FLYING SAUCERS Frisbee Fest Lands In Puerto del Carmen

The annual Beach Ultimate International Tournament touches down in Puerto del Carmen this weekend. As 24 teams and 350 players from across Europe slug it in the sand on Playa Grande.

Now in it´s 14th year, the Beach Ultimate Tournament attracts some of the top exponents of this fast growing sport from around the continent and has been organised by the local side Mubidisk, who are currently the champions of Spain.

For those of us who used to just throw a frisbee around in the park for fun Ultimate is a fully formed and fast moving sport. With teams comprised of five players per side attempting to catch the flying disc in their opponents endzone.

The first team to score 13 points wins, failing that the highest scorers after 45 minutes are victorious. And in true corinthian fashion the whole game is self-refereed, ensuring fair play and sportsmanship all round.

All of the action gets underway from tomorrow at 09.00, running through until 18.00, with the same running times on Saturday. And the grand final is being staged on Sunday at 14.00.
