University Men’s & Women’s Nationals 2020 - Cancelled

As the COVID-19 situation continues to develop, unfortunately University Men’s & Women’s Outdoor Nationals 2020 (4th-5th April) is now cancelled. 

 

Update Statement re Coronavirus (COVID-19) 17th March 2020

On March 16th, the government announced that everyone should stop all non-essential travel and social contact.  Obviously we all love playing Ultimate very much, but we cannot see any situation where playing Ultimate is essential.

For that reason, unless and until there is a change or relevant clarification in official guidance, UK Ultimate’s position is that all Ultimate in the UK should now stop until further notice.    

So, further to our announcement yesterday 

  • All Ultimate clubs should stop club training sessions
  • All GB training is cancelled
  • The UKU Level 1 Coaching Course on 21st March is cancelled

We will continue to provide updates about the events due to take place this year as soon as we can, and still on an event-by-event basis for now.  We do not know when the guidance will change; we do not have any more information that you do. Keep an eye out on the UKU Events Announcements Newsletter regarding each event’s individual status.
