The purpose of this event is to celebrate disc golf, introduce it to people who have not played the sport or just enjoy playing the game while raising money for non-profit organizations. It is a worldwide celebration for the love of disc golf.
The whole emphasis is on FUN! The spirit of the event is to show someone who has never played and introduce them to the sport by playing with them, showing them how to play or even inviting them to your tournament so that they can watch the game being played. ABDG Club has registered for this tournament to join the celebration around the world.
Existing disc golf players can participate with new players to show them how to throw, play, and enjoy the game. lt is an opportunity for disc golf players to give back a little of their time and energy through WBDGW, as it can help our local club as well as the Disc Golf Foundation to help grow the sport.
lt is a great opportunity to invite your friends, family, and neighbors who might have heard of the sport but never played it. They will get a disc and/or a WBDGW t-shirt & more as a part of their players package.
The sport offers health benefits as it provides an opportunity to walk outdoors. ltís a wonderful and inexpensive family activity that can be enjoyed over and over again.
lt is an opportunity for kids to discover a sport that they can enjoy all their life which can have a positive impact on their physical health. lt is a sport that can be enjoyed alone or with others.
With childhood obesity being such a critical issue, disc golf is an inexpensive and enjoyable alternative to other more complex and demanding team sports.
Lets celebrate disc golf together around the world the first weekend in May as part of WBDGW.
When: April 30th & May 1st
