While Club Nationals offers up a very similar team list every year with mainstays like Fury and Ironside, Beach Nationals — now in its second year — allows for a great deal of creativity with its hybrid blend of competitive ultimate with laid-back beach vibes.
Here, we rank the team names from across all divisions at Beach Nationals. We’ll start with the worst.
This tier is rife with boring names and try-hards, and occasionally boring try-hards.
And The Warhawks
Weekend With Bernie
Yetis On The Beach
No Tsu Oh
Point Break LA
First In Flight
Over The Hill
Shostakovich (And The Angry Buddha)
Paranoia (They can move up to Tier 2 with Harvey Danger jerseys)
Somerville Youth (Actual youths and that’s just funny)
Baltimore Flatball Club
Opig (I get it, but not impressed)
The Bends (Probably an underrated part of the Radiohead catalog, but still weaker than the best stuff)
Sharks & Kisses (I want to like this, but I just don’t)
Midrift (The right ensemble could really set this off)
The Kevin Seiler Experience
Beaches & Cream
Danger Bay (I’m probably biased by thinking of Archer)
Get Off My Lawn!
Ye Olde Boxcar
Gruntled (This should be a club name)
Ampersand (I can see this one being divisive. I like the word and the pun.)
Beach Please (Simple. Too simple? No. Just right.)
Believeland (Only works if they are from Cleveland. We assume they are.)
Locals (Different type of humor than Beach Please, but same strengths.)
Bottomless Brunch (Probably the best name.)
Rockford Beaches (Multiple levels of goodness here.)
