Event details: 

London Calling is the opening round of the UKU Tour for the Open and Women's divisions.  We also welcome the best Open and Women's teams from outside the UK to this event.

In 2012, we moved to the fantastic fields at UCL Sports Ground at Shenley nr St Albans on the outskirts of London. The venue has space for 26 or more great fields, and is conveniently located for all of the London airports (Luton is closest).

Please see below for the Info Pack and pitch map. The schedule is also now there (v1.1). [If by some chance you got hold of v1.0 for the brief period that was visible on this page please ignore it!]

You can also access the live schedule page on

 - this version will be updated throughout the weekend as results come in.

NOTE: You will not be provided with a paper copy of these documents on the day - if you require paper copies please bring them; there will of course be large up-to-date versions to look at at the tournament desk.

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

The closing date (and payment date) for this event will be 28 days in advance - Friday 2nd May 2014. After this date, places will be awarded. Places may still be available later on a first-come first-served basis if the tournament is under-subscribed, but no team - no matter how strong - would be guaranteed entry.

For international teams, the closing date will be two weeks earlier - Friday 18th April 2014.
