The other COIQ events will be taking place on 19th-20th January.

If we find that this has happened then you will be disqualified from both tournaments.

How to Enter Events: https://www.ukultimate.com/system/files/UKU%20Event%20Entry%20Guidelines.pdf

 

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 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.

·         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.

·        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.



Club Open & Women's Indoor Nationals will be held at Cranford Superdome on the weekend of 16th-17th February 2019.


We do not intend to provide accommodation at this club event.

 

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.

UKU Club Open Tour 3 - B-Tour South

Submitted by megprice on Thu, 03/05/2018 - 8:49am
Event date: 
14 Jul 2018 (All day) - 15 Jul 2018 (All day)
Event details: 

***THIS EVENT HAS NOW BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO NOT ENOUGH TEAMS ENTERING BY THE ENTRY DEADLINE***

 

 UKU Open Tour - B-Tour South will be held at Edenbridge RFC on the weekend of 14th/15th July. 

 

This is alongside A-Tour and B-South divisions at the event in Birmingham on the same weekend (of which the details can be found here).  This will be similar to to B-Tour South event held in 2017. 

 

Entry for this tournament will open on Thursday 3rd May until Friday 1st June 2018 for all teams. Teams are required to enter using the UKU Event Entry Form. You should enter the "UKU Club Open & Women's Tour 3 (14-15 July / £220) Birmingham/Edenbridge" event and then select your preference for EITHER BIRMINGHAM or EDENBRIDGE when filling in the form. 

We hope to be able to accommodate everyone between these two tournaments, but should the event(s) be oversubscribed at the time of the deadline, a set of allocation criteria to award spaces will be followed (outlined below).

When the number of teams exceeds the capacity, teams within the last-used criteria-group will be split according to the subsequent criteria:

  1. “Protected” teams [*1] (not applicable)
  2. “Invited” teams (GB, international, new/extremely local [*2] (if applicable)
  3. Teams assigned to the same region as the event [*3]
  4. Teams ranked in the top 32 teams UKU Tour 2017
  5. UKU-Affiliated clubs
  6. “Local teams” allocated to the other region, based on an algorithm that looks at relative distances between teams and the two tournament locations.  
  7. Remaining teams, in order of their total tour points from UKU Tour 2017
  8. Teams with no record from the previous year will be below those with a ranking, and will be separated by drawing lots should the need arise.
[*1] These teams are:Clapham A, Chevron Action Flash, EMO 1, Reading 1, Fire of London 1, Glasgow 1, Devon 1, Manchester 1, Ka-Pow!, Clapham 1, SMOG, Flump.  FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT these teams are NOT guaranteed to play in the A Tour at all three events, they are simply guaranteed entry to that venue.


[*2] New teams, foreign teams, teams representing GB or much-changed teams believed likely by the competitions committee (based on e.g. known personnel or early season results) to finish in the top 24.  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.  


[*3] E.g. at OWT2 Cardiff, teams allocated to the “South region” will have priority.
 

If the tournament is full then the team(s) not allocated a space initially will be placed on a wait list to be awarded one should one become available due to a drop out. Although please note that late entries may be charged an additional £30 fine and any teams entering less than two weeks before any of the Tour Series tournaments may be fined an additional £50 by UKU.

 

Once the entry deadline has passed, the list of confirmed teams will be published on the UKU website, sent out as one of our Event Newsletters and posted on Britdisc. 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.comand we will be able to confirm whether or not you have been awarded a space.

 

The payment deadline for ALL teams is also Friday 1st June

 

Upon submitting the UKU Event Entry form on behalf of your team, you agree to make payment of the full team entry fee by the stated payment deadline. For any team that does not send payment by the deadline and/or the payment has not been received, their place can be cancelled and awarded to the next team on the wait-list at the discretion of UKU. 

If any teams pull out following the specified entry deadline(s) (as above) 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 your team is placed on the waitlist and not awarded a space, you will be offered a full refund.

***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 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 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.

 

ENTRY RULES

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.
