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.
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 women and men), a 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, 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 enforce the rules and decide the best way to solve on-field issues.
The Wits Ultimate Club participates in three major tournaments each year: Binnelanders, Mixed Nationals, as well as Men’s and Womexn’s Nationals, and Rocktober. 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, Potch, and Stellies) also send teams to the tournaments.
Practices take place on a Monday and Thursday, whilst Friday is a social gathering where we play for fun – and bragging rights. All practices take place on the “Bozz B” field (right below the Walter Milton Oval). So feel free to drop by on any given Monday or Thursday (at 18h30) and Friday (at 16h30). We also have our own clubroom which is often open for club members who just want to chill or play some table tennis. So come throw a disc with us, join the family and take your normal Frisbee skills to the next level!
