The basic rules of Ultimate Frisbee are straightforward. The field is split into three parts, with the two end zones being the areas in which points are scored. The team in possession of the disc must catch the frisbee in the opposite end zone. Those holding the frisbee cannot run with it, and therefore it is a dynamic game relying heavily on communication, running and handling.
A mixture of both experienced and newer players, the BUCS tournament offered an opportunity for building self-confidence and gelling the team. Led by captain, Izzy Retout, the women’s team relied predominantly on zone defence, wherein there are designated spaces in which players defend rather than specific people. However, considering the windy conditions, they were adaptable to match mark or change up their offensive strategies to earn their formidable wins.
The Women’s Team now heads into Indoor Regionals on the 27th and 28th of November in Nottingham.
