The venue doesn’t have its own postcode, but NG7 2SA will get you onto the right entry road. Follow it all the way to the end, even though it looks like it doesn't go anywhere much.

 

Entries will open on Tuesday 6th March and will close on Thursday 22nd March 2018 for the WOMEN'S division and the ALUMNI CUP. Entries for the MEN'S division will be from Tuesday 27th March-Thursday 5th April. Make sure that you enter before the deadline because teams have missed out on a tournament they qualified for due to not getting an entry in on time - BUCS are extremely strict on this. Don't forget!


 

This year we will once again host an amazing six divisions:

 

Men's UKU/BUCS Championships (a.k.a Division 1, 16 teams)

Men's UKU/BUCS Trophy (a.k.a Division 2, 14 teams)

Men's UKU/BUCS Conference Cup Finals (a.k.a. Division 3, 10 teams)

 

Women's UKU/BUCS Championships (a.k.a. Division 1, 16 teams)

Women's UKU Division 2 (No BUCS points available, but still a BUCS event - number of teams TBC)

 

The Alumni Cup (Space for up to 16 teams).

 


 

For the Men's teams, qualification was through the leagues (for those in 1A) or through the Conference Cup (for those in lower divisions). Hopefully you should know which division you qualified for - top 3 to Championships, next 3 to Trophy, and the Conference Cup finalists obviously go through to that division.

The one exception is that the best 4th placed team in the leagues goes to the Championships on points difference over the other 4th place finishers. This team should enter the Championships on BUCSscore.

ALL TEAMS DO NEED TO ENTER through BUCSscore, even though your fees are covered by your league fees. You don't need to pay - the cost is set to zero on the entry form - but you do need to enter. You athletic union staff will have to do this - you CANNOT enter yourselves. Go see them ASAP.

If - and only if - all the Uni staff are on holiday until after the closing date (technically possible I guess at this time of year) then we will talk to BUCS and make sure you are not disadvantaged, but you MUST email UKU on the contact email below to let us know about any issues IN ADVANCE.

All players will of course require full membership of the UKU for the finals.

Entries are open from Tuesday 27th March - Thursday 5th April. 


 

For the Women's teams, please enter through BUCSscore. Your athletic union staff will have to do this for you - you CANNOT enter yourselves. Go see them ASAP. The cost will be £155 as usual, and entries will close on the 22nd March.

If - and only if - all the Uni staff are on holiday until after the closing date (technically possible I guess at this time of year) then we will talk to BUCS and make sure you are not disadvantaged, but you MUST email UKU on the contact email below to let us know about any issues IN ADVANCE. 

 

Following the cancellation of all UWOR events, all Women’s teams are invited to the Nationals event, and the Regional and Nationals competitions will now be combined by creating a regional qualification competition which will take place on the Saturday morning. This will then determine which teams proceed to play in the Division 1 (BUCS) Finals and those that finish the weekend competing in Division 2. The full announcement and details of what's happening can be found here.

 

All players will of course require full membership of the UKU for the finals.

 


 

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.

Alumni cup will be an open division - obviously that means genuinely Open and not Men's; mixed teams are possible. To be eligible for an alumni team the player must have attended the institution for at least one year, on a more-than-half-time basis. The player does not need to have graduated from that institution - i.e. it's quite possible for current teams/players who didn't qualify for nationals to come along and play in the Alumni Cup. Universities may enter more than one team. All players must have basic UKU membership as a minimum - we will check some rosters at random on the day.

There is no qualification for this division. Teams must enter using the UKU Event Entry Form. Entries will be accepted on a first-pay, first served basis and are not confirmed until payment has been received. The initial deadline for entries is Thursday 22nd March.

If you drop out before 22nd March you will of course be refunded, but after that date you should not expect to get your money back. Late dropouts are a pain for everyone - please ensure you do have a full team before entering. Alumni teams are by their very nature a bit disparate and hard to herd, so please be really sure you do have enough committed players!

Similarly, there is a small chance that the division does not get enough teams to go ahead. There will of course be refunds if that's the case, but do perhaps be a little wary of booking unrefundable accommodation etc. If team numbers are very low, we will ask the teams involved whether they would still like to go ahead with the tournament - we don't mind if you want to play with only 4 teams, but equally we are aware that some teams might not be tempted if the division is very small. We should stress though that we do expect the division to run, as it has every other year but we want you to be prepared should the situation arise.

Event details: 

UXON will be held on this date in 2018 at Salford Sports Village!

