Event details: 

Beach Nationals will be held on Sandbanks beach on the 16th and 17th of September 2017 hosted by Bournemouth University and Sunburn Beach Tournament committee.

The INFO PACK and SCHEDULE can be found as PDFs at the bottom of this page.

Beach Nationals 2017 is now open for registration.  These will be held on the 16th and 17th September on Sandbanks beach, the same location as last year's competition.  Please read on or look here for more information.

The planned format is a three division, 8-team tournament for Open, Women’s, and Mixed. However, if there are insufficient entries for a particular division then it may not go ahead, and another division expanded according to demand. 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 sunburn.bournemouth@outlook.com 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 Thursday 10th 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.

 

ENTRY RULES

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

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

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

 - Teams finishing in the top 1/3 of the same event in the previous year*

- Teams finishing in the top 1/3 of places in any 2017 beach tournament*

 

 Additional notes:

First teams will NOT get priority over second teams - it is so easy to simply change the name of a 'second team' to avoid such a rule, which would disadvantage those 'proper' clubs who have a real identity.

 If spaces remain after the closing date, teams will be awarded spaces based on the order of DATE (not exact time) that payment was sent. This will be assumed to be the date payment was received unless there is additional information (e.g. screenshot of transfer, postmark on stamp etc.)

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.

 

 

*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 we expect teams to apply some SotG to that.

UKU Nationals (EUCR-W) 2017

Event date: 
26 Aug 2017 (All day) - 28 Aug 2017 (All day)
Event details: 

Thanks to all teams who entered Nationals - registration is now closed.

***********************
We are pleased to now confirm the schedule and the Info Pack for UKU Nationals 2017.

As ever, the info pack contains a great deal of information about important things, like where to park and where you can or can't spectate from - do make sure to familiarise yourslef with everything you need to know.

 

Pitches 1 & 3 will be streamed live by Fanseat and the UKU Media Team. You can watch the games on their website.

With a fantastic 9 Mixed, 9 Women's, and 9 Open division games, the majority of teams will be filmed at some point - if you're one of the unlucky Open teams not getting a pool game streamed then you'd better make the top 6 to get on camera! And if you're following along at home and trying to catch up on the non-streamed games, the schedule link above will be updated with scores after each round of play.

 

Please note that the End of Year Celebration Dinner has been cancelled due to lack of ticket sales. We came close to our minimum number of sales, but didn't quite get there. We've emailed all the individuals that booked already and will be organising refunds today. Sorry it didn't work out this time!

How to register: 

Registration is now closed.

 

However, teams are required to register their team and submit their roster on ultimate central - http://euf.ultimatecentral.com/e/eucrw-owx-2017.

This is an EUCS requirement so teams need to make sure this is done before the tournament weekend.

Accomodation and transport: 

Camping is available at this tournament on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday night.
The cost is £5 per tent for the weekend if bought in advance here, £10 if bought on the day.
To book camping please head here to pay and receive your confirmation. Make sure that you print off your confirmation and bring it with you to exchange for your camping ticket on arrival.
Your camping ticket must be attached to your tent’s guy rope. Staff will be checking to ensure that no unauthorised tents are in the campsite.
Any belongings left in the campsite area are at the risk of the owner and both the venue and UKU take no responsibility for the loss or damage of any items.
The toilet facilities in the Pavilion will be open overnight for those that need them. Please ensure that you take a light with you so you can get to and from the building safely.

Camping rules (not rocket science - don't be that person):

  • No cooking of any description is allowed in the camping area
  • Ensure that you pitch your tent in the areas outlined
  • Walkways need to be kept clear so people can navigate their way safely through the campsite.
  • Please ensure that you put your rubbish in the bins provided
  • Be considerate of others who may be trying to sleep nearby

The venue is reasonably easy to find on your SatNav, but do make sure to look in the Info Pack to find the location of the car park and the overflow car park.

Through the UKU Entry Form

Cut off date for entries is Saturday 29th April, where we expect to have received payment as well as the entry form. We have a maximum limit of 48 slots, which we’d love to fill - we were a bit light last year...!

 

If we're oversubscribed at the closing date, the UKU will determine which teams earn a space according to their usual policies - below, in order of application :

 

- Teams ranked in the top 32 of the previous tournament
- Foreign teams believed likely by the UKU Competitions Committee to finish in the top 16
- Teams whose participation the UKU Competitions Committee believe will benefit the growth of
Ultimate – for example, but not limited to, local teams who may not yet be ready to travel to other
tournaments, or teams based in underrepresented geographical areas
- Teams unable to enter the previous event due to over-subscription or non-entry
- Remaining teams, in order of their finish at the previous tournament

 

Any team that drops out with less than a week to go will not get a refund, those who drop out the week after entry cut off will receive a 50% refund, so please make sure you’ve got your team committed. We want to have as many of you there as possible, but please make sure you’ve got the numbers so that we can get the schedule published as early as possible, hence the refund policy.

 

Accomodation and transport: 

Free on site camping at BCFC is available, from friday night with plenty of room.  Shower block and toilets will be available all day and throughout the night.

Cheltenham has lots of hotels and B&B's which can be found on the web. In terms of location, the nearest village is called Bishops Cleeve, where there are a few take aways - the chippy is pretty good and a good size tesco's with a Costa coffee inside. 

Please bring: 

Good weather, good spirit and the usual excellent attitude.

Appropriate clothing for all weathers - we can get it all over the weekend.

Also make sure all your belongings are tagged with your name on them - such as boots, water bottles etc - after this tour, what's not claimed will go to the charity shops!!

We think so, so signup and get involved. 

