Alternative Sports Day

September 18, 2008

Fancy trying something different? Want to play a team sport other than football, netball or rugby? Come down to Manchester Alternative Sports Day on Saturday 4th October at Platt Fields Park!

We are holding a sports day - but with a twist! FREE to participate, Alternative Sports Day is an opportunity for you to try out three cool sports: Korfball, Ultimate Frisbee and Softball! 3 different sports but with lots in common: they are three of the very few team sports that men and women play together on equal terms; they are field sports that can also be played indoors and they are a lot of fun!

See here for details.
 

Winter is coming

We'll keep playing Thursday evenings until the light gives out! Check our facebook pages for specific times or email info@duffa.org

Shelley's Birthday = Frisbee Golf!

March 30, 2008

Shelley is turning 30 and thought it would be the perfect excuse to try out Disc Golf at the only course in Britain that was purchased and landscaped for the sport!

Don't worry if you've never played before as neither have I! I've been told that it's really accessible to complete beginners. Derek Robins (owner of Quarry Park Disc Golf and 16 time British Disc Golf Tour Champion) has agreed to be around to lend us golf discs and give us a few pointers.

Duffa Discs Ordered!

November 19, 2007

Discraft has replied with a formal quote for our order, but unfortunately our art was rejected because it had "friz bee" in the text. I have resubmitted the art... it now just says "Didsbury Ultimate" instead of "Didsbury Ultimate Friz bee For Amatuers." I have asked them to charge my credit card and begin the order.

DUFFA discs are coming soon!

A baby is born, that baby is DUFFA!

September 9, 2007

We are now a properly constituted club! We decided to get organised so that we could get a bank account, that being the first step toward getting sports funding from lottery funds or the council. It might take us a while to get through the first funding cycle, but the chances are good that we could get funding for things like t-shirts or indoor pitchs for winter play.

​At our first meeting/BBQ, we adopted a constitution and elected an executive committee. Alan Heckman is the Chair, Steve Morgan is the Secretary, John Mulliss is the Treasurer, and Steve Senior, Hannah Spokes, and James Griffin fill out the committee. If you want to be on the formal membership list of DUFFA, tell Steve Morgan; He will add you as long as you have been to two events. There is no membership fee or anything like that. No one has to be a member; DUFFA events will always be open to everyone and welcoming to complete beginners. The Constitution and the minutes of our organising meeting are available now from http://www.duffa.org