For another year running, the tournament will be using the format of the Swiss Draw! This will enable us to run the event without the need of any qualifier/regional tournaments and it means that we can fit a large number of teams (hopefully everyone!) at the one venue.

UXON IMPORTANT URGENT ANNOUNCEMENT


The forecast for this weekend in Salford has got much worse over the last few hours. It seems quite possible that we will not be able finish the tournament - although who knows what the weather will actually do. It certainly seems likely to be unpleasant even if we can play out the competition. We appreciate that many of you will already be on your way, but we have taken the decision to offer a FULL REFUND to any teams that want and decide to drop out now BEFORE MIDNIGHT tonight. We CANNOT cover any travel or accommodation losses.


YOU MUST CONFIRM BY PHONE - Si 07802 311298 or Meg 07984 563597.

***PITCH MAP***


WATER: We WILL NOT be providing team water bottles. 

 Water will be available from the main building but it’s a bit of a walk away from the pitches so make sure that you bring more than one water bottle and that you fill them up before your game! Especially if you have a back-to-back!!

 

FORMAT:
55 minute games.  Cap of 13 points. Half at 7.
1 timeout per team, per half. 
When time is up, finish the point then reduce points cap to current highest score +1.  
The HARD CAP is when the hooter signalling the start of the next game goes and you are to finish the possession. Draws can occur.

There are no pools, or knockout rounds. As the tournament goes on, you play against teams whose performance is closer and closer to your own. On saturday, teams will be divided into 2 equal groups of 16 (A and B). Each group of 16 will play in alternate game spots i.e. odd seeds will play in gameslots 1, 3 and 5. 

After Saturday the top 16 teams and bottom 16 teams will be reshuffled into new groups to give you further opportunity to play teams of your standard.
 
Game rounds cannot be generated until all scores are in i.e. Round 3 cannot be generated until the scores of Round 1 are all in. DO NOT WALK AWAY FROM YOUR FIELD UNTIL YOU SCORE HAS BEEN COLLECTED.
 
Swiss draw takes into account not only the score of your game (down to how many points each team scores) but also how well you and your opposition have done so far. Winning by a margin of 3 will give you a better Swiss Draw score than if you win by 2. Beating a strong team by 3 is better than beating a weak team by 3.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

List of confirmed teams: https://www.ukultimate.com/newsletter_issue/uxon_201718_confirmed_teams


Entry for this tournament will open on Tuesday 23rd January until Thursday 22nd February and will cost £155. Teams are required to enter using the UKU Event Entry Form.

We understand that it's not always easy to get payment sorted through your uni, so you do not need to pay by that date to secure your spot - but if you are signed up as of that date, and are offered a spot, you will be liable for the fees if you subsequently pull out. Don't enter a team just on the off chance you might take up the spot!

 

However, with such a high number of teams entering, we will not be able to guarantee accommodation for ANY teams. As you can imagine, having around 40 teams at the event with about 12-15 people per team, that's a lot of people to cater for, so we ask that you seriously consider whether you'd be able to attend the tournament if you are required to find your own accommodation for the weekend.

We MAY be able to provide some teams with a place to say for the night, in the form of a scout hut/church hall, but we urge teams to not rely on this possibility. If you have an option to stay in accommodation within 1 hour of the venue, the we strongly suggest that you confirm that as soon as you can rather than waiting on us to say whether something is or isn't available.

In previous years where we've held the tournament at this venue we have had to send teams to scout huts in Liverpool, so we do not exagerate when we say that we are limited with the accommodation options that we can organise for you. Although, if you are seriously stuck and have no other options, for whatever reason, then please state that you REALLY REALLY need accommdation on the UKU Event Entry Form and include details in the 'Other Information' section and we will try our best but, just to reiterate, we cannot guarantee accommodation for any teams at this moment in time.

Also, the other thing to bear in mind is that if any accommodation space is found, the other aspect that will be considered will be distance from the venue. Teams will be allocated space dependent on how far away their University is from the venue/how long their journey is in conjunction with whether they've stated they're depserate for a place to stay. Therefore, if your University is within 2-3 hours of the venue then please do not get your hopes up that accommodation space will be offered to you.

 

But what if the tournament is oversubscribed?

We hope to accommodate everyone at this tournament, but should the tournament be oversubscribed at the closing date, the following rules (using the UKU/BUCS indoor rules as a basis) will apply:

 

UKU/BUCS Entry Rules

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

·         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 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.
    • 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.

Open warm-up tournament?: No

Entries open: 30th January

Entry deadline: 15th February

 

Entries for the Women's Regionals tournaments will be open through BUCSscore for each of the events as stated above - you CANNOT enter through UKU. You must get the staff at your Athletic Union to enter through the official BUCS site. Make sure that you enter on time and that you're entered into the correct region. 

