Ten years ago today, Tom Leitner launched frisbee.com. It was a smart move for him to reserve the domain for use by disc athletes before corporate interests realized how valuable it could be.
Frisbee.com was the first and most important freestyle website, gathering together historical data on tournaments, providing locations for jams and jammers and keeping the sport updated while we all caught up technologically. Over the years, Tom has fended off the occasional challenge to the ownership of the frisbee.com domain and luckily for us, his enthusiasm for the project has continued. Ten years later, there are dozens of freestyle websites, each with its own personality, each with a specialty, but almost all of them were inspired by one common ancestor – frisbee.com.
Happy 10th birthday, frisbee.com.
