March : Latest Ultimate articles including WCBU teams

By @SimonCocking

Chennai Heat - 7v7 Floodlit beach Ultimate tournament

It’s been a busy month since the last round up post.WCBU produced some great matches, many of which can still be viewed via Skyd and their youtube chanel

Surprisingly perhaps many of the articles on the newer ultimate nations, Philippines, Uganda, and India were viewed as much as the pieces on Team USA, as well as our own Irish teams.

Also some great in depth interviews with some longtime quality players;

Tadhg Healy, Irish Captain, Cork innovator

Declan Moore, Australian and (briefly) Irish Captain, [Irish Ultimate’s Roy Keane!]

Del Robins, GB Ultimate player and #1 UK disc golf player for 22 years straight

10 Great African & Jamaican tunes

For David Akinsanya, Ross Webster and everyone else with a shared love of the musical diaspora.

Chatting last night with someone that you ‘know’, but you don’t know what they’re actually interested in outside of work, we got onto music and it was great fun to share some of our mutual favourites. The following list is the tip of the iceberg, and there’s no attempt to be especially obscure or cool, these are just great fun tracks, and if it leads you to discover someone new you hadn’t heard before, then we’re all winners!
