Dongguan’s 1st traveling Frisbee Team

Before the emergence of HERE! Outdoors, there was no official Frisbee team in Dongguan. Of course, now we have Ultimate Frisbee which we’re sure you have heard of, but did you know that the very first Dongguan team took part in a Frisbee tournament known as the Shenzhen Ultimate Friendship Cup? The event took place from 9 am to 3 pm on Saturday August 18, and the newly devised Dongguan Mafan Ultimate Frisbee team fought fiercely in seven games, owning three victories, and four losses, landing them in 5th place out of eight teams. Inspiringly, the team had only formed a week before and were much less experienced than the other teams, so landing in 5th place was a nice surprise! A great achievement for our local team. Due to Shenzhen’s vast, growing Frisbee community, the invited cooperation was initiated between Shenzhen and Dongguan. Following playing in the DG Frisbee league, many members wanted to take their game to the next level, and so the inception of Dongguan Mafan was ideal for certain members who are skilled team players.

HERE! Outdoors’ Daniel Shultz commented, “It’s incredible to see the passion grow as we learn to play as a team. And I’m looking forward to the bonds that will strengthen as we go on.”

The team is now focused on playing at the Guangzhou Open (a two-day tournament with teams from Beijing, Shanghai etc.) which will take place on November 10 and 11 and again will now include the first ever organized Frisbee team from DG!
