Sabah is always hot, so given enough willing participants, there might well be play whatever the weather. It is best to keep an eye on the Facebook page for updates though as rain sometimes is a deal-breaker.
Most people are welcome. If you’ve never played before, just read at least the 10 Basic Rules of Ultimate before you come, and arrive early so that somebody can show you the basics of throwing, catching and defence. That way everybody will enjoy the session more.
Beach Ultimate Pick-up
Location: 1st Beach, Tanjung Aru
Days: Tuesdays, Thursdays
Time: 18:00 – 20:00
Beach sessions are informal affairs on the beach and can be played barefoot. It’s not beach Ultimate, but rather Ultimate on the beach. The only difference to field Ultimate is that the playing field size is determined by the tide and participant attendance, but for the rest WFDF Ultimate rules apply. There are shops nearby for water and whatevers.
T2 Sunday Pick-up
Location: Rugby/Football Field, Terminal 2, Low Cost Terminal, KK Airport
Time: 16:00 – 18:00
Sunday Pick-up games are a little more structured and marginally more competitive. Often a near-standard playing field with 7-aside games are possible. The field is mainly grass with large sandy patches and a bit of undulation. The nearest shop is a 20 minute walk, so bring water / sunscreen and, of course, cleats.
T2 Saturday Skills Training
Location: Rugby Field, Terminal 2, Low Cost Terminal, KK Airport
Skills Training Sessions are held randomly. Join the Ultimate Frisbee Sabah Facebook group, or our mailing list, to stay on top of when this particular session takes place. The focus is on skills and fitness, which may or may not end with a scrummage.
The Sabah Ultimate Facebook Group should have the latest updates, so check in there just before heading to the field to see what’s up.
