UKU University Indoor National Finals (Div 1)

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

SCHEDULE AND PLAYER INFO NOW AVAILABLE

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

This year's Open Div 1 Uni Finals will again return to the Alan Higgs centre in Coventry.  The large hall has two courts, and a "3G rubber crumb" surface.

It is a great surface for playing Ultimate on, but please note the following advice about footwear on the rubber crumb carpet at Alan Higgs:

Football boots with moulded studs, or astroturf boots are best.  The venue also recommend that people can wear trainers - and whilst this is OK - its probably not ideal for Ultimate on this surface.
Do NOT wear blades or long – especially screw-in – studs.  There is a danger with either type of doing damage to YOU and/or the carpet.

It is worth mentioning that when the weather outside is very cold, it can get cold in the sports hall - it is a big barn with no heating!  Bring warm clothes!  Really.

DIRECTIONS

There is a good map available on this page: http://www.covsf.com/contact-us.php

The centre is easy to spot when you drive along Allard Way - but beware that some satnavs seem to take you somewhere else if you just use the postcode!

Here is an annotated googlemap with the venue, a nearby supermarket, and the hotels listed below.

 

ACCOMMODATION

There are a number of the usual low-cost hotels in the area:

Formule1 Coventry City (£22/room for 3 sharing).  This is in the city centre.

Premier Inn, Binley (about 2.5 miles from the venue).

Hotel Ibis Coventry South (walking distance from venue).

With BUCS points on offer, experience shows that many teams will get reasonable support from their AU on costs.  If you are really desperate for help on this, please get indicate on the entry form.

Hi Everyone,

The Northern University Open Indoor Regional tournament will be hosted at the Leasowe Recreation Centre on the Wirral.
This bid was put together last minuet by the UKU in the absence of a suitable, on-time bid form elsewhere.

Team Name:
University:
Team Contact:
Email:
Mobile Number:
How many teams (including the "first team") would you be interested in sending:
How many players on each team:
Do you need accommodation on Friday night:
Do you need accommodation on Saturday night:
Do you need a late start Saturday:
Due to the last minuet nature of this bid, this venue only has two pitches. Priority will be given to first teams from every University in the north. Followed by the second teams of the well established and/or reliable university clubs. If it makes a significant difference for your club having a second team in attendance, then please do mention that.
Payment information, including the price of the tournament (which will more than likely match the price of the other regional events), will be released shortly to the team contacts.
Deadline for entry (sending of the above information) is Thursday the 13th Oct - so act fast.
