Plywood Masters 2020 - Watch the Livestreams Press Release

The Senior Plywood Masters is changing in 2020 and looks set to be bigger and better than ever. The event will be held over two days for the first time ever, on 22nd and 23rd February at Boulder UK in Preston. There will be two qualification sessions on Saturday, followed by a semi-final and final on Sunday, which will both be livestreamed.

The qualification round will be the same bouldering league format as before, except everyone will compete on the same 30 problems - whatever category you are in. Each qualification session will have the same problems to compete on. The top 20 men and women (from all categories i.e. veterans and super veterans can progress to the semi-finals if they score enough points to be in the top 20) will progress to a semi-final round on Sunday.

The semi-final round will be held on our La Sportiva competition wall in the same format as an IFSC world cup semi-final round. The top 6 men and women from this round will progress to the final later on Sunday afternoon.

For anyone not competing in the event, the centre will be closed all day on Saturday 22nd February. The centre will be open to the public on Sunday at a reduced entry price to climb of £5 due to areas of the wall being closed for the competition. These will include the La Sportiva competition wall and the steep board and skip area at the far end of the centre, which will be used for isolation.

The final round will also be livestreamed online by TechNative and feature live commentary by Mina Leslie-Wujastyk and Neil Gresham.

There will also be wood-fired pizza on the Sunday for all competitors.
