UPI Field Rentals

We thank those that helped support the league during Stage 2. Now that we've entered Stage 3

****************

With the recent announcement from the Ontario government that Outdoor Recreational Facilities can re-open and with the City of Ottawa re-opening sportsfields, we are all very excited to throw a frisbee with friends again!! We want to proceed cautiously and ensure a safe and gradual return to recreational activities. The more we collaborate and follow safety guidelines and procedures, the better the chances that we can return to playing a full game of Ultimate this summer.
