Played in many colder climates around the world, Indoor Ultimate is a discipline in its own right, and known for fast-paced, short games full of exciting, crazy overhead throws and pin-point foot placement scoring.  We're taking it outside.

By popular demand, DUFF has started a new league under floodlights on Moore Park Netball courts (very close to our summer league location, just down Anzac Parade).  This will provide a Monday night south-of-the-bridge option for you keen disc-throwers, as well as our regular social haunts such as the Captain Cook and Bat and Ball hotels...

For all the details, check out the league page.

FAQ: What Ultimate Can I Play Over Winter??

Sadly, DUFF won't be hosting a league on weeknights this winter.  Despite our best efforts, no fields were available with floodlights in the Eastern Suburbs, City or Inner West.  All is not lost!  Read below for all the awesome Ultimate you can play in the coming months.  There is something for beginners, intermediate and advanced players.
 

Keep It Social!

The best way to connect with other DUFF players and find a team for the Winter Series, or simply organise a pickup game or a throw around, is to join the DUFF Facebook Group. If you do one thing, do that!

Pick-up Games

Pick-up = Casual, no-strings-attached, fun, social Ultimate.  And it's free!

They're all really welcoming to any players and we think they're the best way for newcomers and visitors to get a taste of Sydney Ultimate and meet some regular players.

The Coogee Beach game is on almost every Sunday evening year round at the moment and the Glebe Tuesday night is taking off again.  Check out:

FAQ

I'm a brand new player.  How do I get my free disc?

Our league commissioner, Greg McGarry, will introduce himself on the first night of league.  You can collect your disc from Greg.

Can I try it for free?

Unfortunately, no.  We're launching straight into the season this time.  Brand new players are still welcome, and you can improve your skills and try Ultimate for free at our Thursday coaching sessions (see above).

Can I bring my friend along for one night?

No "pickup" or one-off players will be allowed at this league.  All players must be paid-up league members.  This is for insurance purposes and to aid administrators.

Where do we go after the game?

Generally we go to the Captain Cook Hotel, 162 Flinders Street, Paddington.  There are food and drink specials and, if you're lucky, hugs from Frosty the bar manager.
