Latest World Championships info


  • Team fees: 150 euros ($200). Deadline: 15 Sept. Late payment fee: 25%
  • Player fees: 80 euros ($110)/player (9 player minimum). Deadline 15 October. Late payment fee: 25% extra.
  • Non-Player fees: 50% discount on player fee.

Early bird special: Players that pay before 30 June July you only pay 100 euros ($135 USD) for the team fee and 60 euro ($85 USD) per player (9 player minimum).
This money will get players a player package with several items in it and rights to play. This money will be used to cover all costs of the tournament, including stands, licenses, first aid, free water and fruit on the field, etc… We are not looking to make a profit on this (although some money for BULA and the Brazilian Federation will be put aside to further develop of Beach Ultimate), but we have to make sure we don’t make a loss. Once we know exactly how many players we’ll have, and get sponsors on board, we’ll start to add more benefits for the players.
There are 4 hotels that have special prices for us. They range between $286 – $354 per week per person (breakfast included). More information and booking instructions at

Based on our communications with all the captains, this is what we know so far:
Mixed Division:

  • Austria (100%)
  • Brazil (100%)
  • Canada (100%)
  • Germany (100%)
  • Peace Team (100%)
  • Ireland (100%)
  • Latvia (70%)
  • Luxembourg (70%)
  • Panama (70%)
  • Portugal (70%)
  • Scotland (100%)
  • Singapore (70%)
  • Spain (100%)
  • Switzerland (100%)
  • UK (100%)
  • US (100%)

This looks like a very interesting mix and should be a great championship.
Men’s division

  • Australia (100%)
  • Brazil (100%)
  • Canada (50%)
  • Currier Island (100%)
  • Mexico (50%)
  • Philippines (70%)
  • Russia (70%)
  • UK (100%)
  • US (100%)

This is a bit disappointing. There is still some hope for men’s teams from France, Colombia, Norway, and Venezuela… So if you know people there, get them to contact their federation or contact person!
Master’s division

  • Brazil (100%)
  • Canada (50%)
  • Colombia (100%)
  • Currier Island (50%)
  • Portugal (100%)
  • UK (100%)
  • US (100%)

This is a slight increase on the 5 teams we had in 2004. France and Japan are still a possibility.
Women’s division

  • Australia (70%)
  • Brazil (100%)
  • Canada (50%)
  • Colombia (80%)
  • UK (100%)
  • US (100%)

We are pulling our hairs out trying to find more women’s teams. There is a potential of a Currier island women’s team if we find enough women that want to have a pickup team, and perhaps France will still send a team.
Anyway, any help you can give us here is much appreciated. The WCBU will be great. We’ll be in a wonderful area, players from 20 countries will be present, parties for sure, so help us get more teams and players. We’ll all benefit from it 🙂
International Teams
Like in 2004 Currier Island will be the pickup team. There is room for one team in all divisions. So if you know of players that want to play in Brazil, but don’t have a national team, have them get in touch with Currier Island (
This year there will also be a mixed Peace Team (formerly India/Pakistan and the West East Indies). This team will do some volunteer work in the area. If you know of players that are interested in joining, also have them contact [email protected].
