I’ve been learning from some basic frisbee techniques from Vinny and Adam(much appreciation to my friend Vinny who gave me the frisbee crash-course two weeks ago), and on Friday evening, I finally got to watch a live ultimate frisbee game. It took me more than 40 minutes to finally find this football pitch after getting off at Prince Edward MTR station, but it didn’t ruin my excitement of watching my friends playing ultimate.
In case you haven’t heard of Ultimate, Wikipedia tells us a little bit about this game:
Ultimate is a non-contact sport played with a 175 gram flying disc. The object of the game is to score points by passing the disc to a player in the opposing end zone, similar to an end zone inAmerican football or rugby. Players may not run with the disc, and may only move one foot while holding the disc (pivoting).
I did learnt a lot from watching the game, and the biggest lesson: you’ve got a lot of running if you play this.
As Vinny and Andrea mentioned that the sportsmanship in Ultimate is superb, I totally agree on that. This is a game I would like to try out in the future.
