About the tournament   

This November, come play two days of Ultimate on excellent grass fields, and celebrate the spirit of the game, with the Xiamen Egrets Ultimate Frisbee Club.  

This is a two-day, weekend tournament. We want maximum playing time for everyone, so teams will be kept small (15 max) and games long.     

Xiamen is located on China’s Southeast Coast, by high-speed train about 1.5 hours south of Fuzhou, 6.5 hours south of Hangzhou, 8 hours south of Shanghai, and 3.5 hours east of Shenzhen/Hong Kong.   

The weather in Xiamen is beautiful in late November: not too cold, not too hot, crisp, dry, breezy—perfect weather for Ultimate! 

Xiamen is also one of China’s most beautiful cities, and we will work hard to provide a fun party within easy reach of Xiamen’s most attractive spots on Saturday night.   

We have a large facility with several fields, so each team will have no more than 15 players, to make sure every participant gets plenty of sweet, sweet playing time!   

The field location is about 35 minutes from the airport, 35 minutes from Xiamen Bei high-speed railway station, and and 35 minutes downtown Xiamen—in other words, just 35 minutes from everything! Transportation (buses) will be provided to and from the fields on game day. (Stay tuned for our hotel recommendations, which will be near our bus pick-up location.)     

Note: The registration limit is currently set at 120, but we can accommodate much more than that. Register early to receive a FREE Nalgene, customized, water bottle (made in the USA—normally 129 RMB)!
