GB Masters Womens Expression of Interest welcomed

We are delighted to have been successful in our bid to manage the GB Women's Masters.

GB Mixed applications welcome

It is a very great pleasure for the GB Mixed Management team to announce details of, and invite applications for, the Great Britain Mixed programme for 2015: please read on if you'd like to see GB Mixed succeed or have an interest in our plans.

GB Senior team appointments

UK Ultimate is pleased to announce the following bids have been successful to run the senior squads for the EUF European Ultimate Championships 2015 and the WFDF World Ultimate & Guts Championships 2016:

Open: Justin Foord, Marc Guilbert
Women’s: Jenna Thompson
Mixed: Rich Hims, Niamh Delaney, Magali Matsumiya, Steve Kolthammer, Sam Vile
Open Masters: Dave Grayson, Rob McGowan
Women’s Masters: Claerwen Snell, KJ Boardman-Hims

The GB Oversight Committee can foresee some concern amongst UKU members that the Open, Women's and Mixed bids may appear to be quite London-centric and/or closely linked to a club.  These concerns have been reviewed in detail during the application process.  We cannot emphasise enough that we require the managers to run truly Great Britain teams that are absolutely not just an extension of club teams. Players from across the country are encouraged to attend trials.  The committee will be remaining involved with all team managers in all divisions throughout the 2015/2016 campaign to ensure that there is no deviation from this premise.

GB U23 trial application forms

Players that are interested in a trial for the GB U23 teams that will play in 2015 please fill out this form.
