First of all, let me welcome all of you to Royan for the World Championships of Beach Ultimate 2017 – players, coaches, and fans. A lot of people have been planning for a long time for this event, not only in the Tournament Organising Committee but in BULA and WFDF and also in Royan. They have been making sure that everything is as ready as it can be for all of you to enjoy this fantastic event.

I would like to draw your attention to the Player News Feed that will keep you informed during the tournament. It will feature bulletins from us, playing schedules, up-to-date scores and standings, and can be used easily on mobile devices.

If you have any questions there will be volunteers around the beach who can help you with whatever you need.

I hope you all enjoy your week in France, that you can experience some of the culture our beautiful country has to offer, and I wish you all the best of luck for the tournament.

Tournament Director WCBU2017
