ultimate frisbee

hello, we are the essex blades ultimate frisbee club

Ultimate Frisbee is a fast paced sport played between two male, female or mixed teams, with 5 players per team indoors and 7 players per team outdoors. It combines aspects of many different sports such as American football, football and netball. At any time one team is on offence trying to work the disc up the field to catch it in the opposing team's endzone while the other team tries to block or catch it. A drop or catch by the opposing team results in a turnover of play and you cannot move when holding the disc.

Men's 1st Team - BUCS South Eastern 2B
Women's 1st Team
