Melbourne Hat is being revamped for 2019 and we are excited about the coming changes. We’ve listened to your feedback and We are committed to making Melbourne Hat the ideal of fun accessible ultimate. We are throwing everything at making Melbourne Hat the vanguard of gender equity in ultimate. To that end let us take you through some of the changes for the 2019 Equity Melbourne Hat.
The 2018 Victorian Mixed Ultimate League is underway! Teams are locked in for a fierce competition over 4 game days held once per month in various locations across Victoria.
The Australian u22 Ultimate Championships is an event showcasing over 280 top level players from the u22 age group. The event attracts teams from ACT, NSW, Queensland, Tasmania, Western Australia and Victoria.
The Sydney Melbourne Open (SMO), as the name suggests, is a tournament that alternates between Sydney and Melbourne. There is an “open” invite for all open and women’s teams from across Australia to attend and compete.
The Kings and Queens tournament is an annual event run by the Monash University Ultimate Club. It is usually held in Semester one and is open to anyone to play, regardless of experience or skill.
Early each year, Ballarat Ultimate Inc run the ‘Golden City Classic’ (or ‘GCC’ as it’s better known). It is the first tournament of the open/women’s season for most Victorian clubs. Tournament champions receive the greatest trophy in Australian ultimate, ‘The Golden Pan’.
Whilst not strictly a Victorian tournament, we do host it every second year. The Southern Regional Ultimate Championships (SRUC) is the qualification event for the National Championships.
‘God Save The Queen’ has been running since 2014 and is an annual fundraiser for Ultimate Peace. It is held in Melbourne on the Monday of the Queen’s Birthday long weekend in June. It is a social, one day, mixed, team, tournament where teams are encouraged to dress up and have fun.
The Melbourne Hat is the longest running tournament in Australia. It began in 1989 and has continued to be a tournament that attracts players from all over Australia. It’s the tournament that caters for everyone, from absolute beginners to World Champions.
