Tournament Standards and Guidelines


If you are running an ultimate event with or for UK Ultimate please contact the Events Coordinator (benji.heywood[at] to receive a zip file with all the documents you will need, including insurance certificate, risk assessment templates, incident forms etc as well as an overview of what you will need to do to follow our procedures.


We can also sanction your events that are not part of our own event programme - for example beginner events, hat tournaments or summer leagues. The benefits of sanctioning, and the requirements it places on you, are described in the Sanctioning Guidelines. The main benefit of having your event sanctioned is that both the players and the organisers are covered by UKU's insurance; in return we require that everyone is a member and that some basic safety guidelines are followed. More information in the Sanctioning Guidelines, or contact us on benji.heywood[at]
