At the Tug of War Association AGM held recently, Awards of Merit were announced and presented to the recipients. Those people receiving awards were Pete Dyer, Wendy Dyer and Dave Knott. The Award of Merit is the highest honour of the Tug of War Association and is only awarded for long and distinguished service to tug of war. In addition, the TOWA presented one of its newer awards – an “outstanding achievement” award to be presented to people who had made an outstanding contribution to the sport over the previous 12 months. This years recipients were Jonathan Capper and Claire Thwaites. You can read more about why these members were nominated and received their awards by clicking here.
2024 British and Irish Indoor Tug of War Championships Results - 13 and 14 January 2024
The 2024 British and Irish Indoor Tug of War Championships took place over the weekend hosted by the Scottish Tug of War Association at Beith to the south west of Glasgow.
For the first time prior to Covid, England had teams competing at the event, which was a good starting point as this side of tug of war in England has taken longer to recover in terms of participation than the outdoor side of the sport, and after a greater level of participation this year, it was good to see teams and pullers taking part at the British and Irish Championships, which is an important stepping stone for the future.
