Welcome to Aberdeen University Ultimate (AUU)!
Whether you have never touched a frisbee before, thrown it casually with your friends, or have played before, Aberdeen University Ultimate is the club for you. We cater to all levels and abilities, with the majority of our members involved in the club having never heard of the sport before university. Alongside our training we enter tournaments throughout the year, ranging from beginner tournaments to regional, national, and international competitions against other universities. We also host a variety of socials throughout the year, ranging from potlucks to flat crawls, to bowling nights, with these events happening once every two weeks.
If this sounds like something you’re interested in, come to one of our trainings or message us on social media to find out more and experience the sport!
What is Ultimate?
Ultimate Frisbee is an exciting, flexible, and easy-to-play sport and perfect for anyone looking to try a new sport. The sport is a non-contact team sport with each team aiming to score points by catching the disc in the opposition’s end zone. The sport can be played both indoors and outdoors (both on grass and the beach), with teams consisting of women only, men only, and mixed teams.

What does it cost?
Our membership costs are some of the cheapest in the university, with each semester’s membership costing £15. However, membership is not required in the first three/four weeks of each semester to allow anyone to play for free, learn the sport, and decide whether they want to continue.
We provide all training equipment such as discs and cones. The only things we ask you to bring are a good pair of shoes for running that you won’t slip in; a bottle of water; and (preferably) a light and dark T-shirt/sports jersey.
