Welcome to Leeds University Ultimate Frisbee Club! Ultimate Frisbee is an enjoyable, friendly and sociable sports club, whilst also being a serious competitive sport. We regularly compete at regional and national level, as well as a series of annual fun beginner tournaments, so newcomers are always welcome.
Ultimate Frisbee (or simply 'Ultimate') is a fast paced, non-contact sport, played both indoors and outdoors, with a flying disc. It combines the best aspects of Football, Rugby, American Football and Basketball into one sport for men and women of any experience level, from complete beginner to expert. It is played by men’s, women’s and mixed teams all over the world and recognised by all major sporting bodies.
If you’re looking for a new sport to try at University, BUCS ranks us #1 as THE sport you should try, so why not come give it a try

We normally train at Weetwood. Opposite Lawnswood school:
- Wed: 2pm - 4pm - Normally Pick-up in Hyde Park (check facebook for details)

Take the number 1 or 6 northwards from the University. These buses stop on Otley Road next to Lawnswood School where you can walk down a short path which opens up onto the fields. Don't worry - in the first few weeks we'll have a few of the experienced players meet beginners at Parkinson steps at 1:25pm to make a group journey to training sessions. Safety in numbers and what not. For a map of how to find our fields once getting off the bus, click the image below

We play a number of mens, womens and mixed tournaments throughout the year including Regional and National BUCS events. The majority of October is reserved for Beginners tournaments that allow new players to compete againts other University beginner teams.
In addition to the tournaments there is an outdoor BUCS league so the team will compete in weekly fixtures on wednesdays between October and January
We also have club houses within the society which you will be placed in. These houses compete in an indoor, outdoor and social league. Points are awarded for wins and social competitions!
We hold a range of regular socials throughout the year. See our facebook group for information and updates about these.
We will be making a kit order towards the end of 2016, which we hope should give plenty of time for it to arrive before the outdoor season begins.
