We are pleased to announce that we have secured a fantastic new (to ultimate) venue to host this year's BUCS UKU University Outdoor Nationals, the University of Manchester Sports Ground. It is a substantial site and as a result will be big enough to host four divisions; the University Open Divisions A & B, the University Women's Division and a brand new division for 2012, 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. This is going to become an annual event so not only will we be able to crown the open and womens' university champions but we will also be able to crown the best university team ever...


This will be an open division. To be eligible for an alumni team the player must have attended the institution for at least one year. The player does not need to have graduated from that institution. Universities may enter more than one team.

Accomodation and transport: 

 


Accommodation 


As in previous years teams will be expected, where at all possible, to organise their own accommodation. There are currently some good deals at around £30 per room but Manchester United are at home on the Saturday so it will fill up very fast. The postcode for the actual venue does not work correctly so please use M23 0DT for an approximate location. Below are a number of websites that may be useful:


 


http://www.visitmanchester.com/stay (use Manchester Airport for searches)


http://www.travelodge.co.uk (use Manchester Airport for searches)


http://www.premierinn.com/en/ (use M23 0DT for searches)


http://www.britanniahotels.com/ (use Manchester for searches)

  3. At the traffic lights at the bottom of the slip road turn right onto the B5167

  4. Follow the final directions below...

From the M56 (South):



  1. Leave the M56 at Junction 3A onto the A5103 signposted Manchester.

  2. Take the second exit off the A5103 signposted B5166 Sale Moor.

  6. Follow this down to the venue; the car park is on the right hand side.

  7. Please do not park on the road as you may end up with a parking ticket!

Some SatNavs and Google Maps suggest you can access the venue direct from the M60 if you use the venue postcode which obviously you can’t!! So I suggest you use the postcode M23 0DT which is for Willenhall Road, Wythenshawe, Manchester. Once you get there, follow directions 5-7 above.
