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.

 

For the teams that were unfortunately put onto a waitlist for the event, please don’t worry, there is still a chance that you could be awarded a spot at the Tier 1 event! As outlined HERE, if any of the Protected Team spots are not filled by the Closing Date then these places will become available for other teams to take up. If the event is still oversubscribed on this date, these remaining spots will then be allocated using the Tier 1 allocation criteria for all of the teams that have entered the Tier 1 event up until that point. However, you do not have to stay on the waitlist for the Tier 1 event if you do not wish to. 

 

If you no longer wish to be on the Tier 1 waitlist after the Early Bird Deadline, or if the Tier 1 event is oversubscribed at the time of Closing Date, you can opt-in to be considered for one of the Tier 2 events taking place in that ‘Round’ instead*. If you do opt-in to be included in the Tier 2 event’s team entries, this means that you will be considered as a normal Tier 2 entry. You will not automatically be awarded a Tier 2 spot if you are not allocated a space at the Tier 1 event. At the time of the Closing Date, the Tier 2 entry allocation criteria will be carried out for each Tier 2 event, including the teams from the Tier 1 waitlist if they wish to be considered. If this applies to your team for The Grey Towers of Durham, please email events@ukultimate.com to clarify whether you want to remain on the Tier 1 waitlist or to opt-in to a Tier 2 event. 

 

If you are not awarded a space at a Tier 2 event after the allocation procedure has been carried out at the Closing Date, you can either choose to remain on the waitlist until closer to the event in the case of drop outs or your team entry fee can be refunded to you. In the case of Early Bird Tier 1 entries ending up with a space at a Tier 2 event instead, you will not be expected to pay the difference in the team entry fee.

 

The remaining Tier 1 entries for The Grey Towers of Durham, and for both the Tier 2 events in Durham and St Albans (Spring Showdown) are open NOW on the GoMembership website until the Closing Date on 27th MarchAlso, details of the recently confirmed southern Tier 2 event can be found HERE

 

Not sure what the difference is between the Early Bird Deadline and the Closing Date?

Full details regarding how the new entry process works can be found in the NEW Club Outdoor Event Entry Procedure which we recommend that you familiarise yourself with, and if you have any questions then please email events@ukultimate.com and we will be happy to help. 

 

*If the Tier 1 event is oversubscribed at the time of the entry deadline and your team is not awarded a space, we assume that you will enter one of the Tier 2 events taking place in the same round. You will be required to confirm which of those events you wish to enter at the time of entry, or you can state "NONE" is you wish to withdraw your entry in these circumstances.
