Welcome to the University of Nottingham Ultimate Club
Ultimate is a fast paced limited-contact sport which is rapidly increasing in popularity. We compete in Men's, Women's and Mixed divisions (see our competitions page for more info) and aim to cater to the full range of players. We offer fun commitment free sessions aimed at teaching fundamentals, as well as high intensity sessions as we aim to compete amoung the best teams in the country.
What is Ultimate?
Ultimate is an exciting, limited-contact team sport played by thousands all over the world in both single gender and mixed gender divisions, at levels ranging from recreational to the World Games. The objective of the game is for a team to score more goals than their opponent, by completing passes into an endzone. Meanwhile players on the opposing team will attempt to block or intercept any passes made. Ultimate is self-officiated at all levels; this means that players pledge to be fair, honest and must resolve any on pitch disputs themselves. Below is an infographic highlighting some of the key rules.
