About last years edition

Welcome to the Gong Classic!

It's our 10th anniversary! You're all invited, and to celebrate, we want to make it a big one!

We're back at Thomas Dalton Park with plenty of space for fields, and for the first time we'll be offering a single-day youth division! Find more details about the youth division in the section below.


Main Division

This tournament is a great opportunity for a hit out early in the Mixed season. Whether your team is looking to compete in the NSW Mixed Ultimate Championships (great opportunity to practise at the home grounds!), the Australian Mixed Ultimate Championships, or forming just for this event, it'll be a great weekend! Notorious for being affordable, extremely fun and competitive, players of all abilities are encouraged.

How much: $45pp (two days) // $30pp (one day) // $5pp (non-players)
What's included: Full-sized, lined fields; snacks; coffee van (+1 drink voucher); great party (more info TBA); and some great alternatives to medals for our spirit/tournament champions!

FAQ (main division):

How do I pay?: Captains collect and pay player fees on behalf of their whole team in one payment. See 'payment details' section above.

How do I get there?: Thomas Dalton is close to the train line and the free bus stops. There is plenty of parking in the two car parks located off of Carters Ln. and Elliotts Rd. 

So it's the 10th anniversary. What will be special about GC X?: We'll be hosting a great party (specific details TBA), and we're putting a strong focus on reducing our tournament waste while still providing a great player experience. Bring your keep cups, because we'll be running a lucky draw competition; we're rethinking our snack options; and we've put a lot of effort into replacing regular ol' medals with something we hope you'll love and actually use! Not to mention running our first-ever youth division at the same time! 

What about COVID?: We have a safety plan in place and will have the necessary sanitising equipment available at all times. If circumstances change and your team decides they don't wish to travel, get in contact with us via , or  ASAP.

I'm U18 but want to play in the main division: Awesome! Go for it – just ensure you have completed the junior player consent form. Bring the completed copy to the event or submit online when you register. Alternately you can email a scanned copy to  or .

Youth Division

We are so excited to be providing a youth division for the first time in Wollongong! We hope this will be an awesome opportunity to try your hand at playing against other young people in a tournament format, outside of a school context. This event will be played alongside a high level adult mixed tournament which means you'll also have the chance to spectate some really high quality ultimate!

Not sure if this is the event for you? Joke's on you, it is! Gong Classic Youth is for anyone who wants to play ultimate, regardless of skill or experience.
Don't have a team? No worries!
Want to put in your own team? Great!
Haven't played much before? Now's the chance!
Played quite a bit? Opportunity to hone your skills against some great opponents!
