Ultimate Frisbee

Southampton Skunks are the University of Southampton's Ultimate Frisbee club. We are super friendly and have men's, women's and mixed teams so whether you just want to chuck a frisbee around with some mates or you're looking to compete nationally at tournaments, come along and give our sport a try!

Overview of the sport:

Ultimate frisbee is a super fun, fast-paced, non-contact, team sport played all year round. Like a cross between netball and rugby, the frisbee can be thrown in any direction but players cannot run whilst holding the frisbee and points are scored by catching the frisbee in an ‘endzone’ (like a rugby try area). Turnovers occur when the disc goes out of bounds, is dropped or intercepted and games finish after reaching a score cap (often 15 points) or a set time (e.g. an hour).

Competing:

The sport has a mixed category as well as separate men’s and women’s divisions for both indoor (nice and warm in the winter!) and outdoor (bigger pitches = even more space to launch that disc!) so our top players can potentially play in four national tournaments a year! The outdoor BUCS season includes regular fixtures for the men’s and women’s teams home and away throughout the first semester.

We’re not exclusively competitive either: our club often has around 60 members! The majority of us actually prefer throwing a frisbee with some friends on the common or a chilled house-crawl social than the tournaments.

Trainings:

To reflect this huge breadth in our sport we have loads of training sessions varying from more informal and fun to more serious coaching aimed at competing nationally.

Whether you’re a human golden retriever (just looking for friends and a run around) or an ex national rugby player for your school (perhaps wanting something equally competitive but a lot less injury inducing!) you'll always be welcome in our club!
