GB teams withdrawing from European Youth Ultimate Championships 2021

In January, the World Flying Disc Federation,(WFDF), announced that their events in 2021 were all being cancelled.  The international calendar 2021 also includes the European Ultimate Federation (EUF) European Youth Ultimate Championships (EYUC):

  • U20s in Malmö in Sweden, 17-24 July;
  • U17s in Hollabrunn in Austria, 7-14 August.  

The EUF has said that they will publish their go/no-go decision regarding these events in early April. 

 

With great sadness, we have decided that we will not send Great Britain youth teams to either of the EYUC events in 2021 regardless of whether or not the events go ahead.  The UK Ultimate staff and volunteers involved recognise the complexity of the decision: it's impact on all of the players and the local organisers, and indeed the potential financial implications to some of the teams that were affected by the cancellation of WJUC 2020.  The decision was not made lightly.

Return-to-Play Update - 23rd February

With lockdown we’ve been a little bit quiet, working on things behind the scenes, but following the government’s announcement yesterday we just wanted to reach out to you all to let you know that we’re reviewing the Return to Play situation.

Do you have too much kit, taking up space in your drawers and never getting worn?

 

Or, do you want even more? Maybe you're a student, just starting out and in need of a basic jersey or a pair of decent shorts - or maybe you're a bit of a hoarder. Jerseys, shorts, discs, anything! Just give it to me! 

 

Now there's a place to buy and sell used Ultimate kit. And the best part? The money goes to charity. Everybody wins.

Thank you to all of the individuals that donated to our Reset the Stall campaign!

We're working on processing everyone's rewards, but for now here is a small thank you to each and every one of you.
