Welcome to Pole Sports UK. We are the National Pole Sports Federation for England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

Pole Sports UK work under the umbrella of the International Pole Sports Federation (IPSF) and have developed a solid steering committee of people from all areas of the UK who are all equally committed to the development of Pole as a reputable Sport.

PSUK are responsible for setting standards in the UK for Pole Sports in such areas as judging, competitions, instructions, training and much more beyond. We are working towards having a high level of consistency in these areas to gain credibility and recognition as a sport in this country.

As a National Federation, we are responsible for the development of our UK athletes in competitions at home and abroad whilst ensuring their best interests are taken into consideration. We are also responsible for ensuring our highly trained judges are working within the IPSF code of conduct and are ethically consistent.

PSUK are working towards getting recognition by Sport England/Sport UK to be accredited as an official sport. This will enable us to request funding for National and Regional Competitions as well as offering support and encouragement for a whole new generation of Pole Sport Athletes.

This is a not for profit federation, this means that all of our volunteers give their time freely to promote and develop British Pole Sports.
