Event date: 
5 Sep 2020 - 10:00 - 6 Sep 2020 - 17:00
Event details: 
London Fives returns* on the 5th/6th September Iron Five arrive at the fantastic Hackney Marshes Centre in East London for the expanded Open and Women's outdoors 5-a-side competition.
*Obviously whether this event will proceed is highly dependent on the progression of the pandemic and the government's and UKU's advice about when sport can resume. Sign up will only open when there is certainty about whether these can go ahead.
What's going on
- 5-a-side Iron Man competition (no subs!)
- Indoors rules, pitches and game length, but outdoors (indoor weather is not guaranteed...)
- Open and women's divisions (if we have sufficient numbers)
- Total 48 teams (with capacity for more in needed)
- Saturday night party (though I suspect this will be extremely limited due to corona virus restrictions)
For anyone new, or in need of a recap, Iron Five is an 5-a-side Iron Man competition. That means no more than 5 people per team. Playing every point. You are allowed to bring/borrow a 6th player in the case of injuries.
Matches follow indoors rules, size and timings. Only this time we're outdoors with wind (because getting a big enough sports hall in london is basically impossible...).
We are provisionally looking at hosting 48 teams, though we have space to stretch to more if need be. It is our aim to hold a Women's division alongside men's depending on numbers.
Our new location is the brilliant Hackney Marshes Centre, located next to the Olympic Village in East London. Full transport links will be provided soon.

UKU Junior (U20) Outdoor Nationals & Schools National Championships 2019-20 - CANCELLED

Submitted by megprice on Tue, 11/02/2020 - 5:24pm
Event date: 
4 Jul 2020 (All day)
Event details: 

We are pleased to announce that UKU Junior (U20) Outdoor Nationals & Schools National Championships 2019-20 will be a one day event held at The Pavilion, Moor Lane, Birmingham on Saturday 4th July 2020.



In light of the developing COVID-19 situation, this event is now cancelled. Further information on the details of this, as well as future events, can be found on the UKU website homepage: https://www.ukultimate.com/  Please also keep an eye out on the UKU Event Announcement Newsletter for event-specific updates. 



Junior Nationals is played 7-a-side (full-size pitches)

UKU Schools National Championship Finals is played 5-a-side (reduced size pitches)


All events are Open divisions (i.e. no restrictions on gender) - there's nothing to prevent either an all-male or all-female team, or anywhere in between. A large percentage of teams will be mixed gender, so bring whatever mix of players you like!


We are of course aware that it can be tricky to organise logistics for something like this, but we'd love to have as many of you there as possible, so do please get in touch on the email below with any questions at all and we'll do what we can to help you make it happen.


Entry is through GoMembership, from TUESDAY 3rd MARCH until THURSDAY 7th MAY. Click HERE to be taken to the Events & Courses section where you will find the event to sign up.



Player Eligibility: Born on or after 1st Jan 2001

Membership/Affiliation requirements:

Players playing for UKU-affiliated schools playing as school teams are not required to have membership.

All other players must have minimum Basic Membership of UK Ultimate.

Team sizes and planning:

Clubs must ensure that they have appropriate levels of adult supervision in place for the event.

Based on past experience please note that you should not enter a team unless you have at least 10 fit players able to travel.

We also strongly recommend that teams plan to have a non-playing adult travelling with the team. There have been instances where small teams have had an injury, and a second player has had to accompany the injured player to hospital, leaving behind a team that is too small to continue. This not only spoils the tournament for the team concerned, but also for their opposition who have travelled and paid to play games, only to find they have a walkover - not ideal for anyone.

Need a team?
If you are a player or a small group of players without enough for a full team, then it may be possible to arrange for you to join up with another team; everyone involved in Junior Ultimate wants you there. HOWEVER you must explain your situation by emailing admin[at]ukultimate.com and have UKU ratify which is the most appropriate team for you to join with. Where possible, players are linked up with players from a similar geographical area.


Clubs/schools are welcome to enter more than one team, but in the event that the tournament becomes oversubscribed, clubs entering multiple additional teams may find lower ranked teams placed on a waiting list.



Player Eligibility: We expect to run 2 divisions.

For the Y11 Division, all players must be in Year 11 or lower.

For the Y8 Division, all players must be in Year 8 or lower.


Team Eligibility:

All teams must be strictly school teams.  In the future we expect all teams will have to qualify through local qualification events.  For the time being, all school teams that wish to enter will be considered eligible.

Given that we are still not at the stage of having numerous regional qualifiers, for now we WILL accept multiple entries from one school (only if there is room of course - priority always given to 1st teams). This should NOT be taken to mean that this will always be possible in the future, but for now we see no benefit in turning teams away.

Membership/Affiliation requirements:

Players do not need individual membership provided the school is UKU-affiliated. Please contact admin[at]ukultimate.com for more information on Schools Affiliation.

Team sizes and planning:

RULES: Please remember this is a 5-a-side competition played to the “UKU-Schools” adapted rules with smaller playing area, and relatively short games.  Exact game-lengths and tournament format will depend on the number of teams that enter.
