BUCS to launch new league competition for women’s ultimate

British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) will move to implement a league-based format for Women's outdoor ultimate to harness the Higher Education growth and stability of participation in Women’s Ultimate.  BUCS launched a new Sport Review process in May 2018, and this has reached the end of Cycle One and after an extensive consultation, a variety of new programmes have been approved.  BUCS – celebrating 100 years of British University Sport in 2019 – are consulting National Governing Bodies, its members and representatives from universities across the UK.  The changes coincide with the conclusion of BUCS Inclusion Week and through alterations to BUCS competitions hope to enshrine the values celebrated over the last seven days.

GB Womens Masters squad 2019

GB lionWe are excited to announce that the following players have been selected to represent Great Britain in the Women's Masters division at the European Ultimate Championships to be held later this year.

 

Junior Open Outdoor Nationals & Schools' National Championships 2019 - Entries Open!

We are pleased to announce that entries for Junior Open Outdoor Nationals & Schools' National Championships 2019 are now open!

 

The event is being held at University of Leicester Playing Fields, Stoughton Road in Leicester on Sunday 30th June 2019. It is a ONE DAY event.

 

Entries are open in all three divisions: Under-14, Under-17 and Junior (Under-20). All divisions are classified as Open, meaning that any combination of male and female players is fine.

Let’s not forget the great work of our volunteers who help us put on the events that you know and love!

It has come to our attention that some teams are forgetting how important it is to treat our tournament volunteers and organisers with the appropriate politeness and respect.

 

Without local clubs and universities using their spare time and effort to help us run and organise our events, including helping teams with cheap accommodation options to bring down tournament costs, we would struggle to deliver the excellent events that you have come to know and expect. Please bear this in mind when you’re next attending a UKU tournament or being hosted in someone’s home for the event.
