Ultimate Frisbee Club

What is Ultimate Frisbee?

Ultimate Frisbee (or just 'Ultimate') is a sport played a bit like a cross between netball (you can't run with the disc) and American football (you score by catching the disc in the endzone). It's played on a field the size of a football pitch, with seven people on each team.

One of the key features is that it's self-refereed - players make their own decisions about the rules. A general overview of the rules can be found on the Wikipedia page. The full rules are outlined on the WFDF website.


The Club and College League

Churchill College has one of the largest and most successful college league teams in the University. College league is contested each term by about 16 mixed-gender teams, and Churchill usually enters at least two; equal skill level Alpha and Beta in Michaelmas, to get everyone playing, and then a first and second team, Chillies and Tossers, in Lent and Easter. A one-day tournament for all the teams, Cuppers, is held twice a year, at the ends of the Michaelmas and Easter terms.

More information about College League can be found on the Strange Blue website (SB is the University team, with which every college team is closely affiliated - many of the best Churchill players compete with SB).
