University Clubs

Here in Brighton we’re fortunate to have two local universities (Brighton & Sussex).  Sussex graduates (the Hawks) founded Brighton Ultimate in 2004.  Brighton Uni’s frisbee team (the Panthers) began in around 2007, and have been growing in size ever since.

  • Sussex Hawks

    Founded in 1986 the Mohawks have ten outdoor Uni championships to their name and two indoor.  They are coached by Brighton Ultimate players and as a club consistently have players representing GB at youth and senior level. Website:

  • Brighton Panthers

    The Panthers may have only started existence in 2006 but are already producing some exceptional players; including GB representatives.  Their graduates also play in the various BU club teams at top level tournaments in the UK. Website:

Brighton Club Teams

Brighton Ultimate can boast sending more teams to tour than any other club.  We employ an umbrella organisational structure, one that allows team captains to manage their own team whilst we take care of the admin aspects: entering tour, insurance, facilitating communications, etc.  These are the Brighton teams this season:

  • Brighton City (Open)

    The currently top performing Open (majority men’s) Club team from Brighton, there is a trial process for prospective players which happens early in the calendar year. City train every week in Preston Park during the season, with the aim of consistently performing as high as possible at the UK National Championships, and the European Club Championships (if they qualify from Nationals). They have finished consistently in the top 8 at Nationals for around a decade, reaching heights of 3rd place on two occasions.

    Brighton City can be contacted via Joshua “Geezer” George, Joe Butler, or James Wotherspoon.

  • Brighton Women

    Brighton Women’s team caters for all women based in and around Brighton regardless of ability or experience. We welcome both those who want to train competitively and those who love to socialise . The season is split into two; initially we look to promote the development of women’s in Brighton through weekly training sessions and adhoc weekends, then the latter part of the season is focused on building a competitive team for the tournament season.

    Brighton Women can be contacted via Hannah Brew or Megan Hurst.

  • Brighton Breezy (Mixed)

    Breezy has been Brighton’s premier mixed team for the last few years, consistently finishing high up in the mixed tour and at nationals. During trials held in January Breezy look to recruit athletes who are passionate about playing mixed from the ultimate community both in Brighton, and beyond. In 2015 they finished 3rd at UKU Nationals.

    If you are interested in training with or joining Brighton Breezy, contact James Wotherspoon through Facebook.

  • Brighton Legends (Open)

    Brighton Legends is largely made up from players who competed with Brighton Ultimate around 2004-2012, reaching the heady heights of European Mixed Club Champions 2009. They regularly make the final of SE Regionals, and have finished in the top 8 of Nationals before. The team is invite-only, but if you think you have a shot at an invite then contact Tom White or James Houghton (by scanning through the BU Facebook group members if you don’t already have a contact for them).

  • Cosmic Manatees (Mixed)

    Cosmic Manatees have a not-so-serious approach to ultimate, and have been entering Mixed Tour and Beach Nationals since around 2016, with a loose invite-only policy to new players. They can be contacted via Adam King and Rachel Clark.

Sussex Youth

Sussex Youth is a club for any young people around Sussex and below the age of 20 to play Ultimate frisbee. We will hold training days and enter tournaments around the U.K. It will be a great chance to improve your skills and also meet other young players in the South East. All levels of experience including beginners welcome.

The aim is to provide an opportunity for young people that do not have a club in their school or college and want the chance to train and compete with players of a similar age. We also want to support and connect schools which have already started Ultimate.

Sussex Youth will be working closely with Brighton Ultimate and both Sussex and Brighton Universities.

If you are having trouble getting in touch with any of the above teams, get in touch with BU via the Contact page.
