One Ultimate Frisbee enthusiast has ambitions to bring the sport to Sequim.

Upon her recent return to the area after working in Seattle and traveling abroad, Megan Brocklesby, a Sequim High grad, is hoping to instigate a fun, community-centric activity. Having played Ultimate Frisbee — a limited contact field sport where players split into two teams run and pass a Frisbee disc — while living in Bellingham, as well as in Southeast Asia, Brocklesby fell in love with the sport, she said.

“I love it because it’s some of the best exercise you can get, but you don’t realize it because you’re just running around and having fun,” she said. “Also, it’s a team sport and there’s always room for improvement.”

Regardless of one’s experience level or age, Ultimate Frisbee is easy to pick up, Brocklesby said, and she encourages anyone interested to come out and play.

“It’s a great community activity,” she said.

Although weekly games already were being held on Sundays in Port Angeles, Brocklesby wanted to start a weekly game in Sequim.

“I just felt like Sequim would be a good place to have a Frisbee team because there are a lot of younger people in the area and I know they’d like to have more activities to do,” she said. “We’re going to try to meet regularly at 6 p.m. on Tuesdays.”

The first of the month marked the initial Ultimate Frisbee game held in Sequim near Carrie Blake Park and 18 people came to play. Depending on the amount of interest, a league may take shape in the future, Brocklesby said, but for now it’s not competitive and all about having fun.
