IFA EUROS 2024

Jaworzno POLAND 13-17 June 2024

PAA joined IFA as the UK member nation. That means that entries can be made from 1st - 31st May via the get in touch button (above right). TYPE "IFA EURO ENTRY" add your name, date of birth, weight class, age class, left, right or both. If you want a team shirt (price will be around 30 euro plus whatever postage to get to you) say what size. If not buying a team shirt you will need to have one of the existing shirts from last euros or worlds etc that has our team name & logo on. 

PAYMENT. PAA has to pay all in one to IFA after entries are submitted on 31st May. If you want to enter after that IFA charge DOUBLE FEES. If we have not confirmed your payment to the PAA before 31st May you won't be on the list. Payment is 40 Euros (£35) per arm per category so if pulling both arms in seniors you will need to pay the PAA £70. You can do this via the PAY YOUR ENTRY FEES button below. "Friends & Family please" else we lose money to PAYPAL & we will bill you for the difference. Mark EURO ENTRY in comments box.

Can you pull for the UK Team?

Yes

- if you have been resident here for more than 5 years (& can prove it), 

- if you commit to pull only for the UK 

(that means you can't pull for any other country)

- obviously you'll have to adhere to the rules that IFA have in place in regard to drug testing, dress code etc. These can be viewed on their site.

No

- if you are are legal resident of UK for more than 5 years but have pulled in another Nationals after pulling for us or in our Nationals.  

- if you have not been legal resident of UK for 5 years.

- if you live in the Republic of Ireland: IFA recognise you as a separate nation & will require you to register as an individual.

Team Kit 

I will be sorting out some team kit soon. We have to wear sports clothing & it has to be identifiable. Don't wear jeans, dress like an accountant or wear shorts. They will turn you away from the table.

Accomodation & Transport:

IFA had a package deal with some hotels - with a deadline for booking which was 1st May. Otherwise make your own arrangements. Look at where the venue is & whether you want to stay within walking distance, take a cab, hire a car or rely on some other transport to get to & from where you are staying. You might be able to book a the hotel where their package was done, but not guaranteed.

QUESTIONS?

Read all the information in the Official IFA INVITATION before asking about details - we will refer you back to the documents if you haven't read it. It is also your responsibility to be familiar with the IFA anti doping regulations & their competition rules which are available to view on their website. 


Use the get in touch button at the top of the page for everything else.
