What is Ultimate Frisbee?

Ultimate Frisbee is a self-refereed non-contact team sport and one of the fastest growing sports in the UK. It is played both indoors and outdoors (grass and beach) making it perfect all year-round! There are 3 divisions: Open (Men's), Women's and mixed. If you've never heard of Ultimate Frisbee, check out this introductory video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEKnqFBajiI&t=8s.
