Submitted by Michael Wakelyn... on Fri, 23/06/2017 - 2:55pm
Event date: 
4 Nov 2017 - 09:00 - 5 Nov 2017 - 14:00
Event details: 

Sublime (Portsmouth University) are hosting our annual indoor tournament, Sublime Warm-up, in November this year at Fareham Leisure centre.

The tournament will start at 9am on Saturday the 4th of November, finishing at 6pm for the day. Recommencing at 9am on the Sunday, 5th of November, finishing at 2pm.


Last year, for the first time, we introduced a women’s division which was a great success. We’ll be doing that again this year. We will have an Open and Women’s division, both welcome to beginners teams.


This tournament falls between University Mixed Indoor regionals, and the University Men’s and Women’s regionals. This event is the perfect occasion for Uni teams to get some team synergy, and vital practise before Men’s and Women’s regionals.


The cost per team, will be £130.


Accommodation will be provided in sublime player’s houses, for both the Friday and Saturday night, if required.


If you’d like to register an interest or sign up, please feel free to email UltimateFrisbee@upsu.net with your name, email you want used for mailing purposes, team name (can be changed), division, and whether you and your team would require accommodation for either the Friday, Saturday, or both. We’ll add you to our mail list, and keep you updated. We anticipate spaces going quickly, so if you're interested, please act quickly.

Cheers,
Michael Wakelyn-Green, President of the University of Portsmouth, Ultimate Frisbee Club.

UKU Club Open Indoor Regionals & Scottish Club Women's Indoor Nationals 2017/18

Submitted by megprice on Thu, 25/05/2017 - 2:53pm
Event date: 
20 Jan 2018 (All day) - 21 Jan 2018 (All day)
Event details: 

Club Open Indoor Regionals will be held at three venues on this date in Stoke-on-Trent, Weston-super-Mare, and Glasgow, with the event at Ravenscraig being a one day tournament. Obviously these form part of the same qualification tournament as the COIR event that occurred in December at the Cranford Superdome for Club Open Indoor Nationals, so you can't play at one of these events and also the previous one! If we find that this has happened then you will be disqualified from both tournaments. 


There will also be Scottish Club Women's Indoor Nationals being held alongside COIR in Glasgow as a one day event. Please note that this event is not a qualifier for Club Women's Indoor Nationals being held in Feb 2018.

Venues:

Hutton Moor Leisure Centre, Weston-super-Mare, BS22 8LY

- 2 pitches, hard court surface.

- Approx. 10am-6pm both days

4 Qualifiers for COIN

SCHEDULE: https://goo.gl/N2hab6

INFO PACK: https://goo.gl/x9RG3p 

 

Entries are open from Thursday 26th October and teams can enter through the UKU Entry Form, and will cost £135 (£85 for the one day events). The closing date is Thursday 23rd November. Please note that that date is a deadline for both entry AND payment - you must fill the form AND send the money to secure your spot. (As ever, late dropouts should not expect a full refund!)



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.


 
The exact number of qualifying spots for each event will be confirmed once the deadline for entry has passed. Club Open & Women's Indoor Nationals will be held at Cranford Superdome on the weekend of 17th-18th February 2018.

 

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

UKU Club Open Indoor Regionals 2017/18

Submitted by megprice on Thu, 25/05/2017 - 2:52pm
Event date: 
2 Dec 2017 (All day) - 3 Dec 2017 (All day)
Event details: 

Club Open Indoor Regionals 2017/18 for the SE/London area will be hosted on this date in the fantastic Cranford Superdome (TW5 9PD), a large indoor 3G facility which can host four good sized pitches. The event will run in the afternoons - approx 1-9pm Saturday, 1-6pm Sunday - due to football club bookings in the morning. There will be space for at least 24 teams. 

Three more regional events in Stoke-on-Trent, Weston-super-Mare, and Glasgow will take place in January. Obviously these form part of the same qualification tournament for Club Open Indoor Nationals so you can't play at this event in December and also at one of those! If we find that this has happened then you will be disqualified from both tournaments. 

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

 

PLEASE NOTE: This event may need to run later on the Sunday due to the high number of teams that have entered. The finishing time may be closer to 7.30pm.

Ravenscraig: UMWIN 2015/16 in progress at the enormous Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility

 

UKU/BUCS University Indoor Nationals for both Women and Men (Div 1 & 2) will all be held alongside each other in the fabulous and enormous Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility in Motherwell, near Glasgow (ML1 2TZ).

This document shows the most up to date information we have regarding the timings and locations for these events.


It's a full size indoor 3G football pitch, 105x68m, giving us space for 6 full size pitches of very good size. There's also a balcony and cafe, and even some bleacher seating next to the pitch.

