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)

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.

Submitted by Si Hill on Tue, 11/04/2017 - 11:59am
Event date: 
16 Sep 2017 (All day) - 17 Sep 2017 (All day)
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.

The live schedule can be accessed here: https://goo.gl/aDpT7r

 

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

Submitted by Si Hill on Tue, 11/04/2017 - 10:33am
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.
