LOCATION: Stellenbosch, WC
Our club ethos is in line with the constitution of the Sports Bureau of the University of Stellenbosch. At all times, we strive to uplift the Maties name, whilst embodying the spirit of Ultimate. We are open, supportive, competitive and social. Our belief is in working and playing hard, whilst remaining open and encouraging to members who merely want to learn or remain active, thus also having a purely social side to our membership.
Maties Ultimate, previously known as Stellenbosch Ultimate and founded from a group of university students and alumni and became an official university sports club in 2012.
We have two training sessions per week, where we focus on both beginner and advanced Ultimate skills and strategy. Maties Ultimate participated in their inaugural tournament at Mixed Nationals in April 2012 and since has steadily improved, finishing 5th in Mixed Nationals 2015, their highest ever. Maties has also sent Open and Women's teams to Nationals, with the highlight being the 2nd place finish of the Maties Women's team at Open/Women's Nationals 2015.
The field mostly used by Maties Ultimate for training is on the Coezenburg sports grounds next to the Cricket-B field and since the drought of 2016/17 experienced by the Western Cape, it has become known as the "Woestyn".
