Frisbee: Fun-filled event for all

2012-12-01 00:00

THE Long Donkeys, Pietermaritzburg’s frisbee team, are hosting a frisbee tournament today and tomorrow.

This will be the first one in three years and anyone, from the age of 13 years old, is welcome to take part.

Savannah Zacharias, a team member, told Weekend Witness that 64 people have already signed up for what is going to be a great fun-filled event.

According to Zacharias, frisbee, which is a popular sport in the U.S. and Europe, is growing in South Africa. She said the tournament is a good way of promoting the sport. She especially encouraged those who would like to know more about the sport to sign up. “It’s a lot of fun. It is also a good way to keep fit because you get to run a lot. I enjoy it,” said Zacharias, who started playing in 2006.

The Long Donkeys, made up of both men and women, currently hold the number two spot in the country and they hope to win the national tournament next year. The event starts at 8 am and will be held at Alexandra High School.
