Event details: 

Beach Nationals will be held on Sandbanks beach on the 8th and 9th of September 2018 hosted by Bournemouth University and Sunburn Beach Tournament committee.


***Beach Nationals 2018 is now open for registration*** 

The planned format is a three division, 8-team tournament for Men’s, Women’s, and Mixed. However, if there are insufficient entries for a particular division then it may not go ahead, and other divisions expanded according to demand (eg. two 12-team tournaments). This decision will be made once the closing date has passed. Please note that accommodation is not available for this tournament, so consider this in your planning when arranging a team. A list of nearby hotels and campsites will be sent to entrants. 


Entry is made by emailing with the following information:

- Team name

- Contact Name

- Contact Email and Phone

- Secondary Contact

- Additional relevant information (previous beach tournaments entered, finishing position, player details)


The deadline for submitting a team is Monday 7th August. After this date, if over-subscribed, the entry rules will be applied to teams as outlined below. Selected teams will be required to make payment of £160, which will be detailed in their confirmation email.



For tournaments that are over-subscribed at the closing date the following rules will apply, in order:

- First teams from clubs who have completed Club Affiliation to the UKU will have priority over those who have not

- Teams from clubs not on the blacklist (for late dropouts at previous UKU events) will get priority over those who are

- Teams finishing in the top 1/3 of places in any 2018 beach tournament will get priority over other teams*

If there remain too many teams - which cannot be separated by the above 
- for the remaining places, a lottery will be run for ONLY those inseparable teams, for those places.


Second (and lower) teams will only be considered if there are spaces after the closing date, and will be allocated spots according to date of payment.


*We're obviously not able to check that your roster is sufficiently related to the roster for that previous tournament under the same name - but please do apply some SotG to that.
