USA Ultimate defines ultimate as a "Player defined and controlled non-contact team sport played with a flying disc on a playing surface with end zones in which all actions are governed by the 'Spirit of the Game™."
There are more than 5 million ultimate players worldwide, and more than 7000 people play ultimate in Seattle.
All you need to play is a disc (Frisbee(TM)), some cones, and a playing field. Games are typically played with 7 players a side, but there are many variations. The most unique aspect of ultimate is that it's self-officiated - players make all calls themselves - even at national and international championships!
