THE GREY TOWERS OF DURHAM - CAR PARKING

 For all players planning on driving to the event this weekend, please read the following carefully:

  • Players will be unable to park at the Durham University Sports Centre by the fields. 
  • The MAIN CAR PARK will be a 10 minute walk away from the fields - please factor this into your travel plans so that you're not late for your first game.
  • There will be two overflow car parks that will be available should the main car park be filled. 
  • Only one member of staff will be managing the main car park, so please help us by parking responsibly and close to the other parked cars to maximise use of the space. 
  • Cars are left at the owners' risk. Please do not leave valuables unattended and/or on show in your vehicle. 

The details of where the car park(s) are and how you can get to the fields can be found on the Pitch Map on the Grey Towers Event Website Please make sure that all of your players are aware of this information, as well as any spectators that may be coming to watch. 

 

SCHEDULES

We are pleased to now confirm the schedules for the weekend. However, there have been some changes

 

Due to a dropout from The Grey Towers of Durham Tier 2 event, we have re-organised the schedule. This is so that the teams who are still competing are not adversley affected by the change. This does mean though that teams may be in a different pool to the one that they were in previously and teams' start times may have changed. Please double check the new, up to date schedule HERE
 
Please note that there is a NEW schedule link for the Durham event: http://bit.ly/2UT1YYl
 
For Spring Showdown, there has been a slight change in the seedings. We do not believe that any teams' start times have changed, but please make sure that you check this yourself and that you have the correct information.

In summary, please make sure that you check the updated schedule so that you have the correct start times and pitch numbers for your team’s games as they are likely to have changed since the draft schedule was published. You should also familiarise yourself with the Rules & Formats page on the relevant schedule. 

 

If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to get in touch at events@ukultimate.com. Otherwise, we look forward to seeing you this weekend!
