In among the variety of highly sought-after sports lies ultimate frisbee, a game inclusive of all ages and abilities.
First introduced to Mudgee a handful of years ago, the sport has weathered its fair share of highs and lows but regardless of what curveballs are thrown, the activity continues to thrive.
Participant in the weekly games, Ged Azar was one of the first to bring the sport to Mudgee and says while it may not be a top-tier sport, it offers a relaxed competitive nature for those less inclined to devote time to serious sporting commitments.
"It's a social game for us. It's just a bit of fun, fitness and social activity. It serves its purpose for those who want something a little different to participate in," Azar said.
"We're not super competitive or push people out, we're very accepting of people of all ages and abilities."
The current age bracket of players of ultimate frisbee in Mudgee is from nine to over 50.
While there has been a decline in numbers over the years, Azar says the group will continue on so long as there's enough players to field teams.
"Mudgee is a tough market to crack, unless you do touch footy or rugby league, it's hard. You've just got to look at AFL and all the other sports that struggle to get a team together," he said.
"We had a few teams together in the beginning, it got popular to a degree and then a lot of people just left town for a variety of reasons.
"Personally, I'm quite enjoying it at the level now rather than it being anything serious, mainly because I just don't have the time or energy to do anything else.
"But, we always welcome new players regardless if they've played before or not."
