East Midlands Open is an elite Ultimate Frisbee team based primarily in Leicester. The club competes in the UK Ultimate Open Tour series and in the UKU National Championships every year, qualifying by capturing five consecutive Midlands Regionals titles.
The club has sent teams to several world and European championships and has produced players who have gone on to become some of the best in the country – including five who have played for the Great Britain World Games team, widely acknowledged as the highest standard of Ultimate in the world. Others have played for Great Britain at various levels, including Open, Mixed, under-23 and Junior teams.
We have consistently been one of the best performing teams in the UK, reaching a high point last season as EMO finished second in the UKU Tour, third at UKU Nationals, ninth at the European Ultimate Championship Finals in Frankfurt and 15th at the World Ultimate Club Championships in Lecco, Italy.
In 2015 and beyond the club will be seeking to capitalise on the momentum we have generated in the past two years and solidify our place in the top three of UK Ultimate. We will also be trying to build on our strong recent showings in European competition and continue to improve as a team and as a club.
