Ultimate Frisbee is a team sport that is open to anybody and welcomes complete beginners. Almost all of our players joined as complete beginners and many of these now play at Club level as well as University level, some of our members have even played for the Great Britain team.

Ultimate is easy to pick up and is non-contact, allowing competition between mixed teams. It is completely self-ruled, there are no referees and players make their own foul calls and settle disputes amongst themselves. This ‘spirit’ and fair play is one of the defining aspects of Ultimate Frisbee. The club also runs numerous socials throughout the year with a variety of different themes. Tournaments take place over weekends and frequently include tournament parties on the Saturday night. This provides a great opportunity to socialise with the teams from other universities. The same universities attend most tournaments and many players build strong friendships with those from other universities at these events.

The club enters many tournaments a year across the country with the indoor season taking place in the Michaelmas term and includes Men’s, Mixed and Women’s events. The Men’s outdoor team competes in BUCS Wednesday league games throughout the academic year with a nationals tournament in summer term. For women’s outdoor there is a regional qualifier tournament in Epiphany term followed by a national tournament in summer term. The mixed outdoor team compete in one large national tournament at the end of Epiphany term.

There are also 24 college teams that compete in the college league (3 divisions of 8 teams) and college cup on a weekly basis during Michaelmas and Epiphany terms as well as a one day tournament as part of the Festival of Sport in the summer term.
