Tug of War FAQs

Which of the tug of war ropes would be the best for outdoor use?
Synthetic Hemp. While maintaining a traditional appearance, it is weather, rot and water resistant. Manila and Sisal, while they naturally have good UV resistance, are susceptible to rot and mildew – if required for continual outdoor use, they should be treated first. 

Can I use this product for competitions?
Official competition rules require the rope to be a minimum of 35 metres in length and a minimum diameter of 32mm. Our official competition rope complies with this.

Do the official specifications for tug of war matter for team building activities?
No. In this instance your rope just needs to be long enough to accommodate both teams. It can be any thickness.

Can you have a four-way game of tug of war using this product?
Yes. A four-way rope is made by interlocking them, forming a ‘+’ shape.
