UKU Member Update
Following the call for volunteers to fill positions on the competitions committee we're please to annouce Dan Godbold has joined the committee as our new mixed coordinator.
Happy International Women’s Day!
Here at the UKU Women’s Committee we’ve been working hard to create and promote ways to get more women playing. Today we are launching a project designed to do just this, introducing...
The UKU Women's Find A Team initiative!
This is a new initiative by the UKU to match players to women's teams, or to match players with each other to form new club teams. The aim is to promote the development of Women’s Ultimate in the UK and raise awareness of playing opportunities available across the country.
We would like to provide an update on plans for UKU Tour 2017 in the Open division. It has been clear for some years that the structure is not scalable as the number of Open and Women’s teams continues to grow. We have been planning for some time that we would start to make changes in 2017, although we would obviously prefer to have resolved all of the issues earlier than this.
In 2017 we are only making changes to the Open division, but we recognise there is a body of opinion in the community that is asking for a broader review of the Tour structure and timing. We will have an ongoing consultation process about the competition structure and calendar over the next few months.
Further update 17th Feb:
UK Masters Nationals will be held on September 9th. This is the qualification route to World Masters Ultimate Club Championships 2018.
The venue will be confirmed in a future update.
