What is DDC?
A competitive double disc sport we now call Escape!! (DDC - Double Disc Court). It is an exciting and intense doubles disc game in which your opponents are attacking your court with one or two discs at a time. Like doubles volleyball, except the the courts are spaced by 17m, and two discs are in play at all times. Discs must be thrown in your opponent's court, and caught and thrown back. If your team touches both discs at once, you lose 2 points (a double!) It is a lot of fun, mentally challenging, and physically active. If you like disc sports or want to learn, games are open to the public and listed on the calendar posted here.
More about the game of Escape!! / DDC
In DDC, the two discs are 110 gram frisbees. The Tallahassee DDC pod has been playing for several years. We invite people to join us. We usually play at Optimist Park (see where we play for maps) on Saturday or Sunday mornings, but also weekday evenings. Time/place varies with weather etc (see our Calendar for up to date plans).
This site has information about our pod (the local players), the sport and its rules and strategies, links to videos of our games, and information about upcoming DDC tournaments and related events.
New Players Welcome
The Tallahassee DDC pod has several nationally ranked players. As is typical for disc sports, DDC play is active and intense but built on good sportsmanship and the spirit of the game. We are glad to teach you the game, even if you've never played before. Come on out and give it a try.
In short, DDC is a disc version of beach volleyball two on two, but with two discs flying at once, space between the courts, and no net. Lots of crazy throws, tipping, burn shots, and even layouts. It's fun to learn, fast paced, and an all around excellent disc sport - once you get used to the official 110g discs (smaller than ultimate discs).
