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 Indoor National 2019-20 - Final Standings, Spirit Results & Lost Property

Thank you to everyone that took part in University Men's Indoor Nationals - it was a fantastic, competitive weekend!

 

Huge congratulations to Sussex 1, who came away on top after a strong performance in the final against Durham 1! Also, well done to Bristol 1 for winning the Division 2 event.

 

NEW Tartan Tour 2020

What is the Tartan Tour?

The Tartan Tour is a new addition to the Scottish Ultimate calendar to try to develop the outdoor club scene. The aim is to boost participation at club level and offer more local playing opportunities for everyone. So far, there are four one-day events planned (2 x mixed, 2 x open/women's) around Scotland between March and June.

Didn't get into CXIN? Let us know if you want to play at The Spiceball Cup instead!

Just a reminder for all of the teams that weren't allocated a space at CXIN to please let us know by SUNDAY 16th FEBRUARY if you WILL or WON'T take up your spot at the one day event being held in Banbury. The list of teams that this applies to is below. 

 

Alternatively, if you'd like to go to the event now that it's just one day and possibly closer to home, please let us know! We'd love to accommodate as many teams as possible, and there may be space for your team to enter even if you didn't enter the original CXIN event. 


The competition will run from 9am-8pm on Sunday 8th March ONLY.

Club Open & Women's Indoor Nationals 2020 - DRAFT Schedule

The DRAFT schedule for Club Open & Women's Nationals, taking place next weekend at Cranford Superdome, is now available to view. The draft schedule link can be found on the COWIN Event Website HERE

 

As ever, please DO NOT make any concrete travel plans/logistical arrangements until the schedule is confirmed. However, please double check it to ensure that there aren't any issues. If you have any questions/queries, please email events@ukultimate.com.

Interested in more Ultimate in your area? Want to travel less to UKU Ranking Events?

At the moment we only have a couple of Tier 2 events that might be taking place this season, so if you'd like to host a competition in your area - meaning that both you and others can play more Ultimate - get in touch!

 

Any event, any size - we want to hear from you. 

 

There are a number of events that we’d definitely like to go ahead if possible. The list of where/when those events would be can be found at the bottom of the page HERE: https://www.ukultimate.com/club_ultimate/bid_process_run_uku_club_outdoor_events. This is so that we can try and reach as many players as possible with these events. 


However, if you’d like to host an event in your area that isn’t on the list, please still let us know. There is a huge scope for the ranking events to be what you want them to be, so make sure to get in touch if you’re keen! 

University Women's Indoor National 2019-20 - Final Standings, Spirit Results & Lost Property

Thank you to everyone that took part over the weekend - it was a great event! We hope that you all eventually managed to get home safely too, despite the storm.

 

Huge congratulations to Newcastle 1, who took away the Championship trophy after a competitively fought final against Leeds 1! Also, well done to Brighton 1 for winning the Division 2 event.

CXIN 2020 - Venues Update & Confirmed Team List

Since our previous announcement, we have been exploring the options for the upcoming CXIN event following the unexpectedly high number of entries that we received. 

 

Unfortunately we have been unable to find any suitable venues which have availability in the nearby, surrounding area to the CXIN venue. However, we have found a 2 pitch venue - Spiceball Leisure Centre in Banbury - that will be able to accommodate a full day booking on SUNDAY 8TH MARCH for a one day event! As such, we have carried out the allocation criteria for CXIN, and then created a secondary team list, confirming the teams that will have a space at the Spiceball venue should everyone still wish to compete at an indoor event that weekend. 

 

There is more information for both competitions below.
