DUFFA 'Rumble in the Jungle' Hat Tournament 2015
DUFFA HAT 2015 was WILD!
The theme for our 8th Hat tournament was 'Rumble in the Jungle'...think vine leaves, abandoned temples, cannibals, and a cornucopia of weird and wild animals! If you could find it in a jungle at any time in history, it was there at the hat tournament.
Our tournament has a reputation for being very fun, very spirited, and very well organised. Included in your fee was:
Two days of awesome ultimate – at least six matches
- DUFFA Hat athletic shirt unique to your team
- Friday night karaoke welcome party
- Free meal on Saturday evening
- Saturday night jungle-themed fancy dress party with FREE 3-pint challenges
- Sideline games and team challenges
- Free camping
- More prizes than you can shake a stick at.
- A festival atmosphere and loads of new friends for everyone.
DUFFA Hat is a completely volunteer run not-for-profit event! As always, the tournament is open to players of all skill levels, and is a great introduction to the sport for beginners. We will also offer GUARANTEED selection for the tournament if you are a happy friendly player traveling from outside the UK to play with us!
Please check the Registration FAQs below for more information.
If you're an overseas player (you're not British and live outside of the UK) please email us email@example.com if you are looking to arrange your trip to the UK.
DUFFA Hat 2013 sold out in 4 minutes - in order to ensure the tournament registration is as fair as we can make it we had to change the registration process for 2014 to a weighted lottery - this process worked extremely well last year, and we will be using the same process again this year.
Registration will open in April, and close a week later. All registrations received during this time will be entered into a ballot for a space at DUFFA Hat 2015. Any registrations received after the inital window will be placed on the waiting list along with those unsuccessful in the ballot.
Registration DOES NOT guarantee you a space but enters you into the weighted lottery for a space.
We understand that lots of players like to come with their friends - please register together! If one person in a group gets a space from the lottery we'll invite the others in the group. This actually may increase your chances of being successful.
More information on our registration process including a detailed FAQs in available on the More Details page.
PLEASE be honest on your registration form, hat tournaments only work if we all uphold The Spirit of the Game!
Registration for the tournament will open on 13th April and close on 19th April.
