Updated IWRF Competition Regulations published

IWRF Member Nations


The updated IWRF Competition Regulations have now been published. They are available from the IWRF web site at the following links:




The documents are as follows:


The Competition and Sanctioning regulations have been revised and updated following a comprehensive review by the IWRF Competitions Committee. This review and update process was approved by the membership at the 2014 IWRF General Assembly. These changes reflect the growth and change in the sport since the original Competition Regulations were published in 2003, and codify several policies and procedures that have already been implemented.


The World Ranking Regulations reproduce the existing World Ranking system from the old Competition Regulations. The Competitions Committee is working on a revised, points-based ranking system with the goal of implementing this in 2018. In the interim, the current system as detailed in the World Ranking Regulations will continue to be used.


Thanks to the members of the IWRF Competitions Committee for their work on this important project.
