European Championship Review

Congratulations to the GB Mixed and Open teams who both won Gold at the recent European Ultimate Championships (EUC) in Gyor, Hungary. Both teams retained their 2015 titles in closely fought games, with the Mixed team beating France 13-12 and the Open team winning a hotly anticipated game against Germany 15-14. Both teams were unbeaten throughout the tournament, with the Mixed team ending EUC with a points difference of +90 and Open finishing with a points difference of +85*. 

The GB Womens’ team finished the tournament in 11th place. Although a lower placing than previous European Championships (5th place in 2015), the women had several notable results throughout the week including a 13-14 loss to eventual silver medallists Switzerland and 13-15 loss to subsequent semi-finalists Italy. Credit should also be given to the GB Womens’ team for a valiant fight back from 2-8 down to 11-13 in an exciting pre-quarter game against France. Results across the Womens’ division show growing strength and depth in this division; a promising outlook for women’s ultimate in Europe.

Expanding GB support team

Further to our previous announcement we are really delighted to welcome three new people to the growing team of people that support our GB squads - please see below.  Sadly nobody so far applied for the GB Finance Officer role.  If you have some experience of accounting/bookkeeping - or maybe just love spreadsheets as well as Ultimate - please take a look and get in touch if you’d like to help.  

Georgina Morrison is joining the GB Committee as Welfare Officer.  Geegee has been involved with several clubs over the last few years - Guildford, Horsham, Reading, as well as uni clubs at Surrey and Birmingham. She played with the GB u24 mixed team in Perth, and with Reading at WUCC 2018.  In applying for the role Geegee explained that she was really pleased to see this role being created, and volunteered her support because she views each individual players' physical and mental welfare as being of the utmost importance.

Lee Rhodes and Ashika CV kindly volunteered to pick up and share the Sport Science coordination work.  There is plenty to do. Lee has worked as a physiotherapist in sport for 20 years, including 6 years with a Premier League football club in addition to the rather more glamourous assignments at UKU tournaments and with several GB Ultimate teams.  Ash is doing a masters in Psychology of Sports and Exercise, and has been playing Ultimate with St Marys University for several years as well as some coaching in a local school.

Thanks in advance to all three of them.
