The Judging System

Here at The Bristol Pole Championships, one of our biggest aims is to create a fair judging environment. To increase the transparency of this event we would like to share with you the full judging system so you can see exactly what you will be marked on and trust that we are aiming for the fairest possible outcome. The judging process ensures that there is no positive or negative bias by deducting the highest and the lowest score from each competitors final scores.

We promote fairness is by assessing each judge before we hire. They complete an online application form and a mock judging round so we can assess their scoring and feedback.

Please take a look at the drop down menu to see a break down of the full system. Any queries please email us at
