Frisbee’s catching on

A NEW sport is taking off on the Coffs Coast - and its benefits extend beyond improving health and fitness.

An ultimate frisbee tournament on the weekend, organised by Christian City Church, served as a fundraiser for Destiny Rescue, an international organisation dedicated to rescuing children from human trafficking and sexual exploitation.

Shaun Loone said 48 players took part in the tournament, which involved teams of seven playing two 10-minute halves.

"It's a great, fast-paced game which borrows from both netball and rugby," Shaun said.

"The response was so strong from the community, and from sponsors, we're now looking at making the tournament a regular event."

More than $2500 was raised for Destiny Rescue.
