Ultimate is a limited-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 in American football or rugby. Players may only move one foot while holding the disc.
While originally called Ultimate Frisbee, it is now officially called Ultimate.
By the rules of USA Ultimate, a standard game of Ultimate is played on a field 40 yards (37 m) wide by 120 yards (110 m) long, the length of which is divided into a 70-yard (64 m) playing field with 25-yard (23 m) end zones at each end. All play is seven on seven, with teams permitted a maximum roster size of 27 players. International WFDF rules use a field with smaller end-zones at 18 meters. There are usually 7 players per team, but games are sometimes played with fewer than that number. In mixed Ultimate, at least 3 members of each gender must be on one team at a time.
