Spin me thrice and I end like this
Thrice more and I end with meat
Once more and I end with a stinger
Thus spun all around,
I'm played with by flingers

What am I?

You are a:

FRISBEE!

Spin me thrice and I end like this

If we 'spin' (i.e. cycle through) the letters three times, moving them from the back to the front, we achieve BEEFRIS, which ends in 'IS' like 'this'.

Thrice more and I end with meat

Three more and we get RISBEEF, which ends in 'BEEF' (a meat).

Once more and I end with a stinger

One more: back to FRISBEE (a BEE is a stinger).

Thus spun all around,
I'm played with by flingers

This last move completes the cycle - our word has now been 'spun all around', echoing how a real Frisbee is tossed about by people throwing it from one to another (also echoed by the title imagery).
