TUG OF WAR RULES
THE ROPE
The game involves a single rope with a red mark made in the middle of the rope. This red mark is placed
at a perpendicular angle to align to the exact centre point marked on the ground before the
commencement of the game. A coloured mark is made on each end of the rope exactly 13 feet (4
metres) from the red mark. This is the point where the first member of each team will stand.

The objective of the game is for each team to pull the rope along with the members of the opposition
team to their side.

TEAMS
Whilst the rules of the game allow a maximum of 8 members to a team, the Show Committee has
nominated a maximum of 4 members for each team, with no combined weight limitations.

HOW TO PLAY
The centre of the rope (red mark) should align with the centre point marked on the ground.

There are 3 different commands the Judge gives the players.
   ➢ Pick up the Rope
   ➢ Take the String
   ➢ Pull
As soon as the Judge commands “Pull” each team can start pulling the rope into their territory.

If a member of a team falls down that member is given a caution. Each team is allowed two cautions
before being disqualified.

Fouls resulting in Disqualification.
   • Lowering your elbow below the knee level while pulling the rope is a foul called “locking”.
   • Touching the ground for a prolonged period of time is considered a foul.
The game is won when either side’s coloured mark crosses the centre point.
Judge’s decision is final.

                                                                                                    27
