UCT Ultimate is a student club that strives to cater for everyone's needs from newbie, to fun loving social enthusiast, all the way up to SA champ. For the complete beginner we have well spirited and fun weekly social pickups. For the social enthusiasts, we have hat tournaments and less competitive teams to join. And for the more serious players, we have multiple trophies to showcase the level of ultimate this club can play!
Our ethos in a nutshell would be to have fun playing a good brand of ultimate, while building a strong community of good friends within the club - that’s what we encourage above all else. We apply this to each of our teams at UCTU, which includes 3 mixed teams, 2 men's teams and 1 women's team.
UCT Ultimate (UCTU) had its first practice in November 2009, and was recognized at the University of Cape Town as an official sports club in February 2010 – the first official university ultimate club in Africa. Its membership base has grown from strength to strength starting out with about 20 social players in 2009, growing to over 100 members making it the largest ultimate club in South Africa.
