UKU Event Announcements

This newsletter is intended to provide a simple stream of information about UKU events. At the point of launch, the intention is that this will provide a definitive source of the most important information relating to UKU events: - dates - registration processes - news updates in the weeks preceding an event (e.g. schedule released, etc)

University Men’s & Women’s Nationals 2020 - Cancelled

As the COVID-19 situation continues to develop, unfortunately University Men’s & Women’s Outdoor Nationals 2020 (4th-5th April) is now cancelled. 

 

Announcement to confirm cancellation of Y Ddraig Goch 2020

Given the developing situation it is clear that we will be making substantial changes to the 2020 outdoor season.  We are in contact with our tournament venues and other partners about our events and how to handle the impact.

Today we are announcing that YDG 2020 (28-29 March) has been cancelled.

Please see our latest statement.  We will provide more information about YDG and other events as soon as we can over the coming days.  Thanks for your patience.

EUCS Bids 2020 & Rule Update for UKU Events

Following the latest WFDF appendix release, the Competitions Committee has agreed to implement the rule changes that apply to UKU events; section A7 - Receiving Fouls. The full WFDF appendix (including a track changes version) can be found here: http://www.wfdf.org/about/meeting-minutes/cat_view/26-rules-of-play/32-ultimate  

 

Also, after the EUCF decision to implement Gender Ratio Rule A at all EUF events from 2020, UK Ultimate will also be implementing the rule for UKU Nationals 2020 ONLY. Gender Ratio Rule B will continue to be used at ALL 2019-20 events EXCEPT UKU Nationals (EUCR-West). However, should both opponents agree, teams may use Rule A for their game(s) should they wish to.

Confirmed UKU Ranking Events 2020

Following our previous announcement about the second round of Mixed ranking events, we would like to confirm the events and venues that have been secured so far for 2020. 

 

There are still quite a few events that we are unable to confirm yet - highlighted by NO BIDS below - so if you and/or your team would like to organise an event for any of the outstanding dates or help us secure a venue for one, please get in touch by emailing events@ukultimate.com. Unfortunately, if we cannot confirm any bookings for those that aren't yet finalised then the events may not be able to go ahead, so any help or venue information would be greatly appreciated.

Just a reminder that the Early Bird Deadline for Nottingham Windfarm is tomorrow (Thursday 5th March)! Teams can enter using the UKU GoMembership website.

Club Mixed Indoor Nationals & Spiceball Cup 2020 - Schedule Update

Since the publication of the DRAFT schedules for CXIN and the Spiceball Cup, we have had to make a few changes due to a dropout and moving teams. This has meant that at BOTH events teams' seedings and start times have changed.

 

Please double check your event's schedule to ensure that you have the correct start time for your team (the schedule links can be found on the CXIN Event Website HERE and in the Spiceball Cup Info Pack HERE). However, with no indication that there will be any further issues, we are pleased to now CONFIRM the two schedules. 

 

Ahead of the weekend, please also make sure that all of your players have the correct level of membership for the event and are rostered to the team that you entered on GoMembership. 

 

If you have any other questions/queries, please email events@ukultimate.com
