*some athletes not pictured.

PQ = Pro Qualified

“Pro Qualified” means that you are qualified to compete in the IPL as a Professional Athlete. Technically you are an IPL Pro. However, you may still compete as an Amateur (Open, not Novice) as long as you have not yet competed as an IPL Pro. In the event that a Pro Qualified Athlete wins (places first) another Pro Qualifying show, the competitor who placed second would be awarded the Pro Qualified status, assuming they achieve the necessary 7 point average score.

IPL APEX: The IPL’s year-end pinnacle event.

  • IPL Pro-qualified Athletes must place top 5 at a 2019 IPL Pro show in order to qualify for the PRO APEX.
  • Amateur Athletes must place top 5 at a 2019 IPL contest in order to qualify for the Amateur APEX.
  • BE SURE TO CHECK THE CONTEST RESULTS as some top 5 athletes were already APEX qualified. In these cases the qualification(s) will go to the athlete(s) who placed next in order.
