New Zealand Ultimate is excited to announce the New Zealand Men’s Ultimate team that will compete at the 2016 World Ultimate Championships to be held from 18 to 25 June 2016 in London, England. Coach Warren Buckingham and the selection panel have opted for a combination of experience and youth with seven players returning from the squad that placed 9th in the 2012 World Championships, bolstered by eight players who have represented their country at U20 and U24 level in the last four years.

The team is:

Tom Blomfield (Christchurch)

Ken Diekema (Auckland)

Matt Dol (Wellington)

Richard Fernando (Wellington)

Zev Fishman (Auckland)

Tom Fraser (Christchurch)

Hamish Furniss (Hamilton)

Hamish Gibson (Auckland)

New Zealand will send five teams to the World Championships – one in each division (Open, Women, Mixed, Masters and women’s Masters). The other four squads are expected to be named in mid-October, at the conclusion of their selection camps.
