Safeguarding pilot for coaches

Calling all Ultimate coaches, non-playing university coaches, anyone considering future GB leadership, those taking their UKU L2 Coaching Award (plus anyone else interested!)

Safeguarding does not stop when players reach 18, we have a responsibility towards all of those we coach. In partnership with ACT (Ann Craft Trust) UKU is running a pilot adult safeguarding course on the morning of 23rd June 2018. After the pilot we'll be working with ACT to refine a bespoke safeguarding course for UK Ultimate coaches.

As a pilot, this will be free to attend. Moving forward it will be a requirement for anyone involved in GB leadership in all divisions to take this course and as such there will be other opportunities over the Autumn / Winter of 2018.

If you are interested in attending on 23rd June please email


You may be aware that an update to the UK Ultimate website and membership system is underway, and we are moving the data management and payment processing aspects of the website to a new commercial NGB membership management system called GoMembership.  

Please do not create a new account if you already had one on the old system.  Your details have been migrated.

UKU Board Appointments

We are pleased to announce the appointment of five UKU board members.  In addition to the three board members appointed following the elections held in March (see below), today we are also announcing the appointments of Fowzia Mahmood and Serena de Nahlik.

OWT2 - B-Tour North Weather Update

Following the delay of play earlier today due to the weather, some adjustments have been made to the schedule for the remainder of the tournament.


Please see the updated schedule here:

UKU Masters Nationals at Glastonbury Tor-Nament 2018

Registration for UKU Masters Nationals and Glastonbury is now open! For the first time ever the annual Glastonbury event will be incorporating UK Masters into the weekend tournament.

The event will be held at Tor Leisure Centre on 22nd-23rd September 2018 with the Glastonbury party starting on Friday from 5pm onwards.


Based on the level of interest expressed so far, Masters Nationals will be run alongside the other pool games on the Saturday, with the Open Masters final as the Saturday evening show game. Masters teams will then feed into the rest of the tournament for Sunday’s play, or just play Masters and chill on Sunday if they so choose. We will also aim to accommodate Women, Mixed and Grandmasters as required.

OWT2 Cardiff - CONFIRMED Schedule

Since the publication of the second draft schedule for OWT2 Cardiff, no changes have been made. Therefore we are happy to now CONFIRM the OWT2 Cardiff schedule for this weekend!


OWT2 Cardiff - NEW DRAFT Schedule

Since the publication of the first, draft schedule this morning for OWT2 in Cardiff, a team dropped out of the Women's division. This has meant that several changes needed to be made to the schedule. So, no matter which division you are playing in, please ensure that you double check both your seed and when your first game is as it is likely that they may have changed.


Although, as mentioned previously, please DO NOT make any concrete plans based on this schedule as it might change (again). However, we hope to be able to confirm it in the morning. 

The second DRAFT schedule can be found here:


OWT2 Cardiff - DRAFT Schedule Update

We have just been informed that another team needs to drop out of the event in Cardiff. This means that the schedule will need to be amended so please bear with us while we try to get this done as quickly as possible. 


Once the changes have been made and the schedule re-checked, we will announce the second draft.
