The Tug of War Association runs a new national league. These competitions run on 8 weekends throughout the season at different locations around the country, in order to cater for all teams of all abilities. If you would like to take part in any of these competitions, then e-mail Mick Copper, or visit the fixtures page and contact the event organisers.
Handbooks can also be purchased at a cost of £5
Permits for holding competitions can also be obtained from the secretary at the current cost of £20 per event. Permitted competitions must have qualified TOWA judges in attendance and qualified first aid in attendance.
All Tug of War Association competitions are covered by third party (public liability) insurance provided they have a permit, which applies to the tug of war arena/spectator area only, and not car parking areas/wider venue areas (e.g. where tug of war competitions run under a permit are held at a show, public liability insurance only applies to the tug of war arena and not the whole showground).
The TOWA has associate membership for new/novice clubs. If you are part of a club that does not compete on a regular basis, then your club may apply to the Hon Gen Secretary for associate membership. Associate members pay only a token annual membership fee (currenly £20 per annum). Associate member clubs do not have any voting rights at a TOWA AGM and are not eligible to represent England at international events.
