Ultimate’s Origin

Amherst is the birthplace of Ultimate Frisbee — don’t let those kids at Columbia High School tell you any different. The game got its start at Amherst College prior to the 1940s and the invention of the Frisbee (students played the game with cake pan lids then.) Today, it’s inescapable — especially on beautiful afternoons in pretty parks (like, say, the Amherst Commons).
