UOWON & Alumni Cup Update

Following the closing date for University Open and Women's Outdoor Nationals, we can now update you with news of teams entered.

 

For the Alumni Cup, more info was just sent out to your team contacts - but for everyone who didn't enter yet, there ARE still places available in that division if you're able to get something together! It doesn't look like Women's will be so very large as to limit the Alumni competition, so get entered ASAP if you can.

 

In the Open division, 32 of 36 qualifying teams have entered, and the remaining 4 have all confirmed that they will enter as soon as their AU is back from Easter holidays. So if you were hoping for a reserve spot, no joy!

 

In the Women's division, 30 teams have entered. As made clear in the entry information, these teams will now be expected to pay (dropouts now will not be excused the fees) - it's OK if it takes your Uni a little while to process the payment, but we won't be letting anyone off!

Given the current numbers, we intend to temporarily cap that division at 32 teams, meaning that there are 2 more spaces (first come first served). Should we get as many as 36 wishing to enter, we may extend it; but at this stage, after the closing date, we won't be writing a schedule for difficult numbers like 33 or 35. Additional teams above 32 will go on a waiting list until either someone drops out or we get enough teams to sensibly extend the division.
