVS Women Sport channel, which just launched at tvswomensport.com.

TVS, which spent decades as a syndicator of sports programming, has dug into its archives for the channel. In addition to original unedited footage like the wrestling match, the site also includes some newly produced music video compilations of arm wrestling and bowling.

Here’s the current content of TVS Women Sport, according to an audit by The Savvy Screener: six videos of LPGA golf, four each of wrestling and arm wrestling, two each of pro volleyball and college basketball, and several infomercials and other ads. TVS also plans to include tennis, roller derby, power lifting, ice skating and figure skating on the site. The boxing image atop this article is from the Women Sport home page, so we’d suggest adding that sport as well.

Here’s an episode of Bowlerama, one of the new compilation videos:
