Thank you Harvest London

Following the conclusion of our Reset the Stall campaign we want to say a special thank you to our new team of corporate sponsors and partners, which we are delighted to announce, includes Harvest London.

Harvest London is a vertical farming startup based in Leyton, supplying speciality produce all across London.  “Our vertical farms allow us to bring production closer to the point of consumption, going from harvest to delivery in a matter of hours instead of days or weeks. Covid has shown us that we need a more sustainable food system and we’re working towards that!”

CEO, Chris Davies, first played Ultimate at the grassroots level in Manila, Philippines over 15 years ago, when he moved back to the UK he played briefly with Fire and then moved on to Tooting Tigers and had a couple of years with Clapham. He also played GB Men’s Beach.  “Having played in the Philippines and helped with the first generation of Ultimate players in the Philippines, I recognise the importance of the support structure that UK Ultimate brings to our game. Ultimate shaped a good decade of my life and I’m proud to be supporting UKU during this tough time.”

Thank you Harvest London!

Thank you - we did it - we reset the stall

Our Reset the Stall campaign finished yesterday, and we’re delighted to announce that after including a few donations that were sent by bank transfer we raised approximately £35,000 from 311 donations.  Thank you!  That is really incredible - and means we have essentially avoided the short-term financial damage due to so little Ultimate being possible in 2020.  Just for fun we put the supporter-comments through a word cloud (that gives greater prominence to words appearing with higher frequency) and here's the output.

There is of course a great deal more to do to make the most of whatever opportunities to play Ultimate lie ahead in 2021-22.  But for today, we just want to say THANKS!

Return to Play Update - 9th October

As per previous announcements we confirm that we will move to Phase D of our Phased Return to Play from Monday 12th October.  Please note the additional important comments below about Indoors and government references to "contact sports"

There are some changes in the final version of Phase D Guidance compared to the draft that we published in August.

  • Clubs are required to go through a minimum of 3 sessions at Phase B or C prior to moving to Phase D.  This is in order that your players become accustomed to all the adjustments that are needed to minimise the risk of transmission, and to make sure your club systems and plans are working as expected.
  • We have included some guidance about Spirit Circles.  We encourage teams to continue this tradition, but of course all the players in the circle should be 2m from their neighbours.  It will be a big circle, but it will still work - at least while the maximum number of players is still 30.

Thank you Cartwright Homes
