Welcome to the official website of the 6th edition of the disc golf tournament BTS Urban Mayday in Bratislava - the capitol city of Slovakia. This year the tournament will be a part of the Tri Point Tour - the annual 6-tournament competitive tour in Austria, Hungary and Slovakia. The challenging 18-hole temporary layout in urban setting will test all the players abilities as it offers risk and reward option on almost every shot.
For all the female participants we have a special event as well, on Saturday the tournament will be a part of the Women Global Event global competition between female players all around the world. Each player will automatically be enrolled in the event and the players with the highest PDGA rating average from all the tournaments held on that day will be awarded. So bring all your throws with you as you will need them on hilly open meadows or in the tight woods.
URBAN DG >>
Urban disc golf brings disc golf to the streets of the city. Out of bounds areas - surrounding roads, sidewalks, buildings and parking lots are everywhere, similarily as at Slippery Rock University during the 2015 PDGA Worlds. Comenius University in Bratislava provides a beautiful park space with moderate elevation changes, tree alleys, and space for long holes while staying all the time in the proximity of an urban space. Check the video below for the visualization of part of the space used for the course.
First, check the video above for a brief presentation of Bratislava. With half-a-million population, right on the border of three countries, Bratislava is a fast living hipster city easily accessible from both Vienna and Bratislava airport. It offers a mix of old fashioned feudal ancestry combined with huge communistic plans spiced by the early capitalism crazyness. You can stroll through the charming historical center, admire the 60's and 70's architecture in the suburbs, or watch the many growing skyscrapers over the former graylands. Good and cheap food, pleasant walkable city center - you can all find it here. It is all here.
DG SLOVAKIA >>
Disc golf only started in Slovakia in 1990's and for many years it was just a hobby for the group of privileged players who owned the basket. But nowadays we host popular international PDGA tournaments, local tournaments almost every two weeks. Katka Boďová is one of the best female players in Europe, Michal Kúdela and Marko Čačala made it to the final round of 2018 EDGC in MPO and MJ18. The junior scene is advancing very rapidly here with some 10-15 years old boys and girls playing very solid disc golf. And we have amazing disc golf terrain, like one in Smolenice or Krpáčovo on some of the most spectacular courses in Europe. If you haven't been in Slovakia, it is the time.
