Road to Worlds - GB U23 Open


The GB U23s Open squads’ road to Toronto 2013 started in mid-October 2012 with invitational trials followed by several rounds of call-backs over the following months culminating in the 26 man strong squad being announced mid-March. The squad is incredibly experienced with a lot of the gents coming up through the GB U20 and U17 programs, alongside playing at the highest levels with their club teams for many years.

Road to Worlds - GB U23 Womens.


In October 2012 Ultimate players aged 23 or younger descended on Coventry in order to trial for the three GB U23 Squads who will be competing in Toronto for the World Championships in July 2013. After two days of gruelling hard work, sprints and being put through our paces the women’s squad of 2013 had been chosen.
