About UK Ultimate

UK Ultimate (UKU) is the National Governing Body for the sport of ultimate in Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Ultimate has been growing steadily in the UK for many years, and players can be found across the whole country.


Internationally the UK continues to improve its standing – with national and club teams performing consistently well at European and World championship level.


As the National Governing Body, UK Ultimate is here to support, assist and encourage players and teams at all levels of this exciting sport. We phrase this commitment as follows:

UK Ultimate works towards the goal that everyone should have an excellent experience of Ultimate in the UK. We intend to lead and support the UK's development into the World's leading ultimate community. We will maintain and protect the Spirit of the Game as the underlying principle in everything we do.


How UKU works

In 2008, UK Ultimate (UKU) became a company limited by guarantee.  We are a not-for-profit organisation.

The members are effectively the “owners” of UK Ultimate, rather like the shareholders of a company, except that in particular the organisation cannot distribute any profits.

The members elect a Board of Directors to act on their behalf in looking after the interests of the organisation.

The Board in turn appoints a number of people and committees to take responsibility for various activities and/or areas within the sport.

Board of Directors

UK Ultimate Ltd is the governing body for the sport of Ultimate in the UK. UKU Ltd is a company limited by guarantee, accordingly Board members are company directors.

The Board’s role is summarised as follows:

  • Determine UKU Ltd’s mission and purpose ensuring that UKU Ltd complies with it’s governing document, company law and any other relevant legislation or regulations
  • Determine and monitor UKU Ltd’s activities and services – ensuring that appropriate practices and policies are in place, defining goals and setting targets
  • Appoint, support and review the performance of the CEO/Administrator and UKU Ltd as a whole against agreed targets ensuring effective and efficient administration of the organisation
  • Ensure the availability of adequate resources, approve annual budgets and ensure that UKU Ltd uses its resources exclusively in pursuance of its governing document and is financially stable
  • To protect and manage the property of the organisation and to ensure the proper investment of funds
  • Safeguard and enhance the public image of both the sport and the organisation
  • Assess its own performance and account to the members for the organisation’s performance
  • Serve as a Court of Appeal

Other duties

In addition to the above statutory duties, and role-specific responsibilities below, each Board member should use any specific skills, knowledge or experience they have to help the board reach sound decisions. This will involve:

  • Have regular access to email/internet and read email at least once a week (other than during planned absence).  Weekly email volume is less than one hour – but does increase around Board meetings
  • Attend Board conference calls (approx 6 calls per year) plus one face-to-face meeting and respond to correspondence within 5 working days
  • Read all emails posted on UKU Ltd Board e-group and UKU Ltd Member Updates
  • Scrutinising board papers
  • Leading discussions
  • Focusing on key issues
  • Providing guidance on new initiatives
  • Other issues in which the Board member has special expertise

There are up to eight elected positions on the Board as follows:


The chairperson is responsible for leading the Board:

  • Ensure regular board meetings/calls occur
  • Chair board meetings – and support/encourage activity and discussion between meetings
  • Ensure Board meetings are effective
  • Support, advise and manage the CEO/Administrator
  • Member of Remuneration committee

The Treasurer has overall responsibility for all UKU finances and budgets.  In particular the Treasurer should work with the CEO/Administrator to:

  • Supervise accounting
  • Authorise payment of UKU bills
  • Ensure tax obligations are met
  • Chair Remuneration committee
  • Member of Grants committee


Director of Competitions (DoC)
The DoC is responsible for planning the UK ultimate events calendar across all divisions and for coordinating all UKU events and the associated rules – including ensuring we have a clear strategy for the ongoing evolution of the national competition structure.
These activities should be done by leading two key groups of volunteers:

  • UKU Competitions Committee
  • UKU Scheduling Committee

The Director of Competitions’ role is to lead these groups to deliver “the calendar”, the UKU competition rules and the UKU competition structure.


University Coordinator
The Uni-Coordinator is responsible for University Competitions and promotion of student ultimate.  The role includes:

  • Chairing the Uni Coordinators Committee
  • Answering queries from student players
  • Ensuring AGM and e-AGM take place
  • Attend and chair AGM


Director for Safeguarding

The priorities and activities for the Director for Junior Ultimate have changed over the last 10-15 years and so we have updated the role to Director for Safeguarding, incorporating leadership for adult safeguarding in addition to the safeguarding of young people that are involved in our sport.  

Without Portfolio
The remaining positions on the Board are all "without portfolio" in order to offer an opportunity for individuals to propose and take a key role in an area that they feel is important.


A Vice-Chair is appointed from the without-portfolio board members:

  • Takes role of Chair when s/he is not available
  • Provides support to Chair when needed

Current Board Members

Current board members are:


Chairman: Graham Mynott

I started playing ultimate as a student at Southampton University in 1985, I still have the Glyn Lewis designed shirt still (a bit thin now mind). My main ultimate playing career in this country was with Catch 22 and LeedsLeedsLeeds on sand and grass, in domestic, european and world competitions: legendary times. I'm the proud owner of a gold medal from the Euros in 2003 representing the Masters (got the winning point disc as a memento too) and a bronze from the Turku Worlds the following year , although my first Masters foray was in Sweden back in 1996. I don't play any more apart from an annual trot at Glastonbury with the Catch family. My son's got the golden arm though.

