It was in 2003 when a bunch of bored engineering students began throwing around a Frisbee during their free time in college. Soon, this evolved to regular competitive games of Goaltimate. The short breaks between classes were no longer enough so they started to meet up early on weekdays for games of Goaltimate. The Frisbee revolution in Bangalore had begun. What started with around 4-6 people grew to 20+ in no time. This was the humble beginnings of the team Learning to Fly(L2F). But Ultimate in Bangalore was yet to kick off.
Soon this would all change. Around early 2008 a group of outdoor enthusiasts contacted L2F about a Ultimate tournament to be held in Kodaikanal, April-2008. This group called themselves Disc-O-Deewane (DoD). DoD were a motley bunch of people ranging from rock climbers, nature enthusiasts, marathon runners and software engineers. Ultimate was new to them too, but they loved the idea of the sport, the rules and the Spirit Of The Game.
And thus Ultimate happened in Bangalore. Every weekend, both teams would meet to practice and play Ultimate in preparation for the Kodai tournament. Soon these Ultimate enthusiasts started meeting thrice a week to hone and improve their skills. Soon friends, friends of friends and family too joined in. Some joined out of curiosity, some to stay fit, and a few even to shed weight. Fresh faces on game days became common, some of them had played the game abroad and were happy to see players in India. It was only a matter of time before the popularity of Ultimate skyrocketed. Ultimate in Bangalore now has a firm footing and is fast-growing. The teams from Bangalore figure among top contenders for the tournaments they take part in.
