Now for some news from the rest of the world:

We love Women’s ultimate here at tSG and we really enjoyed this weeks viral piece on Ultiworld. From Brute Squad (Boston, USA) and recent Whitecaps triallist Emily Baecher writes about how we can’t measure Women using the same points of reference as Men in ultimate and how Women’s Ultimate IS a sport it it’s own right!

Next up Shut Your Cake-hole … sorry SYC have released a little photo montage from the 2013 season.


Finally my personal favourite. We see many foreign students playing Ultimate in UK Universities and one lucky Turkish player (Eylem Caner) did so with Sussex University in 2012. From there he has gone on to represent his country at ECBU in their very successful WFDF debut and about a year ago he created this wonderful mini-documentary about the love of the sport. Includes some great UK and European Ultimate clips plus interviews with some of the central characters in Brighton (and UK) Ultimate. TheShowGame is very proud to (re)present “Love at First Flight”.

?????, Bad Skid, Get Horizontal, Iceni, SYC, The Grapevine

The Grapevine covers this weeks Ultimate from near and far…

Get Horizontal (our European partners) gave us a promotion on twitter whilst reminding us there is no ‘I’ in team (although there is a me?) with Brummie’s “No Heroes” piece.

Iceni and SYC released their trial schedules for the coming season, London and South East women get to both and enjoy some high level women’s ultimate! See their FB posts below:

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_GB/all.js#xfbml=1”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_GB/all.js#xfbml=1”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));



Our German friends who came to London’s Calling last year (coming back?) took some advice from us in Bordeaux airport and did an english episode!! And it was awesome, watch it here.




Nice one! We always love to hear your suggestions and really want more contributors for the coming seasons, keep your eyes open for a big announcement soon. Especially if you love frisbee chat… DP @ tSG.
