It’s been a while since we’ve updated the website but that doesn’t mean our seasons been quiet, in fact it’s been anything but that. Here’s one big post summarising all of our results and best moments from the 2021-2022 season!
Regionals: Our indoor season this year began as one of the best ever! We managed to qualify all three teams to nationals; womens, mixed and men’s with the men’s team going to division 1!
Nationals: We continued the streak of brilliant results with the women’s team finishing 12th at div 2, beating seed and the men’s team coming an amazing 6th place starting all the way at the bottom as the 20th seed in div 1! Finally we played mixed div 2 were we finished a respectable 10th, just missing out on the top bracket.
BUCS league: Both the men’s and women’s team this year competed in the BUCS league. The men’s team won 4 and lost 3 games and the women qualified for div 2 nationals!
Women’s Nationals: The women continued their form into nationals, braving some very difficult cold weather but persevering and playing some really nice ultimate!
Varsity 2021-2022 was one to remember! We took over 30 players to Cambridge to compete over the weekend in both indoors and outdoors fixtures!
Indoor Varsity: We had multiple teams compete this year at indoor varsity, two men’s teams, two women’s teams and one mixed team. We had some great match ups with the Cambridge, with the women’s second winning their match, the women’s first playing a tightly contested game and the men’s first losing on universe.
Outdoor varsity: We had four teams compete at outdoor varsity, two men’s teams, one women’s and one mixed team. The women’s team opened up the fixtures with a close game against the Cambridge women. The men then player after, with the seconds winning their match and the men’s first sadly again losing an epic game on universe. Finally we finished with the mixed were team put up a good fight but unfortunately lost.
Congratulations to Cambridge, they were incredible and got the better of us in some close fought games. Next year the fixtures will be in Oxford and we will be ready to reclaim our trophies!
Logo: We updated our logo this year, it’s a just a slightly modern take on the current logo! We had multiple designs which went to a club vote and this is the final design!
Stash: We also managed to get new kit this year thanks to the hard work of our stash officer Kate. They had to deal with some fairly troublesome shipping issues due to Covid but the kit made it’s way to Oxford and we are excited to rep it next year!
