Ultimate Frisbee is a fast-paced, non-contact team sport that's either played indoor 5v5 or outdoor 7v7 with a flying disc (Frisbee).
The rules of the game are quite simple:
- You can't walk or run when you're holding the disc.
- Points are scored when the disc is caught inside the end-zone.
- If the disc hits the ground, the other team gain possession regardless of who touched it last.
- The disc can be intercepted, or caught outside the pitch, to cause a turnover of possession.
- The teams change ends after each point.
- Play resumes when the scoring team from the previous point "pulls" the disc to their opposition.
- Unlimited substitutions can be made at the end of each point.
Something that's slightly different is that Ultimate has no referees, so players will have to decide on fouls and violations amongst themselves. Because of this, Ultimate players are some of the most friendly, honest, and well-spirited sportspeople.
Our club is very welcoming, no matter your skill level - from never holding a disc before to outplaying the most experienced player on our team.
Curently, Ultmate Frisbee can offer two different memberships: Social and competitive.
The social membership allows you to come to trainings and our many socials throughout the year at the price of £10.
The competitive membership includes trainings, socials and competitive matches/leagues that allow you to compete in fixtures for London Universities Sports Leagues (LUSL), British Universities and Colleges Sports (BUCS), and Varsity Matches. This is just at the price of £20!!
Your membership fee will go towards the smooth running of the club which includes travel and new equipment. We are a very open and dedicated club that is excited to invite and welcome new players to join us this year and become stronger as teammates and as friends.
During the year, the club takes part in many activities. Typically, we have training sessions two times a week with a regular post-training stop at The Happy Man.
Other Socials we could have throughout the year includes pub quizzes, game nights, a Christmas dinner, and more!
During the first term, we compete in BUCS tournaments as a mixed and mens indoor team. In second term we compete against our alumni members and in Varsity; we also raise awareness for Cameron Grant Memorial Trust for mental health illness as we want to commemorate one of our alumni players.
Our club is still very new and is always creating new events and ideas that makes the atmosphere of our club very spirited and open-minded.
Membership doesn't need to be paid upfront before coming to training, however, a Sports Pass needs to be purchased prior to coming to training. The Sports Pass (link) is used to track and trace who comes to training.
Additionally, you'll need to book a spot for training on the Eleisure page (link) (maximum capacity of 30 people) - bookings will be available 48 hours before the session.
*Sports pass rules might've changed this year... TBD*
The committee is really excited to welcome new players to our club and if you have any questions, feel free to contact us privately on our Instagram (rh_ultimate) or Facebook (Royal Holloway Ultimate Frisbee) accounts or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond as quickly as possible!
