GB at the Beach - ECBU 2013

The European Championships of Beach Ultimate took place in Calafell, Spain in late June, with GB represented in all seven divisions. It was a mixed bag of results, given GB’s current high standards in the grass form of the game, with the only Gold medal brought home by the Open Masters Team. The Open, Mixed Masters and Women’s Masters teams all came in second best, with a token Bronze for the Grand Masters. GB Women just missed out in 4th place, but still managed to play a key role in most of the Finals. GB Mixed finished 7th in what was probably the most competitive Division.
