What Are The Dimensions Of A Turf Ultimate Frisbee Field?

By Paige Cerulli Created: December, 2021

Ultimate frisbee is a fabulous sport, and it’s fairly simple to add an ultimate frisbee field to your home, school, or recreational facility. But before you start planning out that field, it’s important to understand the dimensions you’ll need to be working with during the planning and building process.

Ultimate Frisbee Field Dimensions

An ultimate frisbee field is built in a rectangle. It has marked end zones on both ends, and will also be marked with perimeter lines, goal lines, and field marks.

Most groups, including college and clubs, play on fields that measure 120 yards long by 40 yards deep, or 109.73 by 36.58 meters. The end zones are 25 yards, or 22.86 meters deep.

Professional teams often use football fields, which have the same 120 yard length, but which are slightly wider. If you’re planning to use a football field, then you’ll need to create a field that’s 120 yards long by 53 yards wide. The end zones will still be 25 yards deep.

Keep in mind that the size of your field doesn’t necessarily have to be official regulation sizes. If you’re planning to hold practices for smaller groups of players, or for groups of kids, then a smaller space may be helpful and will be more affordable to create.

Think carefully about how you plan to use the field both now and in the future, though. If you plan to start with small groups but grow to holding tournaments, then investing in a regular-size field can save you money in the long run.

If you’re working with a facility that has an existing football field, or that’s considering constructing one, it’s best to design a field that works for both purposes. A football field may be slightly bigger than the regular ultimate frisbee field, but you’ll save money and space by holding frisbee games on the football field.

Choosing Your Field Turf

Once you determine the dimensions of your field, you’ll need to think about the type of turf product that you’ll use to create it. Artificial turf is often ideal for these fields, since it’s low-maintenance and can be used even in inclement weather.

As you shop available turf products, consider the field dimensions that you’re working with. Knowing the dimensions of the project will help you to better estimate costs and determine which product best fits within your budget.
