Why be a member of the PAA UK & IRELAND?
The PAA organises its own events throughout the year & helps promote other armwrestling competitions. We're non profit making which means we invest anything we make to further Armwrestling in line with our constitutional aims & objectives. It's run on volunteers & goodwill & there are costs to make it all happen. Some people only wish to armwrestle & are not interested in joining the association - attending a PAA event requires an entry fee & for this you are considered a day member. If you wish to contribute more, an associate membership gives a discount at the Novice & Pro nationals & entry into the members draw. The winner of this draw will get free entry into all PAA UK & IRELAND regional & National tournaments in 2024. Currently there are 4 regional tournaments planned.
2023 tournament fees will be £40. There is no extra fee to enter an extra weight class - so if you can make it there & are under the weight category pull as many times as you want. Obviously the nationals are to determine the champions of each class so unless you are also in the Masters 50+, you have to choose which class you are in if you would normally pull in classes above as well as your own weight category.
Those paying a membership fee get tournament entry for £25, so a novice road warrior attending all four regionals & both novice & pro nationals will pay
£150 for all the entries instead of £240.
Associate membership is £30. You're in the draw for free 2024 entry to all PAA events & get £15 off each tournament entry fee. (£25 instead of £40).
Full membership is £40. Like an associate it puts you in the draw but you also get voting rights at the annual AGM in January where decisions are made. It's a bigger contribution & commitment & doesn't suit everyone. A full member has to be an associate member for a year first. All memberships are subject to approval by the executive committee - please read the constitution.
Memberships run from end of January (after the AGM) to the next AGM when fees are again due. Thank you for your support.
