Brighton Ultimate Summer Hat League – sign ups now open!

BU is excited to announce that sign ups are now open for our first round of Summer Hat league! Everyone is welcome, whether you’re a veteran or a complete beginner.

Hat format, 5-a-side

Mixed & Open divisions

Mondays, 7pm – 8.40pm

12th June – 3rd July

1 x 30 minute game each week, minimum

Wild Park, off Lewes Road

£8 player fee

The league will run on Mondays for 4 weeks (12th June – 3rd July), and each week, you’ll get a minimum of 1 x 30 minute game, played between 7pm and 8.40pm, at Wild Park, off Lewes Road (map link at the bottom of this post!).

A hat league means we draw the teams randomly (but with a spread of experience across every team) – this means you’ll get to meet (and compete against!) a variety of people from across the Brighton Ultimate community. We’re aiming to run 2 divisions in our first round of summer hat league this year: mixed and open. In the mixed division, each team will field 2 or 3 women for each point (as per WFDF 2017 rules); in the open division, there are no gender restrictions.

For each division, there will be:
– winners medals
– a prize for the most spirited team
– League MVP prizes (as voted by the teams)

Sign up now!

The player fee will be £8 for each division you want to play in (you can sign up for both, if you like). We’ll ask you to pay this fee after you complete the sign up form.

For insurance reasons, you will need Brighton Ultimate membership (£10/£5) and UK Ultimate membership (basic: £5) to play in the league. These memberships will cover you for subsequent leagues and trainings as well, until the end of September. If you’re coming to club trainings on Mondays, training with one of the teams on Wednesday or Thursday, or playing at tour, you should have these already!

Entry deadline: Saturday 10th June, 5pm.
Payment deadline (incl. BU & UKU membership): Sunday 11th June, 5pm.

You can get BU membership via the website here.

You can get UKU membership via the UKU site here.

Are you a complete beginner? Why not head down to our Monday night session at Wild Park on June 5th, 6.45pm – 8.30pm, to get an introduction to the game – we’ll have a dedicated beginners coach at this training, ready to get you started! We’ll also have one of our coaches running a short taster session on Monday 12th June, 6.30pm to 7.15pm (before the first game), to introduce the basics for any beginners in the league, and your new teammates will also be happy to help!
