Ultimate is a fast-moving, non-contact, self-refereed team sport played with a flying disc, enjoyed by close to 10 million players worldwide.
Two teams of seven players compete on a playing field about the same length as a football field, but narrower. At each end of the playing field there is an end zone. Each team defends one endzone. They score a goal if one of their players catches the disc in the opposite end zone. The player with the disc is called the thrower. The thrower may not run with the disc. Instead they move the disc by passing to team-mates in any direction. The defensive team gets possession of the disc if an offensive team’s throw is not caught by a player of the same team. Then the defensive team becomes the offensive team and can try to score in the opposite end zone.

To compete at the highest level, Ultimate players require speed, agility and endurance. Yet beginners find the game easy to learn and fun to play. Grab a disc, get out there, and discover why many think this is the ultimate team sport
Ultimate is currently vying for a place in the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics having narrowly lost out in the voting for the 2020 & 2024 events. In the UK we boast an active 20,000 strong player base with teams all over the country. GB are the reigning Mixed and Men’s European Champions and we are ranked 3rd in the world.
