German University’s Championships

On July 23rd/24th, 2018, the Ultimate Frisbee team from Leuphana University took the chance to challenge themselves in this year’s German University’s Championships in Kiel. The players tried to collect as much points as possible in games full of rain, wind and a little bit of sunshine. We won 4 games out of ten. Therefore, we could not play in quarter finals and we only reached placement 20 out of 23.

Nevertheless, we were not only in good shape on the fields. We danced and sang to local music from Lüneburg like “leuphana-girl” or the song of Lüneburg on the camp ground and on the sideline, while gathering other player around us. During long interruptions between the games, we used our time wisely to keep up friendships and relationships we have made so far.

The team from Munich could bring the trophy back home after the finals. They won against the team from Aachen. The victory of the spirit was gained by TU Berlin. We could reach the 4th.

During the upcoming winter term we offer training sessions for rookies and more advanced players. Either register online for beginner’s training session and/or the more advanced version. Everyone is happily invited. Any knowledge about the sports is not necessary.

Intensive Ultimate at Fackel Up in Braunschweig

A beautifully mixed team of players from Studentenfutter, Farmers (old and new ones) and massive support from Berlin and Italy started to throw the discs down the green fields.

Our first match on saturday against Feldmädchen from Mainz was a very tight one. In the end neither we nor the others could win. What an ultimate experience!! Feldmädchen from Mainz won, in the end, the tournament’s spirit award with good reasons as we found out. Unfortunately, we lost the next three games against Goldfinger Ultimate Club, Washed with all Waters and Frisbee Fieber Gießen. We just couldn’t handle it 😀 though, we never lost our spirit and energy and succeeded against Airpussies in our last game of the day – 11:7!

In this year’s beer race we could compete in the semi finals and lost! Die Sieben Todsünden gained a lot of fame and honor for winning the beer race. Following that, we enjoyed ourselves and this unbelievable buffet. At this point, big round of applause to Torpot for an amazing and thrilling meal and for the organization of the tournament. It seemed that we didn’t shake our booties ’til the end, so Schleudertrauma grabbed the party award.

Sunday morning, it was derby time. Farmers versus Fischkutter. 10:5! No words needed. After a really tight fight against Gdpfriends with benefits we won this challenging game. In our last game of the tournament, deine Mudder from Bremen cleaned us up and we lost 6:15.

Scoring: 19. A little bit shaky at the beginning we could improve during the tournament and could grow – mentally and physically! It was wicked! Thank you!

See you soon! Somewhere. Anywhere. Everywhere!

3-2-1: Farmers’ love!

Muhraay in Münster!

For our weekend before pentecost we went to FKT’s 22nd edition in Münster. We wanted to rock that: FKT should have been our preparation tournament for the German championship in june. No chance! Only five people could make it to Münster. However, the Farmers have friends everywhere in the world, so we set up a new team: FARMERS & FRIENDS. Thanks to massive support from Wuppertal, Oldenburg, Münster, Lübeck, Düsseldorf and Frankfurt we did have terrific fun.

We succeeded in our first pool games against Ilmenau and Porta Pirates from Trier, in which our rookie Marvin scored twice. Third in the row was Jungspunde from Münster. In a gigantic and intense Ultimate Game Greenhorn beat us. We lost our next game against the Dutchhumans because of a suprising play. There was no chance to reach the semi-finals. In our last game on saturday we won against our close friends from Hamburg Alsters. On sunday, we lost our two point lead and ultimately lost against Frizzly Bears from Aachen. We finished on 11th place after we have succeeded against the Caracals from Wuppertal.

Special thanks to all our Pick-Up-Players!! Wouldn’t have been possible without you!!! Thank you Indis for an unbelievable tournament, to all our FRIENDS and all people who were in charge of the tournament. See you soon!
