Welcome to the UK Women's Disc Golf Association
Our journey began with one step and now we are making a difference
Disc Golf is one of the best lifetime fitness activities you could find to do. It is easy to learn, a healthy activity, accessible to people of all ages and fitness levels and has a low cost entry level to play. If you can throw and like to have fun in the great outdoors, you can play disc golf.
Join us on our continued groundbreaking journey to provide a platform for the sustainable growth of disc golf for all women in the UK
Although Disc Golf has been around since the early 70's, this activity has been low on the radar for females in the UK. Like a lot of minority activities and sports, unless you know it exists you are unaware of the benefits it can bring. So few women were known to be playing disc golf. The UKWDGA was formed to build upon the successes of the first ever UK Women's Disc Golf Bag Tag League (known to us now as the Original Bag Tag League), a play anywhere any time League, and the Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA) Women's Global Events (WGE), held in England and Scotland in 2021.
The work undertaken by Founder members, Carole Findlay and Zoë Woodward increased awareness and demonstrated there was a need for a female focused community of disc golfers to help increase participation and raise awareness of the physical and mental health benefits of this low impact, get out in nature activity.
The UK Women's Disc Golf Association (UKWDGA) was formed in 2021 with the idea of establishing a strong female community with the opportunity to make a difference on how disc golf evolved, with women's needs in mind. Run by women for women. The objectives of the UKWDGA is to provide a platform for the sustainable growth of disc golf for all UK Nations and beyond, by raising awareness through promotional campaigns, applying for funding opportunities and sponsorship to further the growth and support for all female players through a variety of events.