Signup (mobile friendly): http://bit.ly/2mbZu1h

Accomodation and transport: 

Camping will be provided on site. This will be at no extra cost but please say on the form if you think you may camp as we'd rather be over than under prepared for you. It will once again be at the Maiden Castle University Sports Facility located here: https://goo.gl/1nsvl7 . It's about a half hour walk from the station and about 15 minutes from the town centre. However there is also plenty of parking should you need it and cars can be left onsite. See you there.

Please bring: 

You'll need boots, water; money - for food and the party; and a tent if you're camping. The optimists among you should bring sunscreen, sunglasses and a parasol. The less optimistic umbrellas, coats and warm clothing. If you've got space then perhaps both. This years theme is 'The Ultimate Showdown', that means good guys, bad guys and explosions! Whether it's your red swim trunks or green body paint, we look forward to seeing your super costumes. Team Cap or team Ironman? Prepare to be assembled, for the Durham Hat 2017. 

UKU University Mixed Outdoor Nationals 2016-17

Event date:

Event details: 

 

University Mixed Outdoor Nationals will be held on the weekend of 25-26 March at Leicester University.

IMPORTANT UPDATE. ALL Teams please read whole announcement and complete survery here.

 

Update 24th March

Info Pack V2.1 includes a pitch map, a link to the league vine website with the schedule and updated tournament rules.

 

Update 21st March

Info Pack 2.0 provides some further details including a reminder of the gender rules being used at the event.


Update 17th March

Information Pack version 1 provides some additional details.  This document will be updated in the final days before the event.

Registration is closed.  Teams that enter at this stage will be placed on a waiting list.

****************************************************************************

Update 13 March 2017: The teams listed at the bottom of the page are confirmed.

We are aware that some teams are going to want help with accommodation.  The event is large and we probably cannot help everyone.  Please use the following form to let us know your situation:  https://goo.gl/forms/5AxiNVErNxvWHCab2

Even if you do NOT want or need help it would be great if you could confirm this via the form please.

The UKU event entry form will remain open and available, but teams entering now will be placed on a waiting list.

*****************************************************************************

For this Mixed event, each point will be played with 3 of one gender and 4 of the other. Make sure you have enough of both!

For the gender balance of each point, we will be playing the 'Endzone Decides' rule from the 2017 WFDF Appendix (instead of the old 'Offence Decides' rule) - check out the rule below. Make sure you're familiar with how that all works!

 

A7.3. Ratio Rule B (“end zone decides” rule):
A7.3.1. At the start of the game, after the first disc flip, an additional disc flip happens
with the winner selecting which end zone is “End zone A”, with the other end
zone becoming “End zone B”. At the start of each point the Team that is at End
zone A must choose the gender ratio. This process applies for the first half. For
the second half, at the start of each point the Team that is at End zone B must
choose the gender ratio.

 


We'll run a Swiss Draw format like last year (similar to Windmill) which will give us a fair tournament with lots of close matches even though we expect a sizeable number of teams. We have capacity for 48 teams this year. 

We do not guarantee to be able to provide accommodation for everyone, but we will try and source as much as we can with local players or in scout huts. Please do not ask for accommodation unless you really need it as it's likely to be a challenge for an event this size!

UKU Club Mixed Indoor Nationals 2016/17

Submitted by benheywood on Mon, 25/07/2016 - 11:11am
Event date: 
4 Mar 2017 (All day) - 5 Mar 2017 (All day)
Event details: 

CXIN 2016-17 will be held on these dates at the excellent new Derby Arena (DE24 8AN).

 

They have 3 excellent courts set up in the infield of the velodrome, so it will be exciting to see all the cyclists whizzing by (but rest assured there is floor to ceiling netting to protect them from your errant throws). As befits a brand new venue like this, the facilities are excellent, and there's loads of chill-out space in the spectator seating for the velodrome. It's going to be fantastic, and located very nicely in the centre of the country.

 

There will be space for at least 24 teams.

The tournament will be Indoor Mixed, requiring a 3/2 gender split at all times. We are currently discussing whether to apply the new WFDF gender rules from the 2017 update (endzone decides ratio, rather than offence decides ratio) although all other rules will be in line with the 2013 UKU indoor rules. Please make sure you have enough of each gender!

Games will run from around 9am-5pm each day, though if demand is very high we MAY look to extend the saturday.


 

Registration is now open through the UKU Entry Form. Your place is reserved only when you have both entered AND paid. Teams who are unsuccessful in entering will of course be refunded.

The closing date will be Friday 9th Feb 2016, early enough to give those teams who are successful time to plan their logistics. If spaces remain after that date, we will of course continue to accept entries on a first come first served basis providing that doing so does not adversely affect the schedule for other teams - but we will be able to confirm places for entered teams at that time.

NOTE however that unless you finished highly at the same event last year, beating the closing date does not guarantee you a space. There is likely to be a large element of first-come-first-served in who gets in, as per that fourth criterion below - please read the entry rules properly. This particular tournament does tend to fill quickly.

We expect to have space for 24 teams. If the event is oversubscribed at the closing date, the method for determining entrants is below.

 

The venue is a normal hardcourt indoor surface - you will need clean. non-marking indoor footwear.

 

We do not expect to provide accommodation at this tournament. Please get in touch if this is a major problem for you, but we are unlikely to be able to help you much beyond putting you in touch with local players who MAY be able to help.

 


 

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

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

·         Teams finishing in the top half of the same event in the previous year will be given priority.

·         First teams will NOT get priority over second teams - it is so easy to simply change the name of a 'second team' to avoid such a rule, which would disadvantage those 'proper' clubs who have a real identity.

·         Teams will be awarded spaces based on the order of DATE (not exact time) that payment was sent. This will be assumed to be the date payment was received unless there is additional information (e.g. screenshot of transfer, postmark on stamp etc.)

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.
