‘Ultimate’, short for Ultimate Frisbee, is a fast growing Frisbee team sport, now played in over 50 countries across the world. In the last three years the sport has experienced viral promotion online, and the American Ultimate Disc League, the first professional league of the sport, recently completed its inaugural season. There are currently around 5000 active players in Australia, including around 600 in Canberra.
There will be teams from Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Canberra attending the tournament, including last years winners: Colony, a Sydney based men’s team and Honey, a Melbourne-based women’s team.
In addition to these teams, there are also 2 elite-level Canberra teams that will be entering the tournament, and vying for a spot on the podium: Fyshwick United, the Canberra Men’s team and Factory, the Canberra women’s team. Both teams placed 3rd at the Regional Championships 3 weeks ago, and are hoping to improve their results at this tournament.
There will also be live results being updated on the webpage and a twitter feed throughout the day. You can also find out more about Ultimate Frisbee in Canberra on the Canberra Ultimate page www.canberraultimate.com