We aim to be finished by approx 4pm at the very latest on Sunday (schedule will finish around 3pm, but games may overrun) to get you on the road again, which means that Saturday will be quite a long day overall (9am-9pm). But we'll aim to schedule it so that no particular team is there the whole day.

There WILL be some floor-space available with the local University players or in scout huts etc, but this will of course be limited to those whose university will not support accommodation at a BUCS tournament - hopefully a good number of you will get that support for this event! A google form will be opened closer to the time asking which teams require accommodation. 

 


Entries are open from Tuesday 28th November 2017, and must be made through BUCS, not through UKU. Your University staff will have to enter you, as only they have access to the BUCS system. Go and see your AU staff ASAP and get your entries in - late entries have no guarantee of being accepted, even if it's something that appears not to be your fault (like staff not being in the office when you try and enter 10 mins before the deadline...). Get it sorted! And don't forget to do it before you or your AU go home for Christmas!! Entries won't be open when you get back and you HAVE to get it done at University.

https://www.bucs.org.uk/page.asp?section=15836&sectionTitle=Indoor+Championships

The closing date is Thursday 14th December 2017.

 

 To be eligible to play you must have finished in one of the qualifying spots for your region; the number of bids per region is as outlined below: 


Women's (Div 1) (Change from last year)
Scotland - 5 (losing 1 spot)
North - 6 
East - 5 (gaining 1 spot)
West - 4 

 

Men's (Div 1 + Div 2) (Change from last year)
Scotland & Northern Ireland - 6 + 2 ( gaining 1 spot in Div 1)
North East & North West - 3 + 3 (gaining 1 spot in Div 2)
Yorkshire & East Midlands - 2 + 3 
East & London - 2 + 2 (losing 1 spot in Div 1)
South East - 3 + 2 (gaining spot in Div 1)
South West- 2 + 2
West Midlands & Wales - 2 + 2 (losing 1 spot in Div 1 and 1 spot in Div 2)

 

Please be aware that if you DO NOT take up your qualifying spot from UMIR or UWIR then BUCS may fine you.   




UKU/BUCS Indoors Entry Rules

BUCS Regionals (Open/Women - see additional rules for Mixed below)


The closing date and payment date will be as announced by BUCS (to your Uni) and on our UKU event pages. BUCS will NOT accept late entries - no exceptions. It may be possible for us to institute a second round of entries after the first deadline has passed if the tournaments are undersubscribed, but these will be charged (by BUCS) at 20% over the initial price - and we cannot in any way guarantee to make space for teams who have missed the BUCS deadlines. Don't mess this up!

 

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

·         First teams will get priority over second teams, and second over third etc.

·         If there is insufficient room for all first teams, places will be awarded in the following order:

o   First teams finishing in the top half of the previous year’s tournament

o   First teams who didn’t enter the previous year’s tournament

o   Remaining first teams in order of their finishing position last year

·         If there are spaces remaining after all first teams have been awarded a space, second teams will be offered places in an order based on finishing position last year, and then third teams and so on

o   Second teams with no finishing position from last year will have a lower priority than those who attended – but still above all third teams (and so on)

If the cut-off happens to fall between 2 or more teams with no finishing position from last year, a lottery will be run between those teams to determine entry.

BUCS Nationals

The closing date and payment date will be as announced by BUCS. Entry is guaranteed for all qualifying teams provided they meet this deadline.

Should any teams fail to take up their spots, the places will be filled by the next-ranked team from one of the qualifying tournaments, with priority among regions determined according to the following (in order):

1.       The region(s) not yet offered an extra place under this process which had the fewest qualification spots originally

2.       The region from which the team dropped out

3.       The strongest regions, i.e.

a.       for Division 1, the region with the highest-ranked relegated team last year – but note that rule 1 means we ignore teams from regions already awarded a dropout-spot.

b.      for Division 2, the region with the highest average finishing position in Division 2 the previous year

c.       for Women’s, the region with the highest average finishing position last year.

4.       A lottery between regions that cannot be separated by the above

Mixed

Rules will be the same as for BUCS tournaments, with the following additions:

Late entries may be accepted, providing that they improve the schedule for others. We will not allow late entries which make the numbers worse.

·         Single-institution teams at a given level (e.g. 1st, 2nd etc) will have priority entry at regionals over any teams at the same level who have players from more than one institution.

·         UKU reserve the right to move clubs to a blacklist if any of their teams default from any UKU University tournament at late notice.

o   Blacklisted 1st teams will only get into non-BUCS tournaments if there is space for all 1st teams; 2nd/3rd/4th teams from blacklisted clubs will only get a space if the tournament is undersubscribed – i.e. someone else’s 4th team will get in ahead of your 2nd team.
