Ultimate Frisbee Champions Descend on Nolan Reserve

Member for Manly James Griffin has welcomed the start of the Ultimate Frisbee NSW Mixed Championships which will descend on Nolan Reserve, North Manly across Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th of September.

The best players from NSW and Australia will fight it out for the NSW Mixed Championship title, with a special showcase juniors game between Manly and South-west Sydney taking place on Saturday at 12:20pm.

Earlier this week Mr Griffin met with the Manly Ultimate Frisbee team at Keirle Park to show his support and learn some new skills.

“Combining elements of netball, touch football and gridiron, Ultimate Frisbee is a great non-contact sport that is growing on the Northern Beaches,” Mr Griffin said.

“It’s been great learning some techniques from some of Manly’s finest, and who will be leading by example this weekend down as Nolan Reserve.”

“I encourage everyone to get down to Nolan Reserve this weekend to support Manly Ultimate as they look to secure the NSW Mixed Championship title.”

Ultimate Frisbee is a non-contact, self-refereed sport, can be played single gender or mixed, low cost and teaches sportsmanship and fair play. It is played in over 30 countries worldwide.

On October 16 the Manly Mixed Juniors Summer League will begin at Millers Reserve in Manly Vale . Both high schools boys and girls are welcome and registration is now open, costing only $60 for the summer season (October to March 2020).

Players can use the NSW Government’s Active Kids voucher, which provides $100 vouchers for parents, guardians and carers of school-enrolled children towards sport and active recreation costs each year.

From 1 July 2019, parents, guardians and carers have been able to apply for a second $100 Active Kids voucher. More information on the Active Kids voucher can be found at: https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/campaign/active-kids
