Members of Bunbury Ultimate Frisbee are bringing their A-Game to this year's Mooovin' the Groove, on Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19.

During the two-day tournament, competitors will take part in both Ultimate frisbee and KanJam frisbee.

Participants will come together on Saturday night for the club's social event at the Indi Bar.

The event will then draw to a close with a presentation ceremony.

Bunbury Ultimate Frisbee member Eilish Warnock, 15, said the competition helped to promote the sport around the state.

"I love the friendly atmosphere of the sport," she said.

"As part of this club, I get to talk to other people and have some fun.

"It's an annual tournament, so we have a lot of players who come up or come down to Bunbury each year.

"It's a great competition because there are so many teams."

Since taking up the sport, Eilish has represented the club, Western Australia, and Australia across a variety of competitions.

She played for Australia's Under 20 side in the World Junior Ultimate Championships in Canada last year.

Eilish recently received Regional Athlete Travel Subsidy Scheme funding, allowing her to compete in this year's U18 National Ultimate Championships in Queensland.
