Whether you're a 10-year veteran or you've never picked up a disc, we invite you to play ultimate with us. IKU and friends play spirited yet casual pickup generally twice a week in the Tokyo area. If you're living in or even just passing through the area, please come play pickup!
We generally play pickup at the following times. However, pickup is canceled if IKU is at a tournament, or in some cases in the event of inclement weather. So, you'll want to check the forum for confirmation that pickup is on before you head out.
We book the fields once per two-month period, and the specific dates we have the field reserved are posted to our Facebook Group. Note that cleats are not allowed at weeknight pickup (trainers/tennis shoes only).
Hiroo Jr. High School does not allow us to play if it is raining or if the ground is not dry. If the weather is questionable, check the forum before heading out. Also note: weeknight ultimate at Hiroo is for residents of Shibuya-ku.
A Note on Sunday PickupDue to the increasing schedule of IKU and Kuru practices, an increasing schedule of tournaments, and increasing difficulties in field availability, pickup has not been as regular recently as it used to be. We encourage you to contact us via the forums or email to confirm that pickup is on before coming out.
What to Bring
You don't need to bring much -- the most important thing is to bring a dark and a light shirt (not a grey shirt!) as we typically play darks vs lights. If you have a frisbee or cleats, bring them too. Also, a jug of water is useful, although there are water options both at Kuji and at Hiroo.
If you have any questions, please either contact us or post to the forum. We look forward to seeing you!
