Ultimate is a fast-moving team sport enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of players around the world. Although frequently compared to sports like soccer or American Football, Ultimate has some unique features that sets it apart. There are no referees. And it’s played with a flying disc.

What is it?
Firstly see our highights from last season:
Indoor Frisbee is played with 5 players per team in a standard sports hall, with an endzone at each end. The objective of the game is to score by catching a pass in the opponent's end zone. When in possession of the disc, the player must stop running but can pivot and pass to any other player. The player with the disc has 8 seconds in possession before they HAVE to make a throw.
Who are we?
Staffs aim to qualify for nationals and win varsity! We love to play competetivly on the pitch and then party hard off it and we have a range of playes from GB level to complete beginners! In the coming year we will enter several local tournaments and have fixtures against the likes of Keele University, Nottingham University, Loughborough University and many more!
Come and try it out!
This year is going to be the biggest year for Ultimate in the history of the game. The sport has recently been recognised by the International Olympic Commitee and hopefully when all the i's are dotted and t's are crossed, Ultimate Frisbee will be part of the 2020 Olympics.
