European Championship Review

Congratulations to the GB Mixed and Open teams who both won Gold at the recent European Ultimate Championships (EUC) in Gyor, Hungary. Both teams retained their 2015 titles in closely fought games, with the Mixed team beating France 13-12 and the Open team winning a hotly anticipated game against Germany 15-14. Both teams were unbeaten throughout the tournament, with the Mixed team ending EUC with a points difference of +90 and Open finishing with a points difference of +85*. 


The GB Womens’ team finished the tournament in 11th place. Although a lower placing than previous European Championships (5th place in 2015), the women had several notable results throughout the week including a 13-14 loss to eventual silver medallists Switzerland and 13-15 loss to subsequent semi-finalists Italy. Credit should also be given to the GB Womens’ team for a valiant fight back from 2-8 down to 11-13 in an exciting pre-quarter game against France. Results across the Womens’ division show growing strength and depth in this division; a promising outlook for women’s ultimate in Europe.

UKU Junior Open Outdoor Nationals & Schools National Championships 2018-19 - Additional Information

***Hot Weather***


The forecast for this weekend is for a continuation of the very hot weather we have been having over the past few days. Please bear this in mind when packing for the weekend. Bring sun cream and apply it regularly, make sure you have plenty of water (equivalent to 2 x 1 litre bottles, and top them up throughout the day) and bring a hat to wear (at least when on the sideline).


We recommend taking the opportunity to shelter indoors if you have any long breaks. Use the shade of trees when off the pitch or doing spirit circles.
