If you want to explore a new sport, Ultimate Frisbee is the one to try! Ultimate involves a lot of cardio and can be quite intense, but it’s also very newcomer friendly.
Ultimate is an exciting, mixed gender, non-contact team sport, played by thousands all over the world in Open, Mixed and Women’s teams. Ultimate is a fast-paced game, demanding its players to develop razor-sharp throwing skills and immense stamina and agility. The sport is self-refereed and promotes Spirit Of The Game (SOTG); this means players know the game and rules inside out and understand the meaning of fair play. Being self refereed requires opposing teams to respect and listen to each other when a call is made.
Aye-Aye is our club name, after the nocturnal primate which is our mascot! Much mystery surrounds the origin of this choice by the founders of the club. We have all learned to love these strange creatures and are always looking forward to welcoming new aye-ayes into the family.
Aye-Aye is a unique club because there is something for everyone. If you are the competitive type, there are plenty of serious and fun tournaments, for all ability levels, as well as our frequent BUCS fixtures. If you just want to come along for the ride, we have plenty of (infamous) socials and relaxed chuck-abouts.
You will meet lots of amazing people in our continuously expanding club!
We are known for our inclusive, friendly atmosphere, exemplified by our (often themed) socials, allowing the newcomers to make friends with the existing members and become integrated into the large closely-knit family that is Aye-Aye. Our plan for socials throughout the year is extensive, so come along and participate!
We enter competitive regional events which occur over weekends in the men's, women's and mixed divisions, which lead onto National events. Noticeably in 2018-2019 our Women's Indoor team came 3rd at Women's Indoor Nationals! There are also Men's and Women's BUCS fixtures on Wednesday afternoons (Men) and a Saturday each semester (Women's). We also enter fun and beginners tournaments, which are great for improving newcomer's frisbee skills (and partying prowess).
Aye-Aye Open (AAO) is our very own fun tournament, normally organised in the Spring. Anyone can play in this tournament because we are the hosts! Teams from all over the country come to the Sports-Park for some top quality indoor Frisbee played in themed outfits followed by a big social.