My day job is as Chief Executive of Keyhouse a supported housing, advice and training charity based in Keighley in West Yorkshire - I've been running this charity, and before that another in Oldham for well over 10 years now and somewhere in there is the reason that Si Hill approached me to act as Chair when Jamie Cross was heading west. My work has always been based around housing and homelessness.

Treasurer: Wayne Davey

I started playing ultimate at Warwick in 1985. Since then I’ve played at all levels, in mixed, masters and open divisions and I’ve been lucky enough to play in World Championships on 5 continents. I have captained the GB Masters team several times on both grass and sand, including leading the team to success in the 2003 European Championships. I've also been on winning teams at UK Nationals in open, mixed and indoors. In 2011 I was part of the GB mixed masters team that won the World Beach Championships. Unfortunately, injury now limits my ultimate to 2 or 3 beach tournaments a year.

Off the field I have been the treasurer of UK Ultimate for the last 3 years or so. I was also the first treasurer of the UK Ultimate's predecessor organisation. While I have been on the Board I chaired the UKU Spirit of the Game Committee for 2 years. I also spent a couple of years on the BULA Beach Ultimate Committee.

Director of Safeguarding: Anna Trebble

Taking over this role within UKU from Joe, I would like to firstly thank him for all the years he has given to the role and know I have big shoes to fill. I have already been part of the uku safeguarding committee for the past year and a bit, therefore will hopefully rise to this next challenge.

I play for SYC in the women's division, I am a handler, and am more likely to be known as "trebbs" within a frisbee context. 

Outside of Frisbee I am an NHS Speech and Language Therapist. My work is varied, but I mostly work with children and young people who are either Autistic or who have profoundly complex medical/health needs all of whom require a special school environment to meet their educational needs. I am a dysphagia trained therapist, which means I support feeding/swallowing difficulties as well as communication. 

The children and young people I work with are often extremely vulnerable and therefore safeguarding and safeguarding practices are ingrained in what we do. I receive regular safeguarding supervision through work, have been involved in child protection conferences and am CRB checked for both children and adults. 


Director of Competitions: Chris White

I've been part of the competitions committee since 2008, starting as the Mixed Coordinator for 4 years and serving without portfolio until 2014 when I became DoC. I have kept a working knowledge of the competitions structure & rules central to my work. These areas are vital to steering the structure of UKU competitions in the coming years as we need to find new ways to grow with the number of teams & players.

Performance Director: Ali Tincknell

I started playing ultimate as a student at Leeds University in 2000 and have since played with teams across all 3 divisions of the UK Tour including LLLeeds Open and LLLadies, Bliss, Jeremy Codhand, and Nice Bristols. I have also been fortunate enough to play at multiple European Club tournaments and at 4 World Club tournaments; twice in Mixed and twice in Women’s. I started my GB career in 2003 and continued through to WUGC in 2012, winning 3 European Gold medals on grass and 1 World Beach Silver medal. After retiring from GB in 2012, I became part of the GB Oversight Committee and in 2018 I was asked to take on the voluntary role of GB Performance Director. I currently sit on the Board of Directors for UK Ultimate and for WFDF, where I hold the role of Chair of the Athletes’ Commission.

Outside of Ultimate, I completed a PhD in 2008 and have worked ever since at the University of Bath where I teach and research in sport psychology. I have also worked with a number of sports organisations including the Premier League, Sport England, UK Sport, and UK Anti-Doping.

University Coordinator: Emily Powell

I am a  Mechanical Engineering student at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. I have played ultimate for 3 years, having taken it up in my  second year at uni. I have played for SCRAM and Dark Horses, and I am President for Dark Horses this year, continuing in the role from last year. In addition, I am currently on the  Diversity, Equity and Inclusion committee for UKU. I want to help University ultimate teams feel heard and to support them through anything they may need.

I think that being a Uni ultimate player and having run a club, I know of a few of the struggles and wish to try help right them. One of my main aims would be to help further the relationship that regional coordinators have with teams in their  district, to try and better support them over the coming year and beyond. It is important that  teams feel they are supported by UKU over the coming year, as we all figure out the impact  COVID has had on our teams. Further to that, I want to continue the development of the women’s outdoor league, by listening to teams on what did or did not work for them with the  aim of making the game accessible to all women. 

Without Portfolio: James Cooper

"I started playing Ultimate at Nottingham University in 2001 and have been playing on and off ever since. I have been luch enough to represent GB at the Masters Level at Beach Worlds in 2017 and Euros in 2019. I've even represented Ultimate in an ill-fated TV appearance on Eggheads!

A Chartered Accountant by background, I now work for a small consultancy helping organisations define and then deliver on their corporate strategies. I've sat on two Boards previously - once as the Treasurer of a charitable organisation seeking to use derelict and underused urban spaces to grow fresh fruit and vegetables; once as an inverstor and Board member in a digital start-up seeking to disrupt everyday delivery services."

