London Youth Games - FANFEST

Last week Crystal Palace National Sports Centre hosted the London Youth Games. As part of their Fanfest event over 100 Primary school children got to try playing Ultimate. Even though it was a windy day all came away with basic skills and had loads of questions about playing more when they got back to school! Hopefully it won’t be too long before Ultimate is included in the Youth Games themselves!
