Men's Ultimate Frisbee
Ultimate is a fun, fast-paced and competitive sport. Our club performs well in BUCS and in national tournaments, with our Men’s 1st team coming 2nd in the BUCS League last year. We have 2 regular training sessions a week for all our members, plus extra training for those wanting to play for one of our first or second teams. We enter in tournaments all over the country and have incredible socials every Wednesday too. Ultimate is an up and coming sport that is great to start at University. You can join to play competitive sport, keep fit or just have the opportunity to enjoy the social aspect – we cater for all!
How to get involved
Membership fee – £55
Please note that on top of the club fee there is a £16 fee that covers personal accident insurance when training or competing for the University, access to free cross-training sessions such as circuits and yoga, as well as a contribution to the costs of affiliation to various national governing bodies. This fee is only payable once so if you did decide to join a second club then you would not need to pay a second fee.

Successes and Achievements
Last year we had over 100 members. Every year we have both our men’s, women’s and mixed teams compete at both indoor and outdoor nationals which gives us the chance to compete against the best teams that universities have to offer. In 2019/20, our Men’s and Mixed teams won their Indoor Regional tournaments and all teams finished in at least the top-8 at Nationals. Men’s 1st team came 2nd in the Midlands BUCS league, and the women competed in the first Women’s Ultimate BUCS League. We had 5 students represent GB U24s in Germany at the 2019 World U24 Ultimate Championships.
