Ultimate Description

Ultimate is described by Scott Sandsberry like this:
"Think soccer without kicking. Football without blocking and tackling. Basketball without a ball or a net.

Think running. A lot of running — sprinting, pausing and then sprinting again, each brief respite spent sharing personal space with an arm-waving opponent.

No, Ultimate isn't always that intense. In many settings it's a social interaction of laughter and lightness. It is ping pong.

What they're playing at Franklin Park, by that standard, is tournament table tennis.

Except that in this case, the "ball" can float through the air with the grace of an eagle ... into the fingers of a diving player with grass-stained knees."
