ScCOIQ & ScCWIN - IMPORTANT UPDATE (Venue Cancellation)

Unfortunately, we have just received confirmation from Ravenscraig that they are no longer able to host our Club Open Indoor Qualifier & Scottish Club Women's Indoor Nationals event on 19th January due to a last minute agreement for the pitch to be relaid in the hall. As a result of the vast cost of the refurbishment and a very limited period in which the work can be done, regrettably there is no way for this to be avoided.

 

We are currently in the process of trying to find another venue that might be able to host the event, albeit on a different weekend, so please keep an eye out for an email from us with further details about the situation. If you no longer wish to attend the event, with the knowledge that it will no longer be in Ravenscraig and most likely not on 19th January, please email events@ukultimate.com ASAP and we will process a refund for you. 

 

We apologise for any inconvenience.
