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!

DUFF Winter Series: Save the Dates!

Location: Moore Park West

Event 1: Sunday 11th May 9:30-16:30
Event 2: Sunday 15th June 9:30-16:30
Event 3: Sunday 13th July 9:30-16:30
Event 4: Sunday 17th August 9:30-16:30

If we can't give you a weekly fix, we're going to make it some epic monthly Ultimate in Moore Park!  You'll be able to bring a team of friends from DUFF Summer League or anywhere else, and if you don't have a team we'll find you one.  We'll strive to make the standard inclusive for all players, from brand new to advanced.  A full day of Ultimate to keep you warm, then delicious dinner at the pub afterwards (with food and drink specials to boot!).

DUFF Mixed Squad and Beginner Training

Last year the DUFF Mixed team, "Duff Love" trained hard every Sunday all winter and competed at the NSW Mixed Ultimate Championships.  This year we have even bigger plans!  Visit the DUFF Mixed page for the sign up form and get involved. Everyone is welcome!!

We've had emails from a few of you wanting to start to learn to play Ultimate.  Welcoming beginners is one of DUFF's core objectives, and our amazing Coaching Coordinator Ed Law will be organising practice sessions for you (likely taking place before the Mixed Squad training) on weekends.

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:
