Championships

PFA is involved with several International Tournaments - FIPJP Championships, Oceania Confederation Championships and Trans Tasman Championships. We regularly take part in other tournaments involving overseas teams such as the Pan Pacific championships and some hosted by Australian Clubs.

PFA also runs its own National Championships, four Events - Singles, Mixed Doubles, Doubles and Triples - across four Divisions - Open, Women's, Open 60+ and Women's 60+.  These are run at Easter each year and hosted by a Club that has bid for the event for a three-year period.  In addition, PFA runs an annual Shooting Competition. These competitions are individual-based.

PFA also runs a State-based competition - the Interstate Challenge - again at a Club that bids for the event on an annual basis to find the best State in the country.
