However, AP13 is a 3 days event compared to previous years where it was held over 4 days, so the total hotel cost should be relatively the same or lower.

Competition Categories

Pro A Division - Single Hand String Tricks

Pro AA Division - Double Hand Looping Tricks

Pro 3A Division - Double Hand String Tricks

Pro 4A Division - Off-String

Pro 5A Division - Counter Weight

Single A (One-hand String Tricks) Pro division
-This is the division each and every yo-yo player starts out on, whereby the player only plays with one yo-yo at a time. Single A is one of, if not, THE most competitive division around. Attempt to keep up with the fast pace of this division and see how long you can last.

Double A (Two-hand Looping Tricks) Pro division
-This is probably the hardest of all the divisions to tackle for any yo-yo player. Wielding two yo-yos at any given point in time, watch the professions twist and turn both yo-yos around in the air, around their body and around anything ‘plausible’.

3A (Two-handed string tricks) Pro division

-The 3A division is one of the hardest styles of play for any yo-yo player. It may be easy to pick up initially, but it only gets harder as one progresses. This style involves complicated and intricate string tricks with both yo-yos moving around at the same time, requiring immense concentration and accuracy from the player. This year is only the second time AP is having the 3A division, but nonetheless, things are heating up in this division.

4A (Off-String) Pro division
-For the Off-string division, the player plays with a yo-yo not tied on to the end of the string. This basically means that he or she is able to toss the yo-yo around off the string. Watch out for this division and be intrigued by the unlimited possibilities and combinations the player can pull of just by having if off string.

5A (Counter-weight) Pro division
-The 5A division or counter-weight division or freehand division is one whereby the player attaches a dice or any other object at the other end of the yo-yo string, instead of tying it to a finger, and manipulates this object whilst playing with the yo-yo. This gives one the option of tossing the whole set-up into the air (aerial) and other nifty tricks involving the movement of both the object and the yo-yo.


For AP13, we will be bringing back the “AP Champion of Champions”! The overall winner will win a return ticket to the World Yo-yo Contest 2013, representing the Asia Pacific region!

There will be additional 3 prizes for each Pro Division:

Champion     - S$500 Cash + Trophy + Prizes

Runner Up     - Trophy + Prizes

2nd Runner Up    - Trophy + Prizes