Without Portfolio: Ed Lee

I started playing Ultimate in 2001 at Oxford University and, since graduating, I have played for ABH in London for 10 years, including a number as Open captain, Mixed captain and Treasurer. I am currently captaining and coordinating GreyBH on its journey to World Masters in Winnipeg in 2018. I have a strong interest in supporting the interests of clubs focused on being a long-term venture, and I believe my many years of playing Ultimate in UKU tour events for a mid-level team give me a unique perspective to bring to the board.

In my day job, I am a partner in the international law firm, Proskauer Rose, which has a significant sports law practice, including acting for the NBA, MLB and other sporting organisations. I believe my experience and legal expertise, and access to knowledge in the Sports law practice, will be an asset to the UKU.

Without Portfolio: Fowzia Mahmood

Since picking up Ultimate at KCL in 2010, I've found myself deeply involved in the sport as an advocate to get more women playing and unlocking their potential.I co-founded the women's team Discie Chicks, and have been running it for the past 5 years with an almost fresh cycle of players each year. 

My post graduate degree in Gender Studies and work as a curriculum coordinator for a Women's Charity have helped inform my approach to the way I see and can deal with issues in Women's Ultimate. I have served on the UKU Women's committee since 2015, and a personal highlight has been the Find A Team initiative which was launched last year.  

I enjoy playing Ultimate in all disciplines and in most divisions, and the community aspect of the sport is what I find so appealing. Going forward, I'd like to continue ensuring Ultimate in the UK is always inclusive, diverse and equitable.

Without Portfolio: Serena de Nahlik

Serena has been playing ultimate since 2012. She started playing at university with OW!, and has since played for a number of teams, most recently Reading mixed and women's. She played at WUCC2018 and was on the management team for Reading Mixed, helped to organise WU232015 and WUGC2016, and is now trying to get some more structured ultimate happening in Oxford. She sits on the UKU Women's committee and the branding committee, and outside of ultimate spends her time trying to commercialise university research and help academics start companies. 

Without Portfolio: Marius Hutcheson

I come in with no fixed agenda but a strong willing to help progress our sport in the UK for both present and future players. Any part I can play in that would be a pleasure as it is a sport that has given me so much over that last 12 years. One of the areas I am passionate about is reducing barriers to entry for new players entering the sport whilst safeguarding the all-inclusive nature of Ultimate that will inevitably be harder to achieve as participation grows. I believe this is possible and that it is something the UKU has always strived to achieve, however I would like to help drive it forward in the coming years. I am also keen to see club Ultimate in the UK maintain its position as one of the most competitive in Europe, if not the world, so despite inclusivity and accessibility being key components of what I will fight for, this should not be to the detriment of high-level performance.


From a professional standpoint, I manage the investments for a number of HNWIs, small business and charities. Presenting at numerous trustee and board meetings over the years has given me significant exposure into the high-level organisation that is required to allow a venture as large as this to prosper.

Without Portfolio: Tom Abrams

Since picking up ultimate as a junior at college in 2005, I have been lucky enough to play at all levels with club and national teams, in the UK and around the world, making lifelong friends within an amazing community. 


In my professional life I help organisations to define their goals and create structures that enable their people to effectively make decisions, be innovative and solve problems. I am keen to help UKU create and implement strategies that ensure the long-term success of the sport at both the grassroots and elite levels, so that ultimate players in the UK continue to have great opportunities to play in a way that works for them. 


One area I would like to explore, is how UKU and the UK ultimate community can grow the game sustainably through creating positive, rewarding experiences and feedback loops for coaches and community organisers - the people that are the lifeblood of our sport. I believe there are opportunities for us to learn from other sports and ultimate communities around the world to establish a model that puts in place the structures to support these people who make ultimate accessible and fun for everyone.


UKU Staff

UK Ultimate employs a number of staff members in either full time or part time roles. You can click on the image of the staff member below to read a bit more about them.



Name: Simon Hill

Job Title: CEO

Name: Chris Bamford

Job Title: Administrator

Name: Meg Price

Job Title: Events Coordinator



Name: Francesca (Chesca) Weddell

Job Title: Coach Education Manager

Name: Ruth Flight

Job Title: GB Junior Ultimate

Programme Manager  



Si Hill

Name: Simon Hill

Job Title: CEO

What do you actually do???  

Inevitably I am involved to some degree in almost everything that UKU is doing.  This includes the obvious projects like helping to run events, supporting UKU sub-committees, working with external organisations such as the Youth Sport Trust, and managing the UKU staff members.  I work on a number of international ultimate groups: in particular the WFDF Ultimate Committee as well as the Rules and Event Bid groups.


Increasingly, one of my priorities is to better enable UKU volunteer sub-committees to directly drive progress and activity in their areas.  We’re trying to reduce my involvement with day to day operations so that I can invest more of my time in areas that will help increase participation and/or income in the medium-long term.


Who can I find you playing with currently/Where can I find you at tournaments?

I’m not really able to play regularly anymore - but I did manage another tournament with GB Grandmasters at European Beach in May.  Guildford, TBC and Devon were also all kind enough to let me train or play some games with them this year (despite my flakey attendance and diminishing fitness).  I work at most of the larger UKU outdoor tournaments, and if there is time between jobs, I’m always happy to stop and talk - please just wave me down!  If that doesn’t work - feel free to call me during the week.


