If you wish to organise your own tug of war competition at any time throughout the year, please contact Mick Copper to apply for a TOWA permit on 01933 622639. The cost of a permit is £20. The fixture list for each calendar year is finalised during the November of the previous year. If you wish for your event to be published in the TOWA fixture list, then please contact the TOWA secretary at the earliest opportunity who will look into accommodating your request. Ideally, if you are looking to hold a future event, it is best to provide a range of dates as to when your venue is available in order to allow us as far as possible to avoid any clashes with any other nearby fixtures..
