The Wildwoods host return of world's largest Beach Ultimate Tournament - Saturday, July 31st & Sunday, August 1st


PRESS RELEASE

THE WILDWOODS - The 29th Annual Co-Ed Beach Ultimate Frisbee Tournament, the largest co-ed beach Frisbee tournament in the world, returns to the Wildwoods' award-winning beaches on Saturday, July 31 and Sunday, August 1.

Held every July in the Wildwoods, the Wildwood Beach Ultimate Tournament started in 1992 and draws over 400 teams from the United States and around the globe.

Beach Ultimate, originally known as Ultimate Frisbee, is a non-contact team sport played by players with a flying disc. It mixes the best features of sports such as soccer, basketball, American football and netball into a simple yet fascinating and demanding game.

Points are scored by passing the disc to a teammate in the opposing end zone. Other basic rules are that players must not take steps while holding the disc, and interceptions, incomplete passes and passes out of bounds are turnovers.

Teams participate in this action-packed tournament consisting of 4-on-4 team competition for players of all levels ages 18 years and older. A normal game is played until one team achieves 15 scores. A score is similar to a touchdown because to score, someone must catch the Frisbee in end end zone. All beach ultimate players demonstrate strength, agility and stamina in order to play such a physical game while sinking into a soft, sandy surface.

Competitions will be held from 9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. Over 100 fields will stretch along the beach from Surfside Pier to the Wildwoods Convention Center. Admission is FREE for spectators.

The Wildwood Beach Ultimate Tournament is sponsored by the American Beach Ultimate Association (ABUA). The ABUA is dedicated to the continued growth of the the sport of Beach Ultimate by strengthening competition in the local, national and global Beach Ultimate community.

Harlem Globetrotters to return to Wildwoods Convention Center for four games - August 11-14


Just about every major event and a number of annual traditions in the Wildwoods were scuttled last summer, due to the pandemic. Thankfully, 2021 has seen a progressive return to normalcy.

This week, we learned that the Harlem Globetrotters will be coming back to the Wildwoods Convention Center for a four-game set - Wednesday, August 11 through Saturday, August 14 - as part of their Spread Game Tour.

All four games begin at 7 pm. Tickets are on sale now via Ticketmaster or at the Wildwoods Convention Center box office (4501 Boardwalk).

Magic Pass Pre-Show tickets are also available in addition to new "premium" offerings, including Celebrity Court Pass, Player Meet & Greet and #SQUADZONE floor seating. For full details, visit:


Over the past decade or so, the Globetrotters' annual visit has become a popular tradition in the Wildwoods, with the team making surprise appearances around the island, performing trick shots at unique locations and riding the Sightseer Tram Cars to promote the games.

Stay tuned for announcements and updates on where the players may appear.

Recently, the Globetrotters made headlines with a highly-publicized effort to join the NBA, via an open letter to Commissioner Adam Silver. The team, founded in 1926, has competed in over 27,000 games (with a .987 win percentage) in 124 countries.
