BC Ultimate returns to Surrey with their 2017 events

The 2016 BC Ultimate High School Championships took place at Newton Athletic Park, and Sport Surrey is pleased to announce that those Championships, along with BC Ultimate’s Flower Bowl adult tournament, will be returning to Surrey in 2017.

The Flower Bowl is a long standing premier touring ultimate event, and has grown to the size where a large tournament complex was needed to host even further growth plans.  South Surrey Athletic Park filled that need, and the next event will run on the June 3rd/4th, 2017 weekend.

BC Ultimate’s General Manager Brian Gisel, commented, "BC Ultimate is happy to bring our largest event of the year, the 2017 BC High School Ultimate Championships, back to Newton Athletic Park in Surrey on May 27/28, 2017. In 2016 this event featured over 1200 student athletes on 73 teams from over 40 High Schools and with the continued growth of Ultimate at the High School level we expect that the 2017 tournament will be even larger.  We are also excited to bring Flower Bowl, the longest running Adult Ultimate tournament in Western Canada, to South Surrey Athletic Park next year. BCU expects Flower Bowl to expand to around 40 teams in 2017. We regularly welcome teams from BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Washington St. and Oregon to this annual event which has been running since 1988. The fields and facilities available to BCU makes hosting our events in Surrey the best option for the sport of Ultimate. We look forward to running events in Surrey for years to come."
