Brighton Ultimate

Ultimate has been played in Brighton for over 20 years. The Sussex University team Hawks, set up in 1986, are one of the longest-running teams in the country and have achieved the highest honour of winning the student national Open and Women’s championships on multiple occasions. More recently, a Brighton University team – the Panthers – have appeared and are going from strength to strength.

Brighton Ultimate as a club oversees the development of Ultimate in Brighton & Hove, running practice sessions through the year, organising socials, and helping Brighton-based teams enter Tour (we regularly have four Open and two Women’s BU-affiliated teams entering) and international tournaments.

Our Mission Statement

The BU club aims to encourage and develop all levels of Ultimate in Brighton by:

  1. providing opportunities for local players to play in regular pick-up games, attend coached sessions, and participate in league events,
  2. working together with the council and other organisations to introduce the game to beginners,
  3. providing a forum where the captains of the various Brighton teams – University and non-University alike – in various divisions can communicate openly with each other and cooperate for mutual benefit,
  4. supporting all teams and players as and when they need it, for example by but not limited to: fronting fees for developing teams entering Tour, and subsidising elite teams entering international competitions.