Why might I get in touch with you?

Sadly (for me) one of the main reasons you’ll get in touch with me is that you’re unhappy with something about ultimate in the UK.  Sometimes we (staff and volunteers) make mistakes; but often there are situations where it’s not possible to make everyone happy.   Either way I promise to listen and think about what you have to say.


You’ve got an idea about something that could be different or better?

You’re looking for information about ultimate and you can’t find it anywhere!

You’re thinking of getting involved with a UKU project or sub-committee but would like to know more.

You’ve got a lead for a company that is interested in a partnership with UKU e.g. sponsoring a GB team.  Or better still, you own such a company...


Or - you just want to say “Hey!”  Ultimate players really are a lovely bunch of people, and one of the very best parts of my job is simply being at tournaments with other ultimate players.  If you’ve read this far, I think you probably know what I mean.

Chris Bamford


Name: Chris Bamford

Job Title: Administrator

What do you actually do???

For the most part I'm the first point of contact to players and public approaching UKU. That might mean responding to contact myself or directing it towards  the appropriate member of staff to deal with it. I also provide support to staff, volunteers and members on everything from using the website through to managing membership.


I also provide some admin support to our GB squads, which depending on the year can either be a relatively small task as we don't have many active squads or in certain years we'll have up to 22 active squads and it takes up a bit more time!


The final part of my role involves between Si and I basically picking up any tasks that need doing that don't fall into any of the other staff members roles!


Who can I find you playing with currently/Where can I find you at tournaments?

I'm still a reasonably active player, playing with LLLeeds and coaching Leeds university so usually on the pitch at club tournaments or on the sideline at university ones!


Why might I get in touch with you?

Among other things general questions about Ultimate, club affiliation, DBS checks, how to get involved with UK Ultimate, membership questions or website queries should be directed towards me. Also if you're not sure who to email about something then just email admin@ukultimate.com, it'll come through to me and I'll do my best to help.

Meg Price


Name: Meg Price


Job Title: Events Coordinator


Whats do you actually do???  

The main part of my role is organising the tournament calendar and the various events throughout the year, from small regional competitions to our larger National ones, across all of the divisions that you might compete in! 


In many cases I set up and manage the events from the outset until completion, including booking the venues, writing the schedules and running the tournament itself with my small group of trusty TDs. In other instances, I work closely with clubs or individuals who run their own Tournament Organising Committee (TOC) - particularly when it comes to the University Regional Events or Tier 2 UKU Ranking Events. In these cases my role can change quite a lot, from doing all of the bits I usually do but with someone else just being the Tournament Director (TD) on the day to just solely assisting the TOC with team entries and writing the schedule!


I work particularly closely with various UK Ultimate Committees, notably the UKU Competitions Committee and UKU University Committee. Regularly we review specific aspects related to each committee's area, for example the overall tournament structure or developing/expanding certain areas of competition, and I will help to implement any actions that come from various discussions or committee meetings. Similarly, working alongside Si, I look at the longer-term plan for events; this could be anything from building the brand of an event or to bidding for UK Ultimate to run a European or international competition in the future.


Who can I find you playing with currently/Where can I find you at tournaments?

I don't really play these days as it's a bit much to organise the events as well as play at them, so more likely than not you'll find me managing the show at the TD desk if I'm not enjoying a weekend off!


Why might I get in touch with you?

If you have a query about anything tournament related, anything at all! 

Lost a shoe? Email events@ukultimate.com. Not sure when entries open? Email events@ukultimate.com. Unfortunately your team needs to drop out of a tournament that's coming up? Email events@ukultimate.com. You get the gist :-) 

Laura Atkins

Name:  Laura Atkins


Job Title: Bookkeeper/Accountant


Whats do you actually do???  I make all the UKU's payments, reconcile all the money received and prepare the accounts for the Board.


Who can I find you playing with currently/Where can I find you at tournaments? I don't really play much anymore so I'm not usually around at tournaments.


Why might I get in touch with you? Usually because you need paying! 

Ruth Flight

Name: Ruth Flight


Job Title: GB Junior Ultimate Programme Manager   


What do you actually do??? 

Heck where do I start?? Listed of some of my duties as follows;


  • Assist in the appointment of junior staff 
  • Arrange GB junior trials and ensure they run smoothly.
  • Assist GB junior staff in all aspects of their jobs when required
  • Training- days or weekend 


I also arrange all aspects of trips for worlds or euros including but not limited to: 

travel, accommodation, Insurance’s, food, kit order, physio cover, Medical cover, tournament entries, pkayer prizes, player well being, parents info, payments, any individual player&staff needs whilst in uk or abroad, injury prevention & management via med squad, paperwork, a necessary evil, child protection, player wellbeing during tournament - heat management,  food management, staff wellbeing, hospital visits with injured players - We hope to minimise these visits with all of the above.  Player and parent education on how to ‘survive’ a week long tournament. Finally getting everyone home in one piece and safely after a fun filled, physically demanding successful weeks play! 


Who can I find you playing with currently/Where can I find you at tournaments?

 Hee hee I don’t actually play Ultimate but if any of my 3 daughters are playing you will usually find me  pitchside supporting them and their GB/Uni/Club teams   


Why might I get in touch with you?

