Parents, educators and event planners now have a new source to help them provide a fun time at their future events. BeUltimate Sports is a new sport event company here in Lee’s Summit and they are ready to help out with your next birthday party, large corporate event, fundraiser, company picnic or a employee recognition day just to name a few.
BeUltimate sports was inspired by a love for sports and the desire to create a memorable event experience. They currently offer Ultimate Archery, Ultimate Bubble Soccer, Ultimate Nerf Rivalry, Ultimate Bossaball and Ultimate Bar Challenge.
At this year’s Downtown Days Festival the Ultimate Bar challenge proved to be a huge success with festival attendees. Their premier sport is Ultimate Bossaball which mixes parts of volleyball, soccer and gymnastics. Bossaball is played on a 45×60 inflated court with trampolines inset on each side of the net. At this time BeUltimate sports is the only company in the United States that provides this sport.
The owners of BeUltimate Sports, Luke Rogers and Steve Uhl, have strong connections to Lee’s Summit. Luke lived in Lee’s Summit until he was transferred by Hy-Vee to Springfield as a HR Manager. Steve worked at the Hy-Vee Store on NE Rice road for six years rising to Assistant Director until leaving the company in 2017 to run the Sports company full time.
Uhl says both he and Luke loved unique forms of sports entertainment and “as the business developed we realized that we were in a position to pursue a true passion”. Uhl feels the business will be a successful one “Because people are always looking for something new and exciting to do”.
