The second edition of our popular mixed pairs event. 2017 saw some of the best teams to be seen on the same UK event floor duel it out over a day of gruelling competition. 2018 looks set to see the competition grow, with the addition of more categories.

Scaled athletes will have the choice of recording their workout, or having it judged by a coach/qualified judge. If they choose the latter option, they will need to submit contact details for that person so we can verify scores should we wish.

You can move up or down categories at any point until qualifier one starts.