 If you think you have kids who are eligible to trial for GB Juniors.

UKU Committees

The breadth of activities that are led by UK Ultimate means that of course there is far too much for the board members to handle on their own.  Consequently the Board delegates responsibility for specific areas to other committees who can then commit more time and energy to the details.

These committees tend to fall into one or more of the following areas:


The role of the Competitions Committee is to manage the structure and rules for all UKU competitions.  The detailed implementation within some divisions (notably University) are delegated to the relevant sub-committee.

In early 2013, as part of an ongoing review of the governance structure of UK Ultimate, the Board updated the Terms of Reference for this committee.  Please review that document for full details. 

The Director of Competitions (Chris Aussie White), University Coordinator (Thomas Daly) and CEO (Si Hill) are standing members of the committee.  The following representative positions are to be elected by the members of UK Ultimate:

  • Beach (vacant)
  • Indoor (Matt Burton*)
  • Juniors (vacant)
  • Mixed (Dan Godbold)
  • Open (Dave Halls)
  • Women's (Kirsten Wells)

*Matt has also been covering the Juniors role for a while.  Oli Browne has taken on a role coordinating the masters division recently, and we will need to add a formal masters division representative soon.

The Director of Competitions appoints an additional 3-6 members of the committee to provide skills, experience or points of view that might otherwise be under-represented in the group.  Currently the appointed members are:

  • Benji Heywood (UKU Event Coordinator)
  • Chris Bamford (UKU Administrator, outgoing Uni Coordinator)
  • Felix Shardlow
  • Richard Roberts
  • Adam Batchelor


Key tasks:

  • Agree and publish the UKU events calendar
  • Maintain and publish UKU Competition Rules
  • Agree and define competition formats for main UKU events
  • Deal with any questions relating to the rules, and provide rulings in unforeseen circumstances not covered by the written rules
  • Act as the first point of contact for complaints related to the competition aspects of ultimate in the UK
  • Review and update the competition structure as necessary
  • Ensure that UKU competitions and rules are structured in appropriate relationship to EUCS and WUCC competitions and rules
  • Work with international competition committees to ensure UKU input to these committees and to ensure visibility of the international programme to UKU

Members of the committee generally can expect a few hours per month of email-based correspondence relating to UKU competitions.  There are of course peaks of activity around the major competitions.  The bulk of the work tends to be reviewing competition formats, and dealing with situations or issues that arise around competitions; but there is an ongoing background activity of ensuring that the competition structures are appropriate for the state of the sport in the UK now and in the future.

We are specifically looking for one member of the committee to take the lead for communicating about the committee's work.

  • Take responsibility for rules and competition structure questions that are specific to the Women division.
  • Maintain and update the content in the Women’s area of the UKU website.

The Women’s committee is run using an “approved volunteer” system.  The approval process is handled by the existing committee.

GB Committee

The Board of Directors of UK Ultimate is responsible for setting objectives that will, among other things (such as keeping the organisation’s finances watertight) develop Ultimate in the UK. UK Ultimate has several sub-committees that have delegated authority for handling the majority of the work within their area of responsibility.  At the end of 2012, the Board agreed to set up a new committee to oversee the running of the GB teams. Initially this was comprised of Si Hill, Ali Smith and Barry O’Kane. In 2014, Georgie Davin (nee Winborn) has also moved onto the committee as one of the Board's representatives as Barry O'Kane recently resigned from the board.  The committee reports to the Board on a regular basis and seeks the Board’s advice and clarification where necessary.

The purpose of the GB Committee is several fold and includes the following, although this is not an exhaustive list:

  • to select team managers for each GB team and then work with them throughout their tenure to ensure the managers stay aligned with the objectives of UK Ultimate and the GB Ultimate Programme;
  • to make decisions that affect all GB squads so that they are handled in a fair and consistent (where appropriate) way across all the teams, and to take this load off the various team managers e.g. selecting national team uniform supplier;
  • to oversee the finances of the GB programme to ensure that costs are not excessive and again consistent and fair across all teams; although there may be differences between age group costs depending on location etc of the tournament;
  • to bring in other people on a temporary basis to consult with if their skills, knowledge or experience were required to help make a decision (eg around manager selection, financial advice, medical advice etc)
  • to set the foundations for the development a performance pathway that runs from juniors through to masters divisions that will assist with increasing the level of GB players and their performance at major Championships whilst ensuring that the UK Ultimate community continues to grow and develop at lower levels.

For more details see the Terms of Reference.

UKU is committed to fostering the principles of Spirit of the Game at all levels, as described in the Spirit of the Game Policy. The UKU Spirit of the Game Committee facilitates this, by engaging with development, education and outreach, from grassroots level to elite national representative teams.

Specifically, the Committee is responsible for:

  • Developing and sharing educational resources relating to Spirit of the Game.
  • Providing input to UKU courses for Game Advisors, Coaches, Spirit Directors and others.
  • Reviewing Spirit scoring results from UKU tournaments.
  • Acting where necessary to resolve Spirit issues with specific teams or participants* 
  • Providing resources and support to elite teams representing the UK at major international competitions (including club teams competing at events such as WUCC)

* Typically the Spirit Committee’s role is not to act in response to specific Spirit incidents during events; these should generally be handled by the Spirit Captain(s) of the team(s) involved in the first instance, or escalated to the Tournament Director and/or Spirit Director as necessary. Rather, the Committee responds to trends or systemic issues which may emerge after an event, or over the course of several events.

