Following news that a tug-of-war contest in Lyme Regis has been cancelled because of safety fears, SportsBase, the online guide to sports in the UK and the Tug of War Association have teamed up to dispel these fears and help the nation get behind this unique and great sport.

SportsBase.co.uk proudly lists Tug of War in its directory. It is a sport that can be enjoyed by all ages and there are clubs throughout the country for both men and women, at all levels of competition. Visitors can use the SportsBase site to find the club that is closest to them.

Co-founder of SportsBase Nick Kenton says: “We would hate to see people turning away from joining Tug of War because of an incorrect belief that the sport is unsafe. Conducted properly Tug of War is a fun and safe sport, and there are clubs right throughout the UK that would welcome new members.

“SportsBase would like to encourage everyone to get behind this great sport.”

The Tug of War Association, the governing body for the sport in England, encourages event organisers to hold tug-of-war competitions in their events by providing event permits. When a permit is issued, a tug of war competition is covered by the association’s insurance, provided that they follow guidelines, such as ensuring the ropes used are up to standard, ensuring the competition area is cordoned off from spectators, ensuring people do not wrap the rope around their arms and ensuring that all participants wear suitable footwear and clothing.

“Over the last few years we have seen the issue of insuring tug of war competitions become an increasing problem, and stories of large tug of war competitions in China, where people have had their arms ripped off because they wrapped the rope around their arms have not helped matters,” says Alan Knott from the Tug of War Association. “When conducted in a safe manner, the sport can be enjoyed by both competitors and spectators alike at all levels, from village fetes to International competition.”

England will also be the host to the 2007 European Championships in September, which will be held in Minehead, Somerset and both the Tug of War Association and SportsBase would like to encourage everyone to get behind the England team.
