How to Play Tug-of-War

Things You'll Need:
  • Garden Hoses And Attachments And Water Source Measuring Tapes Resins Ropes Sports Referee Whistles White Spray Paints Or Flour Colored Electrical Tapes
Find a level, grassy area to play on. Make a line on the ground with flour or paint. This will be the center line. You can put a wading pool there or, better yet, make a big mud pit for the losers to fall into. Choose a non-player to be the judge. His job is to mark the rope, start the pull, determine a winner, and watch for people breaking the rules. Mark a 120-foot rope at the center with tape. If you make knots in the rope, be sure that they are at matching intervals from the center. Measure 15 feet from the center in each direction and tape the rope at those points. When this line crosses the line on the ground, the team on that end has lost.

Welcome to
This site has been produced to describe how to run an "informal" tug-of-war contest. It is based on my experience in being the Umpire for the Fleet Carnival " Battle of the Pubs " tug-of-war.
Safety First
The rules that I use are based on the rules of the English Tug of War Association but simplified and less formal. The main point behind the rules that I use is SAFETY: the grip and the footware are both potentially dangerous if not dealt with properly. Wrapping the rope around the arm can result in a broken bone and loss of blood flow. Wrapping the rope around the wrong part of the body can cause internal injury, and wrapping it around the neck is just ... (yes, people are that stupid). Spikes and studs in the footware can cause injury when a pull collapses. They can also cause strains and breaks if the feet get stuck in the ground. When running an informal event it might be tempting to have loops in the rope. I prefer not, due to the risk of someone being unable to release the rope if they need to.
The links below will take you to pages that give some explaination of the rules and describe some of the reasons.

ADVICE TO COACHES In selecting men or women to form a team, it should be borne in mind that Tug-of-War is an exceedingly strenuous exercise and training for it can be very monotonous. The participants selected must, therefore, be definitely keen, hard working and cheerful characters. Any participants of surly disposition or given to frequent grousing is much better left out of the team as thay will have a very bad effect on the others. Dress During training, old boots may be worn provided they are comfortable and the soles are reasonably good. The general condition of the boot does not matter. For competitions work, however, really sound boots should be worn. They should be "broken in" beforehand. Boots must not be "faked" in anyway, i.e. the sole, heel and side of heel must be perfectly flush. Participants should be encouraged to change into vests and shorts before doing any rope work. After training, every participant should go through a good cool down and stretching period. Always remember that whilst doing training it is reasonable that the participants appearance is of minor importance, providing it is comfortable and essential to his or her exercise, but it is of major importance at all times during competitions. The whole team must turn out clean and smart. This factor is not only for the best interests of the sport, but also for the morale of the team.

  • Artist: Paul McCartney Rating: Release Date: April 26, 1982 Total Time: Type: Lyrics are included with the album Genre: Rock
Reuniting with producer George Martin was a bit of a masterstroke on the part of Paul McCartney , since it guaranteed that Tug of War would receive a large, attentive audience. Martin does help McCartney focus, but it's hard to give all the credit to Tug of War, since McCartney was showing signs of creative rebirth on McCartney II , a homemade collection of synth-based tunes. This lush, ambitious, sprawling album couldn't be further from that record. That was deliberately experimental and intimate, while this is nothing less than a grand gesture, playing as McCartney's attempt to summarize everything he can do on one record. There's majestic balladry, folky guitars, unabashed whimsy, unashamed sentimentality, clever jokes, silliness, hints of reggae, a rockabilly duet with Carl Perkins, two collaborations with Stevie Wonder , and, of course, lots of great tunes. If anything, McCartney's trying a bit too hard here, and there are times that the music sags with its own ambition (or slightly dated production, as on the smash single "Ebony and Ivory"). But, at its best the surging title track, the giddy "Take It Away," the vaudevillian stomp "Ballroom Dancing," the

With Best Friends, finding professional pet training is easy!
Mid May 2004 Newsletter
Tug-of-war is one of the oldest games played by man - and canine. But when you and Rover are engaging in this age-old battle of strength, are you sending him the wrong message? "Tug of war, for some reason, has gotten a bad rap," says Best Friends professional trainer Lisa Judge (North Plainfield, NJ). "When played correctly, by your rules, tug-of-war is actually a natural outlet for energy and exercise, and promotes real bonding between you and your dog." What's more, Judge added, some dogs have a very high "play drive," and a game of tug-of-war can be used as a reward. Puppy play
If possible, begin playing tug-of-war when your pet is just a puppy. This way, you can establish guidelines for acceptable behavior right from the beginning. Start by teaching the most important part of the game: the "drop it" or "release" command. This command will be used for many situations, and will prove very valuable! When the dog does release on your command, praise him, give him another tug toy and keep initiating the game. The dog will be more likely to release a toy if he knows he's going to get it back again. Judge stresses that it is imperative that you decide when it's time to play. This reinforces your role as the "alpha", the leader who makes all the decisions for the pack.

Tug of war, a game played by groups of kids in parks and wherever else they find enough people and place. Adults play this game too, mostly when out on picnics. But tug of war as an organized sport, a competition with rules and regulations and a gold medal being awarded to the winner. We have had a few gold medalists. This is not fiction but fact and this game was conducted in full competitive spirit in none other than the Olympics! Tug of war is an athletic contest between two teams at the opposite ends of a rope. A central line is marked and each team tries to drag the other over the line. The winner is usually decided by adjudging the best two out of three pulls. This game made its debut in the 1900 Olympics and remained on the Olympic roster till 1920. Tug of war’s Olympics history

For quality underwater photographs showing the proper mix of water, marine life and human interaction, remember the old sayings "know your diving area" or "you just gotta be there". So, let's set the stage for Murphy's TUG-OF-WAR play! The players are (1) the strength of Hercules' thumb coupled to (2) his mindset TUG-OF-WAR insistence to (3) force the camera's metal gears to (4) force the camera's plastic gears to (5) STRETCH his roll of film for JUST ONE MORE FRAME! Top of Page ACT 1: Please! Just a little more film. You begin to search a reef you have never dove before for that proper mix of subject material. After a while of searching, becoming familiar with the reef and taking so-so pictures of so-so subject material, all of a sudden its right there in front of you: that proper mix with no back scatter and you've got your BC just right! Anxiously cocking your camera, about half way or so through your required cocking motion you feel your film advance lever stop short of full cock, telling you "You are finally out of film!". Hurriedly you begin to STRAIN and TUG on your film advance lever with your thumb as you say to yourself "There's just gotta be a little more film hiding in the canister!"

It may have originally been a ritual or religious contest: There is no specific time and place in history to define the origin of the game of Tug of War. The contest of pulling on the rope originates from ancient ceremonies and rituals. Evidence is found in countries like Egypt, India, Myanmar, New Guinea... The origin of the game in India has strong archaeological roots going back at least to the 12th Century AD in the area what is today the State of Orissa on the east coast.
