Double Disc Court
Double disc court is a frisbee sport which combines quickness, strategy, and
throwing ability. It is one of seven events contested yearly at the world
overall flying disc championships and the most fun thing to do ever.
Double Disc Court Players Association
DDC is played by two teams of two players each. The courts are 13 meters square
and 17 meters apart. You get one point for a throw that lands and stays in the
opponents' court, or if an opponent drops your throw. Your opponents get one point
if your throw touches outside
their court. If you can arrange it so that the other team is touching both
discs at the same time, you get two points. That is called "doubling" your
A common strategy for escaping doubles is for one player to tip one of the discs.
While that disc is in the air, the other player catches and throws the other disc. In the
picture, Tony (in the front of the court) has tipped his disc. I am catching
the other disc and will throw it back before Tony catches his tip.
The gallery has been divided into one page per tournament, so you should be
able to find the pictures you want more quickly.
