There is no shortage of Ultimate players in the Rochester area. The Greater Rochester Area Disc Association estimates that there are as many as 4,000 regular players of the sport locally. From casual, less-organized match-ups among friends (and strangers) on nice days in Ellison and other area parks, to organized league play on weekends throughout the spring and summer, to Rochester’s first professional team, the local Ultimate scene is thriving. The game has evolved from its low-key beginnings on college campuses. It’s still got the same laid-back vibe, but it’s no longer just for frat boys or hippies looking for a break from football practice and hacky-sack. “Anyone can play,” says Tanya Beiswenger of Greater Rochester Area Disc Association’s Spring Fling league. “Literally, anyone.” (Pictured: Eric "Ginger" Dixon of the Rochester Dragons professional Ultimate team.)
