Finding Events

Most events are listed on the RobotCombatEvents website. Use the page's Search feature and a Map View to search for events by location; perhaps there's one near you! If you don't see any close by, search for past events to learn which organizations operate nearby, and watch for their next event to be listed.

Hosting Events

So you've got the robot combat bug and you want to host an event. There are a lot of things involved, so before you try it you should attend one to learn how they are run. If you are sure you want to make a poor life choice and host your own event, head over to Sparc.Tools for a treasure trove of information. The site has guidelines on Tournament Procedures, Match Rules, Judging Guidelines, and Arena Construction. Once you've read everything then you need to think about where you'll store the arena, how it will be transported, where you will hold your events, and how will you get help running them. It's a big commitment and if you are ready to do it the rewards can be terrific but know what you are getting yourself into.

There are some additional resources for event organizers. There are a lot of best-practices on how to prepare for an event, set things up so they run smoothly and avoid common pitfalls. If you are serious about starting an event (it doesn't need to be a big event), send an email to to be put into contact with other organizers.

Current Event Clubs

Here is a partial list of robot combat events (click arrows on column headings to sort by name, location, or weight class). These are clubs, organizations and even individuals putting on events worldwide. Many hold multiple events each year. In all cases they should be thanked! Most use either the SPARC or FRA rules, but if you are planning on competing, check with each event's organizer for the specific rules they will use.
