Calling all injured players!

It's time for our annual request for volunteers to help run our larger events. Are you injured, or retired, or being forced to drive people somewhere and watch?


We'd like to know if any non-players will be attending some of the big tournaments this year and would be able to help us by carrying a radio and hooter.

New UKU board members

Further to the board election held in January we are pleased to announce that Willis Bruckermann joins the UK Ultimate board this month.  In addition to the election, Nick Smith has been appointed to the board for a two-year term to support our work to increase the recognition of Ultimate both within the UK sports industry and with potential commercial partners.  Huge thanks also to Ali Smith for her continuing work on the GB Oversight Committee.

Berry Construction sponsor London Summer League

We’re happy to report that Berry Construction will be sponsoring the UKU London Summer League again in 2015.  Dan Berry – who’s first experience of Ultimate was a London Summer League pickup team in 2004 – is promising to bring a works-team to the league this year.  “We sponsored the league last year, and we were keen to do so again in 2015.  We’ve even created a new ultimate-friendly landing page on our website: http://berryconstructionuk.com/ultimate-frisbee/ as we’ve collected quite a few testimonials from ultimate players over the last couple of years."

If you are interested in promoting your business within the Ultimate community by sponsoring an event, league, team or project that is run by UK Ultimate then please let us know.
