Wildwood Frisbee tournament draws thousands for friendly competition, camaraderie [photos]

    The Wildwood Ultimate Beach Frisbee Tournament returned to the Jersey Shore this weekend with more than 450 teams competing for the top prize across 110 fields scattered around the beach in Wildwood, N.J.

    The setting reflected the overall fun spirit of the games, with roller coasters, boardwalk and beach as a backdrop. Play became intense at times, but always returned to friendly competition with the weekend serving as a kind of college reunion for many teams.

    Nolan Levenson of team Flawless, described his teammates as, “all a few years out of college,” with members coming from New York City and Washington, D.C., and one player still pursuing a degree.

    Now in it’s 23rd year, the tournament included post game parties and free admission for spectators.

    Proceeds benefit regional charities such as Wounded Warrior Project, Toys for Kids, Wildwood High School and Wildwood Catholic High School Athletics Department.
