You will find on this English page all necessary information to come play Ultimate Frisbee in Lyon, in a joyful atmosphere and within the Spirit of the Game! Enjoy your visit!

A bit of history

The Club d’Ultimate des Gônes was founded in 2016 in Lyon by three Ultimate Frisbee enthusiasts:

  • Jérémy ENGLER, who remained president, coach and more during the club’s first three years before leaving for Alsace,
  • Théry PHILIPPINE, first club secretary then member of the event commission, the smile of the club before leaving to throw discs in Saint-Etienne,
  • Frédéric CANTEGREIL, a seasoned veteran and current deputy secretary of the club.

The three are supported in their approach by

  • Cédric ENGLER, first treasurer of the club,
  • Robin DISTELZWEY, genius artist who gave (and still gives!) the club its visual identity, created the logo and designed our shirts.

What is the objective of the founding members? Sharing their passion for Ultimate while promoting its core values: a mixed, self-officiated and non-contact sport, which grants importance to fair-play with a focus on tolerance, respect and a friendly atmosphere.

Today

In 2019 the club gathers more than 40 members, organises two training sessions a week and will present 3 teams for the indoor federal championship – one of which will play in National 3 division – as well as two teams during the outdoor season.

In accordance with the founding members’ objective, every profile is welcome to join the Gônes: beginner or experienced, leisure or competition, all those who share the Spirit of the Game and the will to have a good time!

The club organised its first tournament, the Conflu’Hat, in June 2017 and reiterated the experience in October 2019. We also received a phase of the Mixed championship in 2018.
