Judging will last 14- 28 days from the close of the competition unless there is an unusually high number of entries; results may then take longer. Priority will be awarded to Elite athletes to enable qualification for the World Pole Sports Championships.

Worlds will be virtual and will take place 21 – 24 October 2021. The top Elite athletes are selected from each National Championship to represent their country at the IPSF World Pole Championships annually where more than 40 countries are represented. IPSF judging rules, regulations and scoring will be utilised over the weekend of the National Championships. The scoring system has been carefully created by the IPSF technical committee in conjunction with the pole community, to promote fair and transparent judging.
