World Series of Beach Ultimate Canceled for 2016

Have you heard of the World Series of Beach Ultimate? This new beach ultimate event would be played biennially with the inaugural 2016 edition planned to utilize existing tournaments on three continents as qualifiers to eventually meet in November for the Series Championships in Mixed, Mixed Masters and Mixed Grandmasters divisions.

UPDATE: The 2016 series was postponed due to lack of sponsorships. BULA hopes to try the World Series event again for 2018.

The original plans was to have the longest-running and largest Beach Ultimate tournaments on each continent - Paganello (March 2016, Europe), Boracay Open (April 2016, Asia), and Wildwood (July 2016, North America) - to host the continental editions.

The, the top 5 teams in each division at Continental Series will qualify for the World Series finals in November 2016 in Dubai - site of the World Championships of Beach Ultimate in March 2015. BULA hopes to be able to offer players FREE travel to Dubai, "IF" they "can pull this off" per the original (July 2015) notice about the event.
