Hereby we invite and encourage you to participate in this TWIF major event, after a forced Stop we had in 2020 due to an unfortunately issue which closed the World. Tug of War is back in action, which is cause for excitement. In addition, we remind you that this is an Official Championship call and that it is a qualifier Championship for the World Games. 

The extraordinary circumstances we are living through present us with an even greater challenge: achieving all the above will guarantee the health of all the people who attend the Championships.

Health situation improves every day. However, we have prepared a safety plan with a procedure that guarantees the health of all participants even in the worst situation. We can assure that the Championships will be held in the best possible conditions. It will be in everyone’s hands to respect and comply with the measures. We will make it!

We want to encourage you to participate in the Championships, so that Tug of War regains its rhythm and activity.

We are very excited about the idea of these Championships, and we are working hard to make Getxo’s Championships a memorable event.

Looking forward to meeting you in Getxo!
