Ultimate Frisbee

This week Lexis Noosa has been playing Ultimate for the first time. When we found out that one of the students was on the Colombian national Ultimate team we knew we had to add the sport to the busy activities schedule. On Monday we headed down to Lion’s Park, our favorite spot in Noosa, and our Colombian Frisbee expert explained the ruled of this fast-paced, simple but highly skilled game. Our first ever match was nail-biting and ended with a score of 9-8 with a point being scored in the last seconds of the game. Everybody had so much fun that we had to organise a second match this week on Wednesday. This time we decided to take a trip to our very own slice of paradise on main beach. There couldn’t have been a better setting for this beautiful sport. Unfortunately, the sand made for a much more tiring playing surface. We all got a good work-out! This match was not nearly so close with our talismanic Colombian  Paula blowing away the opposition with her precision passing. We were also joined by our TAP students who enjoyed a day at the beach even though there were no waves for surfing. It was great for them to be introduced to such a dynamic new sport. All in all, Ultimate has been such a hit that it’s going to be a bi-weekly event.
