 Following the introduction of the new Club Outdoor Competition Structure [UKU Ranking Events], we have revised and updated the relevant rules documents to reflect the change. 

Beach Nationals 2019 - Update

After a number of years being run by the team in Bournemouth, for 2019 we looked to move the UKU Beach Nationals competition to a different location to provide players across the United Kingdom with a greater opportunity to play Beach Ultimate. Unfortunately there has been little success in this so we are in the process of talking to Bournemouth Council to re-return to the southern coast to host the event again this year. We hoped to have finalised the details of the event by now but unfortunately there has been a delay in the process.

 

GB at World Under 24 Championships

International Ultimate is back next week, this time its the World Under 24 Championships (WU24), taking place in Heidelberg, Germany 13th - 20th July. 50 teams from countries across the globe will come together and compete to be crowned world champions.

The GB teams kick off their campaigns with games against Australia (GBU24 Women), Panama (GBU24 Men) and Netherlands (GBU24 Mixed) on Sunday.

European Championship Review

Congratulations to the GB Mixed and Open teams who both won Gold at the recent European Ultimate Championships (EUC) in Gyor, Hungary. Both teams retained their 2015 titles in closely fought games, with the Mixed team beating France 13-12 and the Open team winning a hotly anticipated game against Germany 15-14. Both teams were unbeaten throughout the tournament, with the Mixed team ending EUC with a points difference of +90 and Open finishing with a points difference of +85*. 


The GB Womens’ team finished the tournament in 11th place. Although a lower placing than previous European Championships (5th place in 2015), the women had several notable results throughout the week including a 13-14 loss to eventual silver medallists Switzerland and 13-15 loss to subsequent semi-finalists Italy. Credit should also be given to the GB Womens’ team for a valiant fight back from 2-8 down to 11-13 in an exciting pre-quarter game against France. Results across the Womens’ division show growing strength and depth in this division; a promising outlook for women’s ultimate in Europe.
