Frisbee Championships on this weekend

This weekend Greater Shepparton will host the Ultimate Victorian Frisbee Championships at John Gray Oval in Mooroopna on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 September.

It is the first time this event will be played in Shepparton. Normally this event had been played in Melbourne.

Greater Shepparton City Council Deputy Mayor Kim O’Keeffe said “I am excited for Greater Shepparton to host this free public event, which forms an important part of teams qualifying for the Australian Ultimate Mixed Championships later this year.”

“On behalf of Council I thank Ultimate Victoria for bringing this event to Greater Shepparton. This is a great opportunity for our region to showcase Greater Shepparton and further enhance our profile as a leading major event destination in regional Australia.”

“This weekend will see around 1,000 players, officials and spectators across spending time and money in Greater Shepparton, a great boost to our business and visitor economy sectors.”

“I encourage residents and families to get down to the Mooroopna Public Open Space to support this great free event in Mooroopna while seeing Frisbees being thrown all around the oval” said Cr O’Keeffe.

Nine fields will be set up at oval spaces in Mooroopna to accommodate 25 teams to take part in the two days of competition.
