Entry for this tournament will open on Friday 5th January until Friday 13th April for all UK teams. Teams are required to enter using the UKU Event Entry Form

The early deadline for international teams has now passed and teams have been emailed directly to confirm their spot. If any teams wish to enter late, please do so using the UKU Event Entry Form and email events@ukultimate.com seperately to express your interest. We may be able to confrim/decline your entry earlier than the UK deadline.  

Once the entry deadlines for both international and UK teams have passed, there is no guarantee that any teams will be awarded a place. 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 and any teams entering less than two weeks before any of the Tour Series tournaments may be fined an additional £50 by UKU.

 

We hope to be able to accommodate all teams at this tournament, however, if the tournament is oversubscribed at the time of the deadline, 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.

The payment deadline for ALL teams is Friday 13th April

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.

For 2018 we are working in partnership with Visit Notts to make this tournament even better for you. They will be providing discounted hotel options in the city centre, as well as deals at local restaurants and attractions should you wish to go into town on the Friday or Saturday evening to play a bit of crazy golf or to keep the competitive team spirit going through a game of bowling! With the city centre only 10 minutes away, why not make a weekend of it?

 

All of the great deals can be found here: http://events.experiencenottinghamshire.com/nottingham-windfarm-ultimate-frisbee/

University Men's and Women's Outdoor Nationals 2018, along with the Alumni Cup, will be held at the Riverside Sports Complex, University of Nottingham, on the weekend of 21st/22nd April.

The venue doesn’t have its own postcode, but NG7 2SA will get you onto the right entry road. Follow it all the way to the end, even though it looks like it doesn't go anywhere much.

 

Entries will open on Tuesday 6th March and will close on Thursday 22nd March 2018 for the WOMEN'S division and the ALUMNI CUP. Entries for the MEN'S division will be from Tuesday 27th March-Thursday 5th April. Make sure that you enter before the deadline because teams have missed out on a tournament they qualified for due to not getting an entry in on time - BUCS are extremely strict on this. Don't forget!


 

This year we will once again host an amazing six divisions:

 

Men's UKU/BUCS Championships (a.k.a Division 1, 16 teams)

Men's UKU/BUCS Trophy (a.k.a Division 2, 14 teams)

Men's UKU/BUCS Conference Cup Finals (a.k.a. Division 3, 10 teams)

 

Women's UKU/BUCS Championships (a.k.a. Division 1, 16 teams)

Women's UKU Division 2 (No BUCS points available, but still a BUCS event - number of teams TBC)

 

The Alumni Cup (Space for up to 16 teams).

 


 

For the Men's teams, qualification was through the leagues (for those in 1A) or through the Conference Cup (for those in lower divisions). Hopefully you should know which division you qualified for - top 3 to Championships, next 3 to Trophy, and the Conference Cup finalists obviously go through to that division.

The one exception is that the best 4th placed team in the leagues goes to the Championships on points difference over the other 4th place finishers. This team should enter the Championships on BUCSscore.

ALL TEAMS DO NEED TO ENTER through BUCSscore, even though your fees are covered by your league fees. You don't need to pay - the cost is set to zero on the entry form - but you do need to enter. You athletic union staff will have to do this - you CANNOT enter yourselves. Go see them ASAP.

If - and only if - all the Uni staff are on holiday until after the closing date (technically possible I guess at this time of year) then we will talk to BUCS and make sure you are not disadvantaged, but you MUST email UKU on the contact email below to let us know about any issues IN ADVANCE.

All players will of course require full membership of the UKU for the finals.

Entries are open from Tuesday 27th March - Thursday 5th April. 


 

For the Women's teams, please enter through BUCSscore. Your athletic union staff will have to do this for you - you CANNOT enter yourselves. Go see them ASAP. The cost will be £155 as usual, and entries will close on the 22nd March.

If - and only if - all the Uni staff are on holiday until after the closing date (technically possible I guess at this time of year) then we will talk to BUCS and make sure you are not disadvantaged, but you MUST email UKU on the contact email below to let us know about any issues IN ADVANCE. 

 

Following the cancellation of all UWOR events, all Women’s teams are invited to the Nationals event, and the Regional and Nationals competitions will now be combined by creating a regional qualification competition which will take place on the Saturday morning. This will then determine which teams proceed to play in the Division 1 (BUCS) Finals and those that finish the weekend competing in Division 2. The full announcement and details of what's happening can be found here.

 

All players will of course require full membership of the UKU for the finals.

 


 

The Alumni Cup

Have you ever argued that your university team of 2010 was better than the 2005 team? Have you always wanted a re-match of a previous Student Nationals final? Well now is your chance! Gather together your mates and enter a team into the Alumni Cup.

Alumni cup will be an open division - obviously that means genuinely Open and not Men's; mixed teams are possible. To be eligible for an alumni team the player must have attended the institution for at least one year, on a more-than-half-time basis. The player does not need to have graduated from that institution - i.e. it's quite possible for current teams/players who didn't qualify for nationals to come along and play in the Alumni Cup. Universities may enter more than one team. All players must have basic UKU membership as a minimum - we will check some rosters at random on the day.

There is no qualification for this division. Teams must enter using the UKU Event Entry Form. Entries will be accepted on a first-pay, first served basis and are not confirmed until payment has been received. The initial deadline for entries is Thursday 22nd March.

If you drop out before 22nd March you will of course be refunded, but after that date you should not expect to get your money back. Late dropouts are a pain for everyone - please ensure you do have a full team before entering. Alumni teams are by their very nature a bit disparate and hard to herd, so please be really sure you do have enough committed players!

Similarly, there is a small chance that the division does not get enough teams to go ahead. There will of course be refunds if that's the case, but do perhaps be a little wary of booking unrefundable accommodation etc. If team numbers are very low, we will ask the teams involved whether they would still like to go ahead with the tournament - we don't mind if you want to play with only 4 teams, but equally we are aware that some teams might not be tempted if the division is very small. We should stress though that we do expect the division to run, as it has every other year but we want you to be prepared should the situation arise.

Accomodation and transport: 

We do not intend to provide accommodation. We very rarely do for BUCS events, as your Uni should be supporting you. We do understand that some teams will not get that support, so you should contact us and we will put you in touch with the local team who MAY be able to help - but no guarantees.

Games will start at approximately 10am on Saturday and finish at about 5pm on Sunday.

 

Entry for this tournament will open on Monday 22nd January until Monday 5th February for both divisions and will cost £135. Teams are required to enter using the UKU Event Entry Form.

 

For the Open division, only teams that qualified through the Club Open Indoor Regional tournaments are eligible to enter (the list of whom can be found here), however, for the Women’s division there are 16 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.

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, 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.com and we will be able to confirm whether or not you have been awarded a space.

 

Although please note, the payment deadline for ALL teams is also Monday 5th February.

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 (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.
