University Men's & Women's Outdoor National Championships 2018/19

Submitted by megprice on Tue, 23/10/2018 - 12:12pm
Event date: 
13 Apr 2019 (All day) - 14 Apr 2019 (All day)
Event details: 

UMWON will be at the Riverside Sports Complex in Nottingham. 

 

Unfortunately, the way that the University holidays, Easter weekend and exams all come together this year has made it particularly difficult to find the “ideal” date to hold this event on. As such, we have made the decision to go with the 13th/14th April taking into account the following:

  • The Nottingham venue is only available from the 13th/14th April onwards, meaning that we are unable to use the venue on the earlier “preferred” dates of 6th/7th April and 30th/31st March.
  • Easter falls on 20th/21st April this year. Generally we aim to avoid public holidays as this can make it particularly difficult for all teams to attend.
  • Later dates are known to be particularly bad for the Scottish universities, with at least 5 or 6 universities having exam periods that overlap or start on 27th/28th April this year, which makes attending the event especially difficult or impossible for them if held on that weekend. 
  • Holiday periods vary quite widely this year - even across England - with some university holidays starting in March, and others starting on the 13th/14th April, or even as late as Easter weekend. 
  • The feedback collected from the University President Facebook groups concluded that all teams competing at the same venue (Nottingham) on 13th/14th April was preferable to splitting up the competition across several venues on one of the earlier “preferred” dates (as above).
    We will investigate splitting up the divisions at this competition in future as part of the review process with BUCS, but for 2019 at least, we felt it was best to keep everyone together as expected.


Taking the above points into account, combined with the fact that the Scottish universities have particularly suffered with the event being held on one of the later dates in the last few years, hopefully it is clear why we are going to go ahead with this date in 2019. Whilst we understand that this may not be the easiest date for some, we hope that the large amount of notice will enable teams to put the event in their calendar early so that plans can start to be made now.

 

To clarify, entries for the Men’s competitions are combined with the entry into the BUCS league, so if you do not think you will be able to attend the Nationals competition then we recommend that you speak to your AU as soon as possible. For the Women’s events, entries via your AU will be open after UWOR on Tuesday 5th March and will close on Thursday 21st March 2019. Only teams that have qualified will be eligible to enter. 

 

The Alumni Cup will not be held in 2019, however we may look to reintroduce the event in a different format in the future.

This is a new building and new 3g pitch.  Its should be finished October 18.  I do not know whether it will be as "warm" as the previous pitch used! So I would prepare by bringing underlayers and leggings etc.  No metal studs.  It is astro turf and the pitch should be the same size as the old. Once I have further info, I will update you! 

Thanks

UKU Club Open & Women's Indoor Nationals 2019

Submitted by megprice on Wed, 20/06/2018 - 3:00pm
Event date: 
16 Feb 2019 (All day) - 17 Feb 2019 (All day)
Event details: 

Club Open and Women's Indoor Nationals will be co-located at a huge indoor 3G rubbercrumb venue in Cranford, London on the weekend of 16th-17th February 2019.

 

CWIN ENTRIES OPEN: 7th December - 4th January 

COIN ENTRIES OPEN: 21st January -  28th January 

 

For the Open division, only teams that qualified through the Club Open Indoor Regional tournaments are eligible to enter, however, for the Women’s division there are 24 spaces available. If the Women’s division is oversubscribed at the time of the deadline, the following rules will apply, in order:

  • 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 not on the blacklist (for late dropouts at previous events) will get priority over those who are
  • Teams from UKU-Affiliated clubs will be given priority over those who aren't
  • Teams finishing in the top half of the same event in the previous year will be given priority.
  • To fill any remaining spaces at the tournament, the remaining teams who have not already been awarded a place will be selected by random draw.

Places MAY still be available later on a first-come first-served basis if the tournament is under-subscribed, and if the additional team(s) would not adversely affect the schedule, but no team - no matter how strong - would be guaranteed entry; if the tournament is full then the team(s) will be placed on a wait list to be awarded a space should one become available due to a drop out. Although please note that late entries may be charged an additional £30 fine.

 

Once the entry deadline has passed, the list of confirmed teams will be published on the UKU website and sent out as one of our Event Newsletters. Please do not expect an individual confirmation email - you need to keep an eye out for the announcement! However, if it’s after the deadline and you’re unsure whether your team has made it and/or you can’t find the information on the above, please email events@ukultimate.com and we will be able to confirm whether or not you have been awarded a space.

 

If any teams pull out following the specified entry deadline a penalty will occur:

  • Teams that drop out after the entry deadline date will be liable for 50% of the fees.
  • Teams that drop out in the fortnight prior to the tournament will be liable for the full team fee and will not be refunded.

If you have any questions, please email events@ukultimate.com.
