Ultimate frisbee is a game that is popular at many college campuses. Many can be seen playing it in the quad or a park on a nice day.

In recent years, Ultimate Frisbee (aka: Ultimate) has become a competitive sport. UC Davis has two ultimate frisbee club teams: [WWW]Rogues (women) and the Davis Dogs (men). In addition to the club teams, there is also an IM league during Fall, Spring, and Summer quarters and Physical Education classes.

Ultimate became a sport with the founding of its national governing organization in 1968.
