Key Information

Ultimate, also known as ultimate frisbee, is a self-refereed, non-contact team sport played with a flying disc. Ultimate can be played both indoors and outdoors, with some technical and tactical differences between the two, and university clubs can compete in both men’s, women’s and mixed gender divisions.

The student ultimate competition year runs across October to March with beginner tournaments, weekend regional and national competitions, men’s BUCS league Wednesdays as well as other recreational events across the country. Everyone from complete novices to world-class players will find something suitable!
