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.
We are excited to announce another UKU Level 1 Coaching Course in GLASGOW, on Saturday 6th May 2017. This course will be held at Glasgow University.
