Join us for WTDGC 2022

The World Flying Disc Federation (WFDF) and the Local Organising Committee (LOC) Lagoda Disc Golf Club, are excited to present the WFDF 2022 World Team Disc Golf Championship (WTDGC) to be hosted in Varaždin northern Croatia. This event will be WFDF’s 4th event for national disc golf teams and invitations were sent to all WFDF member National Federations and their Disc Golf Associations to register.

The WTDGC will be hosted over 4 days from Wednesday 17th of August to Saturday 20th August on two 18-hole courses located in the forests and on the Drava river embankment. Both courses will be open for practice from Monday 15th August (or earlier).

Please pay close attention to all communications going out from WFDF and the LOC, paying particular attention to details such as deadlines. To plan a successful event, we all need to work together to make sure we collect all the information and fees on time. Please do everything you can to support us by respecting all deadlines and responding with the necessary data efficiently. We will do our best to make the process as simple as we can.

Following are the main details that you need to know before deciding to register your team. Please note that teams should not make travel plans until AFTER the official bid list with countries attending is published AFTER the 15th January 2022 as uncertainties still remain around the Covid-19 pandemic and impacts on global travel.

PANDEMIC CONSIDERATIONS

Over the past 20 months the effects of the Covid-19 Pandemic have created uncertainty about hosting sports events and created travel restrictions globally. WFDF postponed the WFDF World Team Disc Golf Championships to 2022 in the hope that travel and ability to host international sporting events becomes more stable. In 2021 WFDF found it safe and possible to successfully host the European Team Disc Golf Championships in Croatia and athletes were able to move into the country without too much hassle.

WFDF’s Covid-19 Working Group (C19WG) will continue to monitor the situation within Europe and will work with the LOC to ensure that national and local governmental and health agency advice and criteria for hosting sports events are met in full. Only if and when the Working Group is satisfied that it is possible to host WTDGC while keeping all players safe, will the event go ahead.

It is likely that some of the restrictions placed upon Disc Golf athletes during the pandemic will continue as good practice in the coming year. Any updated guidelines published by WFDF and PDGA will be a part of the process needed to ensure that all athletes, staff and volunteers are kept as safe as possible at WTDGC. Social distancing, face mask use, virtual briefings and non-contact scoring will likely form part of the covid hygiene plan for WTDGC 2022.
