ULTRA POLE

The exhilarating, inspiring and acrobatic Ultra Pole! This freestyle pole battle was designed to encourage innovation, embolden creativity, elevate freedom of expression and escalate ultimate athleticism. Judged by the new Freestyle Pole Series Rules, Ultra Pole is the ultimate trick battle enabling the challengers to trick out against each other in battle style rounds.

An element of crowd participation is involved in the judging process, taking this discipline to new levels in crowd astonishment and frenzy. Since the inaugural Ultra Pole World Championships in 2016 at World Pole Sports Championships in London, Ultra Pole has been a resounding success. Ultra Pole is where new moves are born and where innovation lives!

Each Ultra Pole battle lasts a total of 2 minutes. Challengers have a maximum of 30 seconds at a time to lay down their challenge, thus alternating the time and allowing each challenger a minimum of 2 turns to show what they can do. These one-on-one battles are freestyle and not predetermined routines. Upbeat music is chosen by the organisers and is unknown to the challengers prior to their battle.

SCORING
The Ultra Pole Battle System is based on 5 major approaches / perspectives of judging for each battle round; the scoring system has been put together to complement the freestyle format of Ultra Pole. Each of the 5 elements is a different way to evaluate the different components of the battle.

These 5 elements are:
1. Battle Rounds
2. Degree of Difficulty
3. Technical Execution
4. Presentation
5. Overall Performance

“A ROUND is the challenger’s TURN within the full two-minute BATTLE. Your round shall last no more than 30 seconds at a time. Use your round to answer your challenger’s challenge, and then to make your own challenge back. The combination of each challenger’s rounds together equal one battle in its entirety.

Three qualified judges are assigned to judge all of the criteria objectively, with one of the three judges being the master judge. The winner is the challenger with the highest score overall.
