Ultuimate officially recognised as a sport in the UK

UK’s newest sport | UK Ultimate

UK Ultimate is delighted to announce that on 10th November 2008 confirmation was received that Ultimate has been officially “recognised” by UK Sport and the home country Sports Councils: Sport England, sportscotland, Sports Council Wales and Sport Northern Ireland.

The main reason I had heard before that it hadn’t been accepted is because the sport explicitly doesn’t have referees – the game is refereed by all the players together, acting in “the Spirit of the Game”

Perhaps most of all it is worth stopping to consider that this milestone also means official acceptance of, and support for, self-refereeing and the Spirit of the Game.

It is interesting to see that the lack of referees didn’t actually stop it being accepted
