Event details: 

The UKU Junior (U20) Open Indoor Championships 2014 will be held at Aldersley Leisure Village, Wolverhampton (WV6 9NW) on the weekend of Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd March 2014. There are 4 good size halls and there is balcony space and a cafe/bar onsite, as well as supermarkets nearby.

Please use the online entry form but do check the details below.

Accommodation

Hopefully the central location will mean that the majority of teams might be able to travel home rather than needing accommodation on the Saturday night, but for some of you that clearly won't be possible. Obviously you are free to organise your own plans, and places like www.travelodge.co.uk (and there are a number around the motorways or Wolverhampton!) often have good deals (e.g. family rooms which could sleep 4 from £19 per night), and there are a smattering of Youth Hostels nearby (www.yha.org.uk).

If you are really struggling for accommodation, please get in touch on admin@ukultimate.com and we will do what we can to assist.

Eligibility

As per the UKU Junior eligibility rules, to be eligible for this UKU under-20 division you must have been born on or after January 1st 1995.

Please contact Benji Heywood (doc@ukultimate.com) if there are any queries.

If you are a player or a small group of players without enough for a full team, then it may be possible to arrange for you to join up with another team; everyone involved in Junior Ultimate wants you there. HOWEVER you must explain your situation to UK Ultimate (email to: admin@ukultimate.com is sufficient) and have them ratify which is the most appropriate team for you to join with. There have been a few issues in recent years with combinations of players/teams that have not been checked or verified appropriately; please be organised, up front, and go through the correct systems.

Entry and payment

The cost of the tournament is £80 per team. If you want to come YOU MUST FILL IN THE FORM FOUND AT THIS LINK

Payment details will be sent to you by email once you have filled in the form. If your school/club require an invoice in order to make the payment, please make this clear on the web entry form and provide any additional details that will be needed.

The closing date will be Friday 14th February to confirm your place at the event. Please get in touch if the payment process means you expect to miss the closing date. This will be fine as long as you are entered in time, but please get in touch to make sure we know about it.

Other info

Please note: Clubs are welcome to enter more than one team, but in the event that the tournament is oversubscribed clubs entering multiple teams may find lower-ranked teams placed on a waiting list. However, the tournament has a large capacity and this is relatively unlikely based on previous years' entries.

Essential: Do not enter a team unless you have AT LEAST 7 fit players who are able to travel.

Advisable: Have at least one non-playing adult with the team, in case they need to accompany injured players to hospital or similar.