Spirit of the Game Policies


Temporary Committees

From time to time the board appoints a small group of people to deal with a specific question or issue.  

Most commonly this is done as a selection mechanism for coach, captain, and/or management positions for the GB teams.  In this case the usual approach is to delegate the task of considering applications to a small group of players or ex-players with significant experience of involvement with GB teams, but who have little or no personal involvement or interest in any of the applications.  The group then makes a recommendation to the Board.



All athletes have the right to compete in sport knowing that they, and their competitors, are clean. The use of performance-enhancing drugs and doping activity severely damages the legacy of sport and undermines the integrity of true athletes.


UK Ultimate is committed to ensuring that Ultimate is a drug free sport, and has Anti-Doping Rules that comply with the World Anti Doping Code (WADA), the World Flying Disc Federation (WFDF) and the National Anti Doping Organisation, UK Anti-Doping (UKAD).

Your Anti-Doping Rules

The following resolution was passed by the UKU Board in January 2013.

“The anti-doping rules of UK Ultimate are the UK Anti-Doping Rules published by UK Anti-Doping (or its successor), as amended from time to time. Such rules shall take effect and be construed as the rules of UK Ultimate.”

You can find the UK Anti-Doping Rules here.


What is anti-doping?

Anti-doping is integral to clean sport. As an athlete, it’s important you are clued up on the anti-doping rules so that you can continue to enjoy and achieve success in your sport. 

UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) is the national body responsible for protecting clean sport in the UK. UKAD ensures that sports bodies in the UK comply with the World Anti-Doping Code which governs clean sport.

100% me – supporting athletes to be clean

100% me is UK Anti-Doping’s prevention programme and is designed to help you throughout your sporting journey. 100% me supports, informs and educates athletes throughout their careers by providing anti-doping advice and guidance. Find out about 100% me in the dedicated Athlete Zone of the UK Anti-Doping website at www.100percentme.co.uk.


What is strict liability?

As an athlete, one of the most important things to be aware of is the principle of strict liability. This means that you are personally responsible for any banned substance found in your system, regardless of how it got there and whether or not you had an intention to cheat.


What are the anti-doping rules?

The World Anti-Doping Code outlines eight Anti-Doping Rule Violations (ADRVs) which govern clean sport. Athletes – and athlete support personnel – may receive a ban from sport if any of the following ADRVs are committed:

• Returning a positive test

• Using, or attempting to use, a banned substance or method

• Refusal or failure to provide a sample when requested

• Tampering, or attempting to tamper, with any part of the testing process

• Possession of a banned substance or method

• Trafficking, or attempted trafficking, of any banned substance or method

• Administering, or attempted administering, of a banned substance or method to an athlete; or encouragement, aiding and/or covering up of any involvement in an ADRV

• Receiving of any combination of three filing failures and/or missed tests in a time period of 18 months (for athletes who are part of the National Registered Testing Pool).


The Prohibited List
All banned substances and methods in Code-compliant sports are outlined on the Prohibited List, which is updated at the beginning of every calendar year but may also be updated throughout the year. The latest Prohibited List can be found on the WADA website.


Key advice to staying clean

• Understand the importance of checking medications

Before taking any medication (whether from a doctor or bought over the counter) you must check it for banned substances. Medications can be checked online at Global DRO. It is important to note that medications bought in one country may contain different ingredients to the same branded medication in another country.

• Know the risk with using nutritional supplements

You are strongly advised to be very cautious if you choose to take any supplement such as vitamin tablets, energy drinks, or sport-nutrition formulas. This is because there is no guarantee that any supplement is free from banned substances.
All athletes are advised to assess the need for the use of supplements in the first instance and to assess the risk before making a decision to use supplements. Visit the UK Anti-Doping website for further advice including information on the Informed Sport programme and case studies of athletes who have been caught out.


Apply for a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) if required

If you need to use a banned substance or method to treat a genuine medical condition, and there are no reasonable alternatives, you may have to apply for a TUE. You can find out more about whether you need a TUE and how to apply for one (including emergency TUEs) here.


• Understand what happens in a test (also known as Doping Control)

You should feel prepared when notified that you are to be tested by Doping Control. If you are selected for testing, you should take a representative with you so they can support you. You should know your rights and responsibilities, including what may happen if you are unable to provide a sample.

UK Anti-Doping recommends that you follow your normal hydration routines and that you follow the instructions given by the Doping Control Officer. You should be prepared to provide details of any substances you have taken – this needs to be written on the Doping Control form. This is your test and your sample, Find out more about testing and your rights and responsibilities in the Athlete Zone.


Know where to look for support and advice

Please do not hesitate to ask questions about the anti-doping rules. As well as asking your NGB, coaches and support personnel, you may also contact UK Anti-Doping directly, who will be able to answer any questions and provide guidance.


