Ultimate Frisbee is a non-contact sport played by passing the disc between players, with points being scored by catching the disc in the opposition team's endzone like in American Football. Players in possession of the disc cannot move but the rest of the team are almost always in motion, demanding athleticism, speed and stamina. Ultimate Frisbee is a truly mixed sport, with men and women competing on the same playing field, although we also compete in separate Open and Women's divisions as well. The sport is self-refereed, ensuring a mutual respect between opponents and an excellent social scene. Almost all of our players had never played (or in some cases even heard) of Ultimate Frisbee before coming to university, but Imperial regularly competes in the top national competitions in addition to tournaments in the first term designed specifically for beginners. After practice in Hyde Park we socialise in the Union, and a typical tournament weekend consists of playing hard on the Saturday, partying hard in the evening and playing harder on the Sunday! With links to some of the best clubs in London, a number of our team also play for some of the top teams in the UK.