For any open teams that wish to play at the Open Warm-up tournament in the Women's regions, please complete the UKU Event Entry Form here: https://www.ukultimate.com/webform/event_entry_form. The same entry open and closing dates for the Women's Outdoor Regionals competitions apply to the respective Men's Warm Up tournaments. More details below.


All Women's teams must enter in order to qualify for BUCS Nationals. We expect to run both a Division 1 and a Division 2 at Nationals, so the large majority of teams should be able to attend, but you must attend regionals in order to be eligible for Nationals. Regionals is a required part of the BUCS season, and teams must qualify through it for the National event in April.

 

If the tournament is oversubscribed the entry procedures will be as described below (UKU/BUCS Entry Rules).

 

OPEN WARM-UP TOURNAMENTS

In Scotland, we will also be running the SSS University Open Outdoor Championships alongside the BUCS Women's event. This will not have any impact on BUCS qualification for the boys, but will of course have some nice shiny SSS medals up for grabs as per usual. Teams wishing to enter this event should enter through the UKU Entry Form. It's impossible to say how many teams we can accommodate until we see the Women's entry numbers - we'll confirm after that closing date, and it will be first come first served among all the first teams, then all the second teams, and so on, but make sure you get your entry in if you wish to be considered for a place. Please note: If you are signed up for the SSS Open event as of that closing date (1st Feb) you will be expected to come if offered a place, and will be charged if you pull out. Don't sign up unless you are sure you can come.

 

Similarly, for any of the other University Men's Warm Up tournaments, we cannot guarantee your place until ALL of the women's entries have been received and confirmed. The number of places available in the warm up tournament will depend on how many women's teams enter, but should you complete the UKU Entry Form for the tournament and be offered a space, you WILL be liable to pay the full team fee. You will be informed of whether you have been offered a place once the closing date for that Regional tournament has passed.

 

If you have any questions, please email events@ukultimate.com

 

UKU/BUCS Entry Rules

BUCS Regionals 

The closing date and payment date will be as announced by BUCS. If places remain open after that date, they MAY be filled on a first-pay first-play basis. UKU/BUCS reserve the right to refuse a late entry if it will compromise the tournament for others – for example by adversely affecting the schedule – and to place the team on a waiting list instead.

 

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.

 

Which region are we in?

Please note that your region is not necessarily related to where your Men's team plays in the outdoor leagues. We have 7 indoor regions (combined into 4 larger regions for Women's Indoors and Outdoors), which do not tally with the 5 outdoor Men's regions. Check carefully!

This list should now contain all the Unis - if your team is missing please do let us know and we'll update it!

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.

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

 

Entry for these tournaments open on Tuesday 31st October for 2 weeks only and teams can enter using the UKU Event Entry Form. The closing date is Tuesday 14th NovemberIf you are entered as of that date, you WILL BE LIABLE for the fees, even if you drop out afterwards. 

You do not need to pay upfront to secure your spot if that is difficult for you - there are often delays going through university processes, and we understand this. But as mentioned, you WILL be liable if you initially sign up and then drop out after the closing date. 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: 

Mixed (Div 1 + Div 2) (change versus last year)

Scotland & Northern Ireland: 4+2 
North East & North West: 2+3
Yorkshire & East Midlands: 5+2
East & London 2+2
South East 2+2 (lost 1 div 2 spot)
South West: 2+3 (gained one div 2 spot)
West Midlands & Wales: 3+2 

***************
The confirmed list of teams that have qualified for both Division 1 and Division 2 following UXIR can be found here: http://ukultimate.com/newsletter_issue/university_mixed_indoor_regionals_201718_results_and_qualifiers_national

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

If you DO NOT want to take up your qualifying spot from UXIR then you must let us know straight away following the tournament, otherwise you may be liable to pay a fine if you leave it too late. As the entries open the Tuesday after the weekend of UXIR please consider the chances of you playing at UXIN over the weekend of regionals if you anticipate you have a chance of qualifying. We understand that there is not long to decide, however, there is a very short space of time before the National competition and we need to have enough time to find a replacement team if you do not wish to play. 

 


 

 

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.

Accomodation and transport: 

We do not intend to provide accommodation for this Nationals event. There are a number of relatively local universities who may be able to help you out if you ask them nicely - Warwick, Birmingham, Coventry etc. - but UKU is not centrally organising anything. There are a great many cheapish travelodges and similar options in this part of the country.
