Ultimate Frisbee was introduced as a games option in 2010 and has been a popular summer Sixth Form games option ever since.
As time has progressed more year groups have become involved and in summer 2015 it became part of the PE curriculum leading to an increase in players at school.
In the summer term there are training sessions for both seniors and juniors either at Hartswood or on Broadfield. It can be considered a cross between American football and netball in that the idea is to pass the disc up the pitch and catch it in an end-zone. The game is physically demanding as teams of seven frequently cover the 100m x 40m pitch. The game is self-refereed and relies on ‘Spirit of the Game’ where players are expected to call any fouls they make. Winning a game requires skill, fitness and tactics.
The school has attended the National Outdoor Tournament with U20 and U16 teams on a number of occasions; winning the U20 plate competition in 2014 and the U16 Spirit award in 2015. In addition we play local teams whenever possible. Our most regular opponent is Tonbridge school who we play every year and with whom we enjoy a friendly and completive rivalry.
We maintain great links with Old Reigatians who continue playing at university. Players are able to get a head start over other freshers and go onto important handling roles and captaincies. In 2015 we hosted the first Old Boys Tournament which featured two Old Reigatian teams and two school teams. Finally, each year the school takes on a staff team which is a very enjoyable and competitive match.
