DUFFA Hat 2013 details can be found here 

Our very own annual tournament

What is DUFFA Hat?

Every year we host one of the largest "Hat Tournaments" in Europe. It's an Ultimate Frisbee tournament where people sign up as individuals and are put onto balanced teams (not really picked from a "hat" but that's the idea..) and given their own coloured tournament shirt. It creates a fun and friendly tournament experience with players attending from all over Europe! The weekend includes camping close the pitches and a huge party on the Saturday night. We like to think it's become one the highlights on the Ultimate calendar for pros and beginners alike!

BREAKING NEWS: Dates for DUFFA Hat 2013 are confirmed as 27th/28th July 2013.
