UKU Mixed Tour 2 - Closing date approaching #ukumt2

Entries close this Friday night for UKU Mixed Tour 2. Full details of entry procedures can be found on the event page, but the important thing to note is that the closing date is THIS FRIDAY and you need to both enter AND PAY by then to be considered for a spot.

On-site Accommodation at UKU Mixed Tour 2 #ukumt2

Details are now available for how to book a sleeping space in the sports hall on site at Mixed Tour 2. Spaces are limited, and we expect this budget option to be pretty popular with some of our players, so be aware it's first come first served and get asking your team who needs to sleep there!

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.

Mixed Tour 1 - Schedule confirmed

The schedule for this weekend's UKU Mixed Tour 1 is now available from the event page.

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: 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.

National School Sports Week

UK Ultimate is always looking for opportunities to encourage schools to play Ultimate, and we have a small group of volunteers in London looking for some help with an idea we want to try.
