My guest this week is Patrick van der Valk, President of BULA (Beach Ultimate Lovers Association) and one of the main guys behind the European Championships of Beach Ultimate happening this June in sunny Spain. He started playing Ultimate in 1979 and is an absolute legend of the game - especially on the beach. Patrick is also a WFDF board member and believes passionately in Spirit of the Game, so much so that he is chair of WFDF's spirit committee.
Patrick talks about his journey through Ultimate over the years, his special love of Beach Ultimate and the story behind the huge European Championships of Beach Ultimate on 27-30 June 2013 in Calafell, Spain; where there are over 70 teams competing!
He also describes the plans for an amazing live, online experience of the tournament for those of us that can't be there.
