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)

UKU Ranking Event "The Grey Towers of Durham 2019" - Early Bird Team List Confirmed & Final Entry Closing Date 27th March!

Thank you to all of the teams that entered into the Tier 1 event, The Grey Towers of Durham before the Early Bird Deadline! However, after taking into account the Protected Team spots that are kept available until the Closing Date, unfortunately the Tier 1 event was oversubscribed at the time of the Early Bird Deadline and so not all of the entered teams could be awarded a space. The full list of confirmed teams for the event so far can be seen below, as per the NEW Club Outdoor Event Entry Procedure.

UWOR & Uni Open Warm-Up Game Lengths

Following a recent query regarding the game length time for the University Women’s Outdoor Regionals events this weekend, we wanted to clarify that the decision to make the games 40 minutes (+cap) long is not as a result of the Open Warm-Up events being run at the same time.

Games will now start at 1.30pm today and will finish at approximately 8.10pm this evening.  Games are largely unaffected, however ALL first round pool games will be 17 minutes long and the last round of Pool M games will be played tomorrow morning at 9am (instead of at the end on Saturday). There have also been some minor adjustments to the game order on Sunday morning, but the knockout bracket and Pool C games will remain at 23 mins on Sunday.

IMPORTANT - COWIN DELAYED

Unfortunately there have been some issues with the Cranford Superdome venue this morning so the COWIN event is current DELAYED. We cannot confirm exactly when games will start yet but we hope that the event will still go ahead.
