Fields

Games are played on artificial grass in a huge indoor sports hall in excellent quality. The same field the national soccer team uses for winter season training.
The fields are 68x24m – significantly larger than regular indoor fields. Close to beach ultimate size.

Playing indoor ultimate on grass the game is more authentic, turns are faster and layouts don’t give you category 3 skin burns. It’s like outdoor ultimate but without wind and rain, so keep expecting blades and hammers!

On the big field size, throwing skills become more important. How far can you throw a good hammer? Playing 5 – 5 there is a lot more space than what we’re used to indoors. Each player on the field needs to be active.
