Congratulations for qualification.

We are the Professional Armwrestling Association & as such it is part of our remit to run tournaments to facilitate the progression of Armwrestlers to Pro Status. In 2022 the PAA ran three regional tournaments: The Irish Open, Devastating Devon, & Demolition Derby. We also held the Novice & Pro Nationals. Armwrestling Gods/ARMGODS, United Armwrestling League & the British Sit Down Armwrestling Association ran tournaments that were considered in the rankings. Rankings rely on access to reliable results so if the tournament you pulled in did not publish results or have any sort of traceable structure they will not be considered. A reminder of the criteria: 

Winning the Novice Nationals.
Winning two non national competitions
Gaining three novice places
Gaining two pro places
Armwrestling for 5 years.

There are grey areas & instances where promotion might be delayed where two places were gained on one day in small weight classes or under circumstances that need consideration. Those wishing to exit the Novice division can do so by entering the Pro class exclusively. We don't award certificates for that, but it is a pathway. Connor Zuccotti gained a place in the 2021 Pro nationals & entered Pro class competitions thereafter. He won his weight class on both arms in 2022 cementing his status, a fine example of dedication & perseverance.

Keeping up to date with who has done what takes time. After checking the 2022 results congratulations to these pullers who have exited the Novice Division & can now be called Pro Armwrestlers:
