UKU Member Update
For the week of 2-9 August, there'll be nobody here. UKU is pretty much closed for a week. :-)
Most of us are away at the World Ultimate Club Championships. So don't be too surprised if no-one responds to your emails!
Good luck to all our teams representing the UK.
We are delighted to congratulate Clapham (Open) and Punt (Women's) - the UKU Tour Champions 2014.
Despite one or two close games along the way, Clapham proved to be comfortably the strongest team in the UK once again - and very possibly the strongest in Europe if London Calling is anything to go by!
Congratulations and thanks to the following people who will be managing their respective GB squads for the World Championships for Beach Ultimate WCBU 2015.
Open: Justin Foord
Women's: Francesca Scarampi, Bex Forth, Chrissy Birtwistle
Mixed: Paul Waite, Fergus Weldon
Masters-Open: Dave Grayson, Rob McGowan
Masters-Mixed: Kate Markey, Steve Balls, Si Brasseman
Grandmasters: Harry Golby
Team managers will be publishing details of their plans for trials etc in due course. Please watch our facebook page and britdisc in particular for announcements.
The Sporting Promise is a project that UK Ultimate has been involved with now for a number of years. More information about the project can be found on the UKU website and the projects own dedicated website:www.sportingpromise.co.uk. The project is really helping us to take Ultimate to schools all around the UK –
The programme is moving into a new phase, and we need your help to make it even bigger and more successful. Please keep reading – we hope you will sign up.
The application process is now open for anyone interested in playing for the Mixed Masters team at the World Championships of Beach Ultimate in Dubai (8-13th March 2015.) You can check out the tournament at http://www.wcbu2015.org/
All teams playing this weekend are reminded that:
a) all players require at least Basic membership
b) some rostering rules do still apply
UK Ultimate will be centrally organising more and more tournaments in the future - starting with the University tournaments this academic year, as previously announced on the Uni groups (see attached). This will ensure that any monies raised go back into the development of the sport in this country, and that we can continue to make improvements to the quality of all our events.
