The invention of ultimate

ultimate in columbia

This is a picture of the annual varsity vs. alumni ultimate game that takes place in the parking lot at Columbia High School in Maplewood, New Jersey, where the first game of ultimate was played back in 1968.

Here’s the parking lot on maps.

An interesting ultimate fact- movie producer Joel Silver (Matrix, Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, & Predator) was one of its inventors and is to have said “Someday people all over the world will be playing this game“. He was right.