• Help keep sport clean

We all have a responsibility to report doping in sport and help keep it clean. A 24-hour dedicated phone line, hosted by Crimestoppers, is ready to take your call if you have any suspicions or concerns about incidences of doping in sport. You can provide information in complete confidence by calling 08000 32 23 32 or via a secure online form.  All information is passed securely to UK Anti-Doping’s intelligence unit for investigation.

Membership Donations

Why have we introduced this?

Every year some people suggest to us that they would happily pay more for membership to allow us to do more as an organisation. Rather than increase the price of membership for everyone we’ve decided to introduce a donation function to allow people to donate towards UKU projects or causes they are interested in supporting. 

At this point we’re not setting any specific fundraising goals or targets and avoiding overcommitting existing UKU staff time into things such as fundraising updates and engagement. If this initial effort demonstrates that there is significant interest in a fundraising project then we will look to invest more UKU time into setting up and maintaining an engaging fundraising scheme. Potentially donations could make a significant impact on UKU, if each full member donated £5 we could completely pay for the the medical provision of our GB teams this year or allow us to put 2500 discs into over 500 schools.


How does donating work?

People can choose to donate when making a purchase via our new membership website or by going straight to the donation page

We’ve provided options for common causes that people may prefer their donation to go towards but we do understand that some people will want to donate towards specific causes or something not listed. If you’re looking to donate to something specific not listed then thank you, if you get in touch with us directly by emailing admin@ukultimate.com we can arrange the donation. 

With all donations we'll do our best to direct them towards the cause specified however should the donations for one cause prove insufficient to make any meaningful impact in that area we'll look to redirect them towards other causes.


Is UK Ultimate a charity?

No.  UK Ultimate is a not-for-profit organisation, but we are not a charity, so you cannot gift-aid a donation.  Historically we have had very little reason to do the work to become a charity and the professional advice we received on this question was that the additional administrative and regulatory burden would likely offset any financial benefits.  It is a question we review from time to time.

The Good Causes:

GB Programme

Playing Ultimate for Great Britain is expensive. We have no reason to think this will change in the near term. Making some simplifications and assumptions, most players spend £1k-£2k a year whilst competing in a GB team (including travel to, and accommodation, at the tournament, but also the cost of training sessions, warm-up tournaments, etc).

Donations to the GB Programme will go towards building up a fund that we use to reduce - and eventually eliminate - certain costs that players currently have to meet when competing for a GB team. If and when we attract commercial sponsors (*) to support GB Ultimate, we will also apply their financial support in a similar way (subject to any specific requirements they may have).

Our first goal is to cover the cost of the medical staff that support the teams during competition; prioritising support roughly equally to the U24, U20 and U17 teams at first. These costs are approximately £1000 per team, although of course all costs associated with GB teams vary depending on the location of the event.  

In 2018 we have 3x U24 teams going to Australia and 2x U20 teams competing in Canada.  Even years generally involve fewer GB teams than odd years.

By contrast, in 2019, we expect to see:

2x U17 at European Youth Ultimate Championships

2x U20 at European Youth Ultimate Championships

3x U24 at WFDF WU24s (the event in Jan 2018 is really the 2017 event!)

3x senior teams at European Ultimate Championships

2 or 3x masters teams at European Ultimate Championships

7 or 8x beach teams at European Championships Beach Ultimate


Over the 4-year cycle 2018-21, medical support for the teams will cost approximately £50k.


(*) Think you know an organisation that may be interested in sponsoring one or more GB teams?  Please get in touch.

UKU Schools and Youth development projects

Funds donated to this cause will be used for either to support the UKU Schools Affiliation programme of providing 5 free discs to each affiliated school or to support the development of a network of regional development hubs that provide an additional opportunity for young players to play regularly.


UKU School Affiliation

UKU School Affiliation has been running for two years.  Schools receive 5 free Discraft discs in return for signing-up, providing a point of contact and some data on the number of people that are playing, or will be playing ultimate at the school.  The numbers are really exciting in fact, and as of October 2017, we had 130+ schools with 17,000 pupils trying ultimate in curriculum time, and over 2,500 playing in extra-curricular activities.

This project has three really simple aims:



This project is supported primarily by Discraft, who provide us with a number of training-discs each year as part of our partnership. However, we’d like the scheme to keep growing and will need additional funding to make that work.


Regional Development Hubs

We clearly have some major gaps in provision for young people that want to play ultimate:

All these gaps in playing opportunities are more acute for girls than boys.

To help partially fill some of these gaps we aim to set up some "regional training hubs" where we believe there are enough players to make them viable. With the help of local players and coaches, these hubs will run regular sessions for players between ages of approx 13-19. As more junior clubs grow and meet the regular playing needs of junior players, the regional hubs will transition increasingly into a training and selection pathway to national squads.

To make these successful, we need to book good facilities, provide training and support for organisers and coaches, and invest in raising awareness around each hub.

As with School Affiliation, UKU will be investing in this plan anyway, but with your support we can set up more hubs, move more quickly, and/or provide more support for the people involved.

