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.

Road to Worlds - GB U23 Open

 

The GB U23s Open squads’ road to Toronto 2013 started in mid-October 2012 with invitational trials followed by several rounds of call-backs over the following months culminating in the 26 man strong squad being announced mid-March. The squad is incredibly experienced with a lot of the gents coming up through the GB U20 and U17 programs, alongside playing at the highest levels with their club teams for many years.
