To increase numbers a little, we've reduced the price for the last 4 nights of DUFF Flatball league to $20. You just need a white and a black shirt and some jogging shoes (it's on netball courts). Give it a go! We'll have a big party on the last night of league, August 17th.

Please register before playing


DUFF Flatball is played according to the following rules:
 
 
(Don't forget to tap the disc on the floor when you score!)
 
and (where applicable), the standard rules of Ultimate:http://rules.wfdf.org/rules/ultimate
 
With the following changes/additions:
 
- We use the netball post semi-circle as our "Endzone" for scoring.
Defence:
    - Players must try to "closely cover" an opposition player at all times.  Zone Defence is allowed, but good Zone still means covering a player.
    - No more than 3 seconds in the end zone for all players (this discourages advanced players "poaching" the small space of the endzone).
    - There is no strict penalty or enforcement for the two rules above.  As with all rules in Ultimate, they are self-assessed and fall under Spirit of the Game.
Stoppages: since we play "continuous" (no stoppage after a point is scored), the following stoppages can be called:
    - "Injury" - if someone has fallen or hurt themselves.
    - "Violation" or "Foul" if your movement is impeded by contact orpotential contact with another player.  All players must attempt to avoid physical contact.  Contact does not have to occur for a dangerous play foul to be called, see rule 17.1:http://rules.wfdf.org/rules/ultimate/fouls
    - "Time out" can be called when the disc is "dead" (out of bounds or on a turnover or violation) for a quick break if the opposition agrees (teams agree on how long), eg if play is breaking down because of fatigue, or teams need to agree on the score.

You're competing to win your name on the coveted new Flatball trophy created by President Greg "G-Money" McGarry, as well as some of this other bling:



We've got space for 65 players (3 netball courts x 6 teams), and 30 have locked it in already, so don't wait too long!

Register-register!


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.
