Croydon plays host to the current disk golf world champions this weekend.

Brother and sister Avery and Valarie Jenkins, as well as former champion Nate Doss, will be the star players at this year’s Croydon Cyclone tournament in Lloyd Park.

The tournament is the eighth leg of the British Disk Golf Association British tour, and takes place over the weekend of September 5 and 6.

In total, 72 players will be coming to Croydon from all around the country to take part.

Avery, Valarie and Nate will also be providing demonstration lessons for anyone interested in taking up the sport or honing their skills.

Disk golf involves throwing a disk into a basket across a course in the fewest throws.

It has enjoyed a rise in popularity thanks in some part to its inclusion in computer games such as Nintendo Wii Beach Sports and Tiger Woods PGA golf.

Croydon’s Lloyd Park course is unique in the UK, being the only one that is free to play and open to all at all times.

Richard Wood, chairman of the Croydon club said: “Disk golf is a fantastic sport that anyone can get involved in.

“It’s cheap to get started – you only need three disks – and once you have given it a try you’ll soon be hooked.”
