Exclamation Elligibility for representing your country in WFTF: New Rule

From Andy Kays, President WFTF

Considering we boast a membership og 31 RGB’s, I have to admit that the total amount of votes received were well below expectations.

As the EFTA provided us with an improved version of the country representation rule (below), it is this the following votes are based on…


Votes FOR 11

Abstained 20

Therefore, the following rule for country representation is now enforced and with immediate effect…

Each competitor wishing to attend the WFTF World Championships must select a single country from within the WFTF to represent, whether they attend as an individual or as a team member. To be eligible to represent a country a competitor must either;

i) have been born in that country
ii) be a current resident of that country and have been a resident of that country continuously for the previous 12 months
and must also
iii) be a member of a club within the WFTF NGB/RGB of the country of their residence

To change the country they represent, a competitor must;

i) have moved to a country of residence different to the last country represented
ii) have membership of a club within the WFTF NGB/RGB of the their new country of residence
iii) have obtained written permission from the WFTF President and Vice President for this change

Changes to the country a competitor represents will only become effective after the next WFTF World Championships


If you have changed your country of representation away from your birth place you may only change back to representing your country of birth by moving residence back to that country and residing there continuously for one year and being a member of a club within the that country's WFTF NGB/RGB.

Eligibility does not ensure qualification. An NGB/RGB may elect to use further qualification methods for their team and individual places.

Participation of a WFTF event in breach of these rules will not be permitted

Kind regards to all !
