Event details: 

London Regionals will take place at Richardson Evans Memorial Playing Fields on Sat 26th July.

The event is open to any ultimate team based in London.  We expect five teams will qualify for UKU Nationals on 23-24 August in Southampton.  This will be confirmed prior to the event.

The London event will be run on a very simple basis (rather like LWL event-days at the same venue).  Toilets and changing rooms are available; we do not expect to have any food on sale.

TEAMS THAT EXPECT/WANT/HOPE TO QUALIFY FOR NATIONALS AND/OR XEUCF SHOULD TAKE NOTE OF THE ROSTER/ELIGIBILITY RULES THAT GOVERN REGIONALS-NATIONALS-EUCS AS THEY DIFFER FROM UKU TOUR.

See UKU Competition Rules 2014 (section 2.3 in particular)

 

CLOSING DATE FOR ENTRIES IS WED 16TH JULY. 

PAYMENT IS REQUIRED BY WED 23RD JULY.

Accomodation and transport: 

This venue is very easy to reach by public transport:

  • Get a train or tube to Putney station (NOT East Putney!!!!) and then exit.
  • Directly outside, is a bus stop where the 85 heads straight to the fields.
  • Get on the 85 and it will head out of Putney and onto the back roads alongside the A3.
  • Stay with the bus until it reaches a T junction with the A3.
  • It will turn right here and then you need to wait until the bus has passed Asda and Texaco on the left and get off by the Roehampton Campus stop.
  • The fields are there on your left.

You can get to Putney quickly from Clapham Junction, Vauxhall, Waterloo and also on the District line.

You should be able to reach the grounds easily from places like Kingston (e.g. using the #85 in the opposite direction) and Wimbledon but please check http://www.tfl.gov.uk/

Driving

You can only get to the fields from the southbound A3.
The turning into the grounds is at the bottom of the hill after Roehampton, just after a large ASDA superstore (on the left) and basically opposite the Robin Hood Gate entrance to Richmond Park.

If you are coming from outside London the simplest route is to use Jn 10 of the M25 which puts you on the A3. Arguably it might be quicker to cross London if coming from the North or West depending on the time of day.

If coming North up the A3 towards London, you will NOT be able to access the fields unless you turn around and head back down the southbound side of the road. To do this, follow the A3 towards London and at the Robin Hood roundabout (A308 to Kingston on your left) head straight on and then take the next left turn, signposted to Putney Vale Cemetery. This will take you under the road and allow you to join the A3 heading south on the other side. Re-join the A3, stay in the left hand lane and then take the left turn which will be sign-posted Richardson Evans.

If you miss the turning, as it's quite possible to do, then don't panic, get in the right hand lane and do another one 180 degree turn at the roundabout and try again!
