🏖️ Almost legends: Greatest Beach Hots Up and Swiss Mixed Nationals Begin! 🇨🇭🧀
Yes that's right folks - two events for your viewing delight live from Italy and Switzerland!
We are spoiling you this weekend with back to back finals action on both Saturday and Sunday, perfect for sitting back and relaxing with some big (or small) screen Ultimate entertainment, live and on demand.
In the rare case that you haven’t already been tuning in, we have taken to the beaches this week to bring you the World Great Grand Masters Beach Ultimate Club Championships 2023. WGGMBUCC… Yep, that’s a lot of letters — but only fitting for the mammoth number of collective playing years colliding on the golden sands here in Italy! So for brevity, we here just call it Greatest Beach.
It might just sound like a “geriatric holiday” for our age 48+ athletes (here’s looking at you Steffen Döscher) but as we emerge into the championship bracket on Friday afternoon you will not want to miss out on seeing some icons and literal legends (over 65’s!!) digging their toes in for some World championship gold.
Going into the business end of the tournament we can promise you some really tight games — we did some negotiating — including a rematch between the 2022 World finalists Young Legends (Germany) and Spangled (USA) in the quarterfinals! Wow!!
The other half of our crew are on mainland soil in the beautiful (if landlocked) country of Switzerland. The excitement is building in Bern with the second and deciding weekend of Swiss Mixed Nationals! 18 teams will be fighting for a national title following on from the preliminary rounds two weeks ago, including the 2022 champs FucZH.
Who do you think will be our new crown Swiss Mixed Champion of 2023? Let us know in our live chats as we watch and see!
You know the drill — all of our game coverage will be free to watch live and on demand for you our viewers. As always we have to send our huge love and thanks to BULA and the Swiss Ultimate Federation for their generosity in supporting our work.
But the love doesn’t stop there! We need to thank our record high of 515 patrons, which is most of our lovely newsletter audience. Our community is healthy and growing and we are so glad that you are a part of it.
Thank you for your engagement, it helps support our work in unbelievable ways. We will keep feeding you extra little benefits that your contributions give us time to create: streaming schedule votes, BTS content and our finest punditry with the EUCF division deep dives (including the newly released mixed patron exclusive!).
See you in the live chat! 💚
