About the club
The Ultimate Club (Flatball) is consistently one of the strongest in the UK, despite hailing from one of the smallest universities. We are recognised as a Performance Sport by the University, and this incredible support is reflected in our results, with both our Men’s and Women’s teams having won UK University Nationals – the men as recently as 2017. Our 2nd teams are consistently some of the top 2nd teams in Scotland or even in the UK, and our beginner teams have won more than half the tournaments they have entered over the past few years.
More recently we placed 2nd outdoor and 4th indoor (both division 1) for our men’s team in 2018, and 2nd outdoor and 8th indoor in 2019. Our women’s team are also incredibly strong, winning the Scottish region indoors this season!
We achieve all this with many people who have never played before arriving in St Andrews. Our internationally renowned coach Benji Heywood will help you develop your skills, with many complete beginners going on to play for Great Britain by the time they graduate. We are also lucky enough to have 2 assistant coaches with us this year – Oli Browne (GB masters mixed) and Rachel Turton (GB mixed, Ultiworld mixed all-Europe line 2019). Whether you are an experienced player or a total novice, whether you want to compete at the highest level or just play for fun, we’ll give you the chance to be part of our amazing family.
If you are looking to try something new, make some new friends, and play some competitive Ultimate, we would love to hear from you. Check out our website for more information, and feel free to get in touch through social media or with Benji himself.