Safeguarding Children and Young People

"Playing, coaching and participating safely"


UK Ultimate, as the national governing body of Ultimate in the UK recognises that is has a responsibility towards creating and maintaining a culture that protects children and young people from abuse, within and outside the Ultimate community. To this end, UK Ultimate has created a safeguarding policy that will help support clubs who have children and young people involved, playing Ultimate. The UKU Safeguarding Committee has recently produced a Safeguarding Pack, which includes a number of starting-point documents.


The policy is designed to act as a framework of action to support a culture of safeguarding. UK Ultimate has created a "safeguarding pack" for clubs to download and read. We recommend that clubs adopt this as their safeguarding policy, although they are free to adopt their own if the club committee has appropriate expertise.  As a governing body, UK Ultimate wishes to encourage autonomy with all Ultimate clubs. It is understood that each club will have a different approach to how they are run and there is no desire to force a specific structure on club committees. However, when adopting the Safeguarding Policy a club is agreeing to adhere to those stated principles of best practice. This is because the welfare of the children and young people must remain paramount, and it is this principle that will define a culture of good and best practice.


The policy outlines "best practice" which defines a minimum standard for how a club and its members should handle having children and young people involved in Ultimate. However, safeguarding goes much further than just adopting the policy from the website. UK Ultimate understand that fulfilling the requirements and gaining the knowledge & training needed to be responsible for young people can seem like an insurmountable task to get started. As such, we have created a guidance document that explains the policy in accessible language and with understandable and achievable steps.


If you have any questions please contact UK Ultimate via email (admin@ukultimate.com)


We recommend that a committee member of a club who wants to take on the role of Safeguarding or Designated member/officer does a 3 hour Safeguarding Children in Sport course. This can be done with the NSPCC online or done in person with UK Coaching.

Tournament Standards and Guidelines

TDing UKU Events

If you are running an ultimate event with or for UK Ultimate please contact the UKU Events Coordinator (events@ukultimate.com) to receive all the documents you will need, including insurance certificate, risk assessment templates, incident forms etc as well as an overview of what you will need to do to follow our procedures.


UKU Sanctioned Events

We can also sanction your events that are not part of our own event programme - for example beginner events, hat tournaments or summer leagues. The benefits of sanctioning, and the requirements it places on you, are described in the Sanctioning Guidelines. The main benefit of having your event sanctioned is that both the players and the organisers are covered by UKU's insurance; in return we require that everyone is a member and that some basic safety guidelines are followed. More information in the Sanctioning Guidelines, or contact us on events[at]ukultimate.com


Bidding to run UKU events

If you are interested in bidding to organise/run any of our Club Outdoor Events, check out the events that are open for bids HERE. The details on what needs to be included in your event bid and how to submit it can also be found on the same page.


Many events are now centrally organised by the UKU, but please do get in touch if you have details of a venue that we don't/might not know about, or if you are keen to help out as part of our TD team. You can contact us by emailing events@ukultimate.com.

Data Protection

I give permission for UK Ultimate to store personal information entered during the registration process. I understand that this data may be used to administer and promote the sport of Ultimate and should I have any concerns or queries regarding how personal data is used I can contact UK Ultimate via the website. Information stored will not be provided to any third parties without my prior permission.

Participant Waiver

  • Ultimate (all variations including indoors and beach in addition to the standard version played outdoors on grass or similar surface) is a non contact sport. As with any sport there are risks associated with Ultimate related activity (“Activity” means any activity associated with participation in an Event, including all competitions, preparations, social events, meetings, ceremonies and the provision of services such as accommodation, food and transport). By participating in the Sport, you run the risk of serious injury including chronic pain, permanent incapacitation, paralysis and death, particularly through contact with the ground, other players and objects on or outside the playing area.  Ultimate is self-refereed, and so athletes take on responsibilities that might otherwise be held by a 3rd-party official.
  • Playing indoor ultimate also increases the likelihood of collisions with a wall surrounding the playing area, and may be played on a hard surface.

You can minimise the risk of incident by doing the following :


  • Understand the rules and physical requirements of Ultimate. 
  • Take responsibility to ensure that the Sport is played within the rules, that athlete safety is maintained, and that problems are addressed as they occur.
  • Take reasonable steps to avoid collisions that would be expected to harm me or other players. Whilst the Sport may be termed a non-contact sport, even if the rules are adhered to contact may occur. It may occur because players fail to perceive a potentially dangerous situation or evaluate risk poorly or lack sufficient co-ordination or intentionally cause contact. 
  • Only take part in the Sport if you are medically and physically fit and able to so. If you have a pre-existing medical condition that could be exacerbated by participation, or if you are pregnant consult a medical practitioner before participating
  • If you believe any conditions make it unsafe to participate, or continue to participate, remove yourself from an Activity or an Event.
  • Understand that playing areas may contain defects such as holes, sprinkler heads, mud, rocks, broken glass and other foreign materials which the organiser may not have the resources to fully inspect before each Activity and so ensure that areas are safe prior to playing on them, take mitigating action if necessary or choose not to play if the risks are too great.
  • Remove yourself immediately from any lightning-affected Activity and not wait for an official cancellation of the Activity.
  • Stop participating in an Activity if you are affected by heat, feel dizzy, nauseous or weak, and seek medical attention immediately.
