UKU Uni Womens Indoors gains BUCS recognition

UK Ultimate is pleased to announce that University Women's Indoor Nationals will be a BUCS-sanctioned event from 2014 onwards.  This is primarily a result of the growth we have seen in this competition over recent years and so congratulations and thanks to all those people that have helped to set up, build and support the Uni Women's teams.  We are hopeful that this will help more University Women's Ultimate teams to benefit from support from their Universities - which tends to come in the form of access to training facilities and/or support for entry fees and travel costs at BUCS competitions.
