UKU Ranking Events - OPEN & WOMEN’S 2019

Early Bird entries are now OPEN for Moor Lane 2019 - the Women’s & Tier 1 Open event taking place in Birmingham on 13th-14th July 2019 - and we can confirm that the Northern Open & Women’s Round 2 event, now called “Junction 7” will be taking place at Sale United FC on 22nd-23rd June 2019! 


Junction 7 entries are now open with the other 2nd Round Tier 2 events - Rhymney Cup & Midsummer Madness - until 22nd May. You can enter using the GoMembership website. Please note that as capacity is limited at this venue, priority will be given to the Women's teams that wish to enter and then the remaining spaces will be allocated to the Open division.

 

 

Full details for the 3rd Round Open & Women’s event Moor Lane can now be found on the UKU Event Page and you can enter on the GoMembership website HERE. Unfortunately, due to no bids being received and difficulty finding venues, an Open Tier 2 NORTH event will no longer be taking place on 13th-14th July. The only Open Tier 2 events that will be taking place are Moor Lane (Midlands) and Edenbridge (South East).
