Ultimate is not quite the same as throwing a Frisbee for your dog in the park. It is a fast-paced team sport enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of players all over the world. It is one of the most unique and quickly growing sports today.
The game is played with a flying disc (or Frisbee™) which is passed between team members until a pass is completed inside the opponent's end zone to score a point. The sport has no referees: players have to decide on fouls and violations amongst themselves, which helps make Ultimate players some of the most friendly, honest and well-spirited sports people. Teams are made up of 7 players (outdoors) or 5 players (indoors/beach) and can be men’s, women’s or mixed.
Royal Holloway's Team, known as Holloway Ultimate (HU?) are a very welcoming, friendly club. Most people have never played Ultimate before joining us and we will help you improve rapidly. The club also has an active social side and a great atmosphere around the club as well as providing opportunities to get involved with fundraising and volunteering. We compete in both the London Universities Sports Leagues (LUSL) as a mixed team, as well as competing regionally in British Universities and Colleges Sports (BUCS) as a men's indoors team and a mixed indoors team. Both allow us to travel for fixtures as well as hosting games on our campus!
£15 Standard Membership: Allows attendance to trainings, socials and friendly games/ tournaments.
Competetive membership will not be available this term but typically allows you to compete in LUSL league, BUCS indoor tournaments and in Varsity matches.
Our pub of choice is the Happy Man, and we usually head there at the end of a training session. We host socials on campus, such as games nights and impromptu throwabouts, as well as heading off campus occasionally for some disc golf. Additionally we organise christmas and end of year meals.
