DDC fans,


We're pleased to announce the formation of the DDCPA: the Double Disc Court Players' Association. The primary goal of the DDCPA is to encourage the growth of the sport that we all love by providing a central organizing body to help promote play at all levels and venues, from pod play to the annual championship tournament.


The DDCPA is being run as a Florida 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Its goals are:


- maintain the ddcpa.org website

- coordinate pod information; help new players find a nearby pod

- publish a newsletter

- find ways to encourage new players to try the sport

- advise on rule changes

- coordinate and promote tournaments

- maintain player rankings


We are planning to launch on January 1, 2018. At that time, you will be able to become a member. Membership cost and benefits have not yet been finalized, but the following is likely:


- $10 or $20 per year

- you get a DDCPA number

- initial membership gets you a DDC disc with a DDCPA stamp, possibly also with your name and DDCPA number

- lifetime membership will be available, cost TBD

- newsletter (email)

- player profile on website

- voting privileges


We'll keep you posted as things happen. We trust you'll find this news exciting. We're really hoping to reinvigorate the sport of DDC, which is the most fun thing to do ever.

  • Our Values. Escape is fun. The most fun you can have with two discs. We work to bring this fun to all by teaching folks how to play. We also work to create tournament environments that are competitive, enjoyable for players and spectators, and that provide learning opportunities for all.
  • Our Structure. The DDCPA is a non-profit Florida organization [501(c)3] formed in 2016. We have a Board of Directors that meets regularly to manage the administrative needs of the organization and to accomplish goals that will serve our members and to grow the sport.
