A fun, co-ed pre-occupation, Ultimate Frisbee combines American football and netball. It has all the athleticism and competition of any sport, but with the fun and laughter of hanging around with your friends. A sport that involves co-ed teams, athleticism, spirit of the game, banter, great socialising and an awesome community across disciplines and universities. On Fridays we have a social game while Mondays involves more serious practices. Come throw a disc with us, join the family and take your normal Frisbee skills to the next level.
Ultimate Frisbee? How does that differ from just throwing a Frisbee around? We get asked that a lot. Ultimate Frisbee is a sport (yes, a real sport, and recently recognised by the International Olympic Committee) that incorporates netball and American football – without the tackles. It consists of two teams (consisting of ladies and gentlemen), a high-tech plastic disc and a full field with two end zones, with the object of the game being to score by catching the disc in the opponent’s end zone. Of course, ninja catches, cool jumps, huge throws, and banter are involved.
What makes this sport not only fun and fantastic, but unique as well is that Ultimate Frisbee is a self-governed sport. In other words, there is no referee that will rig the game against you; instead, the players on the field decide the best way to solving on-field issues.
The “Wits’ Voodoo Kudus” participate in two major tournaments each year: Mixed Nationals and Roctober. Both of these tournaments offer an amazing opportunity to not only compete against the best in the country but to meet new people as there are more than 16 active and competitive clubs across the country. Other Universities (UCT, TUKS, and Stellies) also send teams to both tournaments.
Practices take place on a Monday, whilst Friday is a social gathering where we play for fun – and bragging rights. All practices take place on either the Walter Milton cricket oval or the “Bozz B” field right below it. So feel free to drop by on any given Monday (at 18h00) or Friday (at 16h30). We also have our own clubroom which is opened on demand after the Friday session. We will be having scheduled parties throughout the year at the clubroom.
We will not expect you to join up immediately or pay anything at all if you just want to try it out (like a free trial). Unlike most ball sports, a frisbee won’t bite!
