One of the most important ultimate coed tournament in Europe. A 3-day tournament. A high-level tournament. A tournament with tons of fun.
The 14th, 15th 16th of May 2016. It'll be sunny, warm, and not too hot.
In Geneva, the center of Europe. Easy to come by train or by plane.
The Talampaya fields are 100% real grass fields (they could even be "bio") marked to official ultimate dimensions. No plastic lines, no guessing if someone is in or out using cones, only beautiful natural ultimate. And just in case the weather gets nasty and the grass is unplayable, we've got backup turf fields so the ultimate will keep on going.
Talampaya is run by a volunteer team of Geneva Wizards looking forward to making your tournament weekend an amazing time of sport and fun."
What if... ? (Cancellation policy)

If a team should cancel their registration after payment, team fees are not refunded but 1/2 of the playerfees are refunded until the 15th of April 2016, no refunding after this date.

Talampaya is an area discovered in 1873 by the German geologist Alfred Stalzner, lost in the deserts of the La Rioja province, in Argentina. According to most linguists, its name means “dry river of the tala” (a hackthorn tree, Celtis spinossissima).
The rocks that characterize it, as old as dinosaurs, were exposed during the uplift of the Andean range. They contain high quantities of iron oxide, which gives them their red color, and have been shaped by wind and water over the last 60 million of years into their current forms.
The region has been inhabited by Cienaga, Condor Huasi, Aguada, Sanagasta and Inca peoples ever since 2600 b.C. They used the area as a sacred meeting-place for artistic expressions, and filled it with petroglyphs.
Talampaya’s rock-art is to be found on black rocks or on the faces of the canyons, and depict geometric forms and shapes of animals and humans. One of them is believed to represent a wizard, with his bag of what, you have to agree, looks like a frisbee!
One former Wizards traveled there and came back with a picture of this wizards which became the tournament and club logo. This logo is now famous around the ultimate world. One of the trivia challenge questions during Worlds in Vancouver was to name the club this logo belongs to!
