Ro Sham Bo
Edinburgh University’s Ultimate Frisbee Club
Producing Scotland’s best ultimate players since 1998
**** WEBSITE STILL UNDER MAINTENANCE ****
Ro Sham Bo is Edinburgh University’s Ultimate frisbee team founded on the Meadows in 1998. We are a fun welcoming team for anyone, whether you are looking for a fun hobby in your spare time or wanting to compete with the performance squad at national level, everyone is welcome to join our club, no matter who you are or how much frisbee you’ve played before. We welcome players of all abilities, from complete beginners, many of whom have never thrown a disc, to experienced players who have played on the international stage.
If you are looking to join a sport at Edinburgh to keep yourself fit and have some fun then come along to one of our taster sessions or open invite training sessions to get yourself involved and give yourself an opportunity to meet new people and make some great friends.
Outdoor training on The Meadows
Wednesday 2pm – 4pm
Sunday 11:30pm – 1:30pm
Indoor training at St. Leonards Land
Friday 8:30pm – 10pm
Sunday 9am – 10:30am
The performance squad training sessions are for those invited and trails for these will be held at the start of each semester.
You should wear the clothes that you would usually use to play sport – as well as bringing a light and a dark shirt so that we can easily differentiate between teams. It is a good idea to bring a water bottle, studded boots and a frisbee if you have one!
We’ve got 4 membership options
Recreational Membership (Full year): £20
Having the recreational membership means that you can join us for our training sessions on the Meadows (Wednesdays 2:00 – 4:00pm and Sundays 11.30 – 1.30pm) and play in competitions with the club.
Recreational Membership (1 Semester): £15
Same as the recreational membership but only valid for a single semester.
Competitive Membership (Full year): £40
As well as including sessions on the meadows and access to competitions, the competitive membership also includes outdoor sessions at Peffermill and indoor sessions at St. Leonards Land.
Since the Competitive membership uses the University facilities, you will need a FULL GYM MEMBERSHIP (semester or full) to purchase this membership.
Competitive Membership (1 Semester): £25
Same as the competitive membership but only valid for a single semester.
You can learn more about – and buy – membership here!
A social atmosphere is at the heart of every University Ultimate Team, and we are no exception. This year we will be sponsored by Finnegans, where the club meets for a drink, or a chat, every Wednesday night.
We also plan other social events alongside our weekly visits to the pub, such as: Ro Sham flat crawl, “family” nights, Christmas dinner and pub golf among many others. Tournaments are usually a weekend long, with a fun party planned on the Saturday night.
If drinking is not your scene, however, don’t be deterred! As a club, we make sure everyone has a good time – alcohol or not!
