Ultimate Frisbee is the original name of the game now simply called Ultimate. Some other names that have been used in place of Ultimate Frisbee are Ultimate Disc and Ultimate Flying Disc.

It seems that the Frisbie Pie Company of Bridgeport, CT, founded in the latter half of 1800’s, by William Russell Frisbie, sold their pies on round pie tins that had the company name FRISBIES PIES. At that time Frisbie employees and Connecticut school children would hurl the round tins to each other in a game of catch. Legend has it that men, women and children tossing the pie tins would yell “Frisbie” to give warning that the flying pie tin was on its way, and bystanders beware!

According to several sources found online, the Wham-O toy company had been making a round plastic disc they called the “Pluto Platter”. In 1957, after learning of the popularity of the Frisbie tins, Wham-O renamed their disc the FRISBEE, changing the spelling, possibly by accident, possibly to avoid any trademark conflicts. And as they say the rest is history.

Ultimate Frisbee became an organized game in the late 1960’s when New Jersey high school students invented the game. Ultimate Frisbee is a conglomeration of a number of team sports including basketball, football and soccer. Ultimate Frisbee is played on a rectangular field with end zones at each end similar in layout to a football field. Scoring in Ultimate Frisbee occurs when a passed disc is caught in the end zone. One unique aspects of Ultimate Frisbee are that rules are enforced by the players without (in most cases) the use of referees.
