Cork Open 2015

Hi All,

Cork Open 2015 is now being organised for Its 12th year!

Cork open is an Outdoor tournament on the 17th and 18th of October. We will have an Open, Ladies and Junior division. We are going to be using all of our 12 years experience to make this year very competitive and very fun, Cork style! We are reaching out to get interest from as many teams abroad as possible. Cork Open is purposely a great way to finish a club season or start a Uni season!

There is just a player fee of just €20 for teams coming from abroad! This includes parties, lunch both days and a team pack full of goodies!

Here in Cork we are all sound so we will try our best to host as many players coming from abroad as possible. We will be able to recommend hostels close to the venue.

There are plenty of ways of getting here but the most reliable would be flights into Cork airport. You can also get flights into Dublin and a bus directly from the Airport to Cork. Flights in mid-October to Ireland are quite reasonably priced.

And Everything else!
  • Cork Open's parties are always ones to remember and this year we are planning lots of surprises. 
  • Many Games will be recorded and we will have a bunch of photographers each day! 
  • We are planning a long pull competition and several events for the players on the days. 
  • Cork Open's venue is Nemo Rangers sports grounds and this is a top class facility which includes a full bar and stand to watch all the finals. 
  • This year Cork Open is also planning to have signature Discs and more fun things!
  • More information can be found at 
If You're Interested...
like the Cork Open Facebook page for all of the updates.

If you get in contact with us we can:
  1. Expand on the information above
  2. Discuss travel and hosting/accommodation
  3. Talk about if you need pickups, or have a player interested in being a pick up
  4. Have a lovely chat
  5. Give you the names of other teams that have shown interest.
We hope to hear from you soon so this tournament can be the biggest and most fun yet!

    WFDF: WFDF releases six-part video series on Spirit of the Game (SotG)

    08 May 2015

    The World Flying Disc Federation is pleased to announce the release of a six-part video series on Spirit of the Game (SotG). The first-ever WFDF Spirit Conference presented by UltimatEvents and sponsored by WFDF was held in conjunction with the World Ultimate Club Championships in August 2014. During this event, community organizers and leaders from all levels, divisions, and global regions met to discuss a variety of issues related to SotG.

    Organized by the WFDF Spirit of the Game Committee member Kate Barabanova and produced by RiseUp Creative Director Mario O’Brien, the result is a series of insightful and thought-provoking video shorts. Conference moderator and WFDF Athletes Commission Chair Ryan Purcell stated “It was such a pleasure to hear the diverse perspectives from all levels and parts of world. Spirit of the Game is something we all need to work on continuously in order for it to survive and thrive, especially as our sport continues to grow. With leaders like these in our community, I have full faith we will be able to do just that.”

    One episode of the WFDF Spirit Conference will be released each Friday from today May 8th through June 12th with additional commentary, discussion, and interaction with the various panelists on Skyd magazine.

    Topics, panelists, and release order are outlined below:

    1.   World Champs Say Spirit Circles Make Them Better (featuring leaders from 2014 WUCC Women’s Division Gold Medalists Seattle Riot) – May 8

    2.   Spirit of the Game: Making Changes (featuring Task Force Chairman Reuben Berg) – May 15

    3.   Spirit of the Game: Making it Happen (featuring WFDF SotG Chair Patrick van der Valk and Executives from several of the largest flying disc organizations in Australia, Canada, UK, and the USA) – May 22

    4.   Spirit of the Game | Walking the Walk Worldwide (featuring disc leaders from China, New Zealand, and South Africa) – May 29

    5.   Gotta Teach the Children (featuring Head Coaches for Junior National teams from Australia, Canada, Israel, and the USA)   – June 5 

    6.   Spirit Matters at the Top of the Game (featuring Anatoly Vasilyev, Russia; Anna Rogacki, Australia; Katsunori Tanaka, Japan; and Tyler Kinley, USA) – June 12


    WFDF President Robert “Nob” Rauch stated that “While SotG today is indeed embraced and highlighted as a unique feature of our community, WFDF hopes that these videos will foster further discussion and debate among all athletes that results in an even stronger future for Spirit of the Game in all disc sports as an essential element of our culture.  Many thanks to Spirit of the Game Committee Chair Patrick van der Valk who has been such a strong advocate ensuring we keep this focus at the forefront of our sport.” Information supporting Spirit of the Game can be found at,


    National Federations are strongly encouraged to share this information with their members.
