Contact: Bill Bourret
Fields: Outdoor Turf
Description: ----UPDATE: Our group is currently not playing due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The earliest we'll resume is July 2020, although it might not be until August or September. Updates in our Facebook group.----
Fun pickup ultimate under the lights! We play 2 evenings a week at UNC. Our games are free and open to the public. We are fairly competitive, but players of any experience or athleticism are welcome, so long as you can run and catch a disc.
IMPORTANT: We typically play Mon and Wed at 8:30pm, but our schedule can change due to field conflicts. The days might switch to Tue/Thu, or times switch too. Schedule is posted Sundays here:
Note: We use facebook likes as a minimum rsvp, but usually get more attendees than likes. The posted time is the suggested arrival time. We start play within ~20 min.

BRING: Cleats and shoes, white shirt and dark shirt, water. There are restrooms with running water on Hooker. There are outhouses and running spigots at Finley.
PARK: For Hooker, use School of Government deck east of the fields (via South Rd). There is a $1 per car per night fee for all of UNC campus. This is payable at https://parkmobile.io/ or in the ParkMobile app (zone 4500). You can also bring a dollar and ask someone to pay. Finley parking is free and onsite.
Note: If the School of Gov deck is closed (rare), Cobb Deck to the north, School of Law to the south, or Raleigh Road visitor lot to the east are good backups. Check facebook for info.
GAMEPLAY: We play by USAU 2020 rules and call fouls, stalls, picks etc. Dropped pulls don't result in a turnover, just light heckling. If your team scores, you get priority to play next point, no matter where you are on the field when the point is scored. If your team gets scored on, it's first 7 on the line who get to play.
Come out and say hi!
