Color of Ultimate showcase at D1 Nationals

The Color of Ultimate showcase game is designed to highlight talents of players of color, connect participants through a unique experience, publicize the sport to a wider community and encourage more people of color to play ultimate. We are so proud to have two of our players from Bella Donna play in the Color of Ultimate showcase game! The Color of Ultimate game took place this year on May 30th in Milwaukee at the Uihlein Soccer Park.

Jane and Gabby on the sidelines

Jane Zheng and Gabby Stark-Torrentara were both chosen to play in the game and made a name for Wisconsin Womxns Ultimate. On a very hot day, on turf, in strong winds, both Jane and Gabby played incredibly. They both stayed chilly, made smart decisions and had smooth throws both up and down wind!

In case you missed this game, go watch it!!


Midwest Throwdown (MWTD) 2022

Bella Donna and Atropa were making moves in Colombia, MO March 5th and 6th. A weekend full of warm weather, throwing in the wind, learning from teammates, and cheering on each other’s teams. Needless to say, some great ultimate was played. A great first tournament of the season for Bella and second tournament of the season for Atropa.

Bella Donna is hosting a one day hat tournament just for women! This will be an event that allows college players to play alongside women from the Madison ultimate community. Don’t worry if you’ve never played before, there will be women of all experience levels!

What is a hat tournament? It’s a tournament in which players join individually rather than as a team. Our coach will be making teams the day of, so make sure you show up on time to get signed up as well as warm up!

Please sign up for the tournament early to make the process easier, and we can’t wait to see you on Sunday, October 1st!

The start of a new semester is just a few days away! For many incoming freshmen and transfer students, this is an exciting and nerve racking time. A great way to feel a part of the University and make new friends while staying active is to join a sports club! Women’s Ultimate Frisbee is a great club to join for this reason, even if (or especially if) you have no prior experience playing ultimate!

We have two teams here at UW-Madison that are recognized by the governing body of USA Ultimate (USAU). During the fall, both teams practice together. Practices start September 12 and go until November 2, 2016 from 4:30-6:30 at University Bay Fields each week on Monday and Wednesdays. There are also team practices on Fridays that are optional for those interested in Atropa and mandatory for those interested in joining Bella Donna that will be from 4:30-5:30.

We can’t wait to get out on the field with everyone!

BDL forever & ever & ever
