IPSF judging rules, regulations and scoring have been carefully created by the IPSF technical committee, in conjunction with the pole community, to promote a fair and transparent judging.

As well as the Elite category for athletes aiming to qualify for the WPSC, the Championships include the Amateur and Professional divisions, providing the platform for these athletes to compete using the IPSF Code of Points.

 World Pole Sports Championships

The IPSF competition season runs from January to October.  The 2021 WPSC was held virtually.  The 2022 WPSC is to be held on 27-30 October in Switzerland. A new Pole Sports Code of Points was released in late 2021 and is valid for the 2022 and 2023 competition seasons.
