PAA joined IFA as the UK member nation. When entries open (usually around 6 weeks before the event) the UK team will be registered online. Further instructions will follow including how to pay, T shirt/team kit orders etc. 

In the meantime please read all the information below & click on the IFA OFFICIAL INVITATION button below & read all of that as well. ​​

Can you pull for the UK Team?


- 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.


- 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.

Accommodation & Transport:

IFA has a package deal with some hotels (all details are in the invitation). It is not compulsory - you may wish to 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.


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.
