As a TD, what are the mandatory requirements for the WGE? (Tournament Directors)

  1. All WGE tournaments must be officially sanctioned by the PDGA and comply with the Official Rules of Disc Golf, Competition Manual, and Tour Standards. To sanction your tournament please visit and submit a sanctioning agreement. Please be sure to specify in the Event Notes that you would like your tournament to be included in the Women's Global Event.
  2. The event must be at least two rounds and every layout must have at least three ratings propagators. At events that only offer women's divisions, the TD may offer a mixed division of up to four players in order to serve as ratings propagators without paying post-event fees for those players.
  3. For Junior divisions under 12, the score of the first round will be submitted by the Tournament Director and rated by the PDGA. Note that the layout played by Juniors under 12 must have at least three propagators (with eight officially rated rounds of 700+) playing that same layout to get an accurate rating for the PDGA Women's Global Event. For all other divisions, scores from the first two rounds of each participating tournament will be submitted by the individual Tournament Directors and rated by the PDGA. These round ratings will be totaled and averaged to determine a player's "Global Score." For the rounds to qualify, the event must include two rounds and have at least three ratings propagators (players with a PDGA rating of 700+ and a minimum of eight officially rated rounds) playing on the same course layout during each round for ratings to be calculated as accurately as possible. Global Scores will be updated throughout the day with our Women's Global Event Champions being officially announced on
  4. If you are sanctioning a standalone WGE tournament that only offers women's and girls' divisions, please name your event “WGE - XX” where XX is the name of your event.  (For example “WGE – Springfield Disc Gals”). 
  5. If the event also offers mixed divisions, add “+ WGE” to the end of the tournament title  (For example “Springfield Sizzler + WGE").
  6. Pro-Am events must offer all 27 women's and girls' divisions (those with FP, FA, and FJ prefixes). TDs are highly encouraged to run divisions with fewer than three competitors so that players in those divisions can compete against the global field.
  7. Pro-only and Am-only events must offer all women's and girls' divisions that are applicable to their event class and sanctioning Tier. For example:
    • a Pro-only B-Tier would have to offer all Pro women's divisions;
    • an Am-only A-Tier would have to offer all Am women's and Junior girls' divisions;
    • an Elite Series event would have to offer FPO.
