Coming up in February, and following on from the success of last year’s Draft League (BUDL), is the Brighton Ultimate Draft Indoor Tournament (BUDIT)!
What: Brighton Ultimate Draft Indoor Tournament (Mixed, depending on numbers)
Where: BACA Sports Centre, Falmer
When: 15/16/17th February 2013 (Friday evening to Sunday)
Who: You! Individual players sign up and are picked by team captains on Draft Night – expecting minimum 8 teams, max 16, 6-8 players per team.

Players sign up individually, and will be picked by one of the captains on Draft Night – held in a pub in Brighton on Friday evening just before the weekend. Saturday games start late (12:40pm), after the games we’ll meet in the Druids and see where things go from there (night out in Brighton!), then Sunday morning more games & finals to decide the BUDIT Champions!
Between 3rd and 10th of July, Brighton Ultimate’s Mixed team will be in Prague in the Czech Repubic to take part in the 2010 World Ultimate Club Championships (WUCC). Hosted every 4 years, the World Ultimate Club Championships bring together the top ranking teams from around the world in 4 divisions – Open (mens), Womens, Mixed (a ratio of 3:4 men:women or women:men on the pitch), and Masters (over 33 years old). WUCC 2010 will be bringing together a total 136 teams (approximately 3000 players) from 37 countries.
In the last 12 months, Brighton Ultimate have won both the UK National Mixed Division Championships and the European Mixed Division Championships, and are consequently the highest-seeded European team in the WUCC Mixed division – seeded 7th out of 40 teams. Over the course of 7 days, Brighton will play around ten 90-minute games. Updates on Brighton’s results throughout the tournament (and hopefully some comments from players) will be posted here on the website and on our Twitter feed. You can also keep up to date with other WUCC news and results on Twitter by following the #wucc2010 tag.
You can hear captain James Houghton talking about Ultimate and the upcoming World Championships on BBC Radio Sussex, and see a couple of short local BBC news clips on our Media page.
If you’re interested in finding out more about Ultimate or want to give it a try, we always welcome new players to our practice sessions (even if you can barely throw a frisbee!). Check out our New Player page to find more info on how Ultimate works and how you can get involved!
