Welcome to DUFFA - Manchester's Ultimate Frisbee club for all!
We're Manchester's open Ultimate Frisbee club, one of the largest in the North West and organisers of the DUFFA Hat tournament. We meet and play twice a week - outdoors at Fog Lane Park, Didsbury, Manchester and indoors (winter only) at Parrs Wood High School Sports Hall.
Over the winter (September - April), we play every Sunday outdoors and Thursday evenings indoors. Over the summer (April - August), we play every Thursday and Sunday and finish with a pint or three in the Fletcher Moss, Didsbury.
Our players are of varying levels, from total beginners to uni-level. We also frequently meet up for socials in and around the Didsbury area and new members are very welcome.
Never Played Ultimate Before? No Problem!
DUFFA's aim is to ensure that new members are always made to feel welcome and level ensures that just about anyone can just turn up and join in. We welcome all abilities, especially those who have never played before. We're happy to take people new to Ultimate Frisbee through the basics - from how to throw and catch and go over the rules in a relaxed atmosphere. We run regular "Beginners Sessions" but if you're interested in trying Ultimate feel free to turn up to any session in old trainers (or ideally football boots, especially if it's muddy) and bring a bottle of water.
Beginners are ALWAYS welcome and we also run beginners specific session on the first Sunday of every month - see here for more details.
For players looking for something more serious than pickup (you can still come to DUFFA too!) then there is a new website - Ultimate Frisbee in Manchester - providing details of every club in Manchester.
What is Ultimate?
A competitive team game with a Frisbee (known as a "disc"). Imagine a cross between American Football (for the endzones) and Netball. Now add a frisbee and some fun... See 10 Simple Rules for Playing Ultimate
When and Where We Play
We usually play whatever the weather - with the recent rain (January 2016) we have had to cancel a couple of sessions to avoid damaging the pitches - please always check the website before heading out! - full details of all of our sessions and up coming events can viewed on our calendar
Outdoor Sessions: We play at Fog Lane Park, followed by a pint or three in The Fletcher Moss. To find us in the park, just look for people throwing frisbees!
Indoor Sessions: We play at Parrs Wood High School Sports Hall - SAT NAV: M20 5PG. Follow the road around to the back of the building - there's ample parking by the outdoor 5-aside pitches. Indoors finishes on the 7th April when we then play twice a week outdoors.
