GB Calendar 2021

The GB Committee is excited to announce the following dates in relation to the GB teams participating in both World and European events in 2021. We are looking to advertise and confirm the squad managers for the GB teams earlier than in previous years. This does not necessarily mean that either trials or player selections will also take place earlier rather it is designed to give the managers more time to prepare for their new role before holding a trial session.

UKU Coach Forum on Girls' Ultimate - 18th February 2020

Firstly, what is a UKU Coach Forum?

These are small online events. They are designed as an opportunity for coaches, leaders and those interested to come together to discuss a topic. The format will generally follow an introductory presentation followed by an opportunity for participants to pose questions, discuss their own experiences and learn from others. They will usually be held over 1-2 hours of an evening.

UKU Mixed League

We are trying to introduce new formats of competition - primarily because we believe it will improve accessibility to ultimate.  With this in mind we are looking to trial one or more mixed leagues this year.

GB Open and Womens Masters Squad Managers Update

Following our final call for Masters squad managers for WMUC 2020 we are pleased to announce the squad managers for the Great Britain Open Masters team 2020 are Richard Jones and Larry Larkin. More news will follow soon about the process to apply and trial to join the squad. 


Unfortunately despite multiple requests for applicants for squad managers for the Women's squad we have received no interest in the position. The timing and location of WMUC 2020 has made it particularly challenging this time around, but we have now concluded that we will have to admit defeat.  Sadly, that means we will not be sending a Women's Masters team to WMUC 2020.
