Event details:

This year, on the weekend of the 26th and 27th of July, Didsbury Ultimate Frisbee For Amateurs will sponsor our first tournament, DUFFA Hat! The tournament will last all day Saturday and most of Sunday, with the final played late Sunday afternoon. The tournament will take place at the Burnage Rugby Club, Varley Park, Manchester. See the site here.

Hat tournaments are fun and relaxing way to play ultimate. The focus is on spirit, enjoying the game, and playing with people who are not usually on the same team as you. For more about what a hat tournament is and how DUFFA Hat will be organized, click here.

Tournament fees are £16 per person for the full weekend, and include a free t-shirt, free camping, and a great big party in the clubhouse bar on Saturday night. Great prizes will also be included for the teams that are tournament finalists and for the MVP on each team. DUFFA Hat 2008 is currently limited to 160 players, so sign up now!

Please bring:

Please bring your studs and clothes that you are comfortable playing ultimate in. As always, sunblock and a water bottle are a good idea.  Bring a towel if you are planning to shower on site. Food will be available for sale in the club house at meal times, and a Tesco is fairly close, but you could still bring snacks if you like. There will be a party on Saturday night, so if you don't want to party in your playing clothes, bring something else.

If you are camping, plan to bring whatever you need for camping.

Every tournament participant will be given a free team t-shirt, so don't worry about jerseys or light and dark shirts.
