The Challenge League - What is it?

Not sure what the Challenge League is?

We've put together a mini info-series of videos so that you can find out!

 

 

Interested in taking part? Your teams can sign up to the Challenge League HERE. Once you've registered, you'll be able to see all of the other teams that also want to play so that you can start to arrange games with them. 

 

We will be publishing a full list of registered teams soon, as well as a map of where you can find them, along with more details on the rankings. Keep an eye out for future updates! 

Return to play - Phase D stall-count

We have received some queries about the implementation of the third-party stall-count as we move into a period where games are perhaps more competitive.  As a result we are publishing the attached guidance which recommends an approach to this situation that should be adopted unless both teams agree to an alternative that they both prefer.

We would like to reiterate the importance of following the Return-to-play procedures.  Ultimate is a close-contact team sport.  Our rule modifications and other covid-related procedures have been signed off by the UK Government and it is only because of those modifications that we are able to play something approaching normal Ultimate at the moment.  Several other team sports (notably rugby and netball) are still subject to similar or more substantial rule modifications.  

COVID Guidance Update - Scotland

Following clarification from sportscotland on the definition of a 'bubble' and the maximum number of participants per day, we have updated the UKU Club Guidance Appendix - Scotland

 

Please ensure that you read the updated Scottish appendix as this may impact any fixtures planned to take place in Scotland. 

 

We also just wanted to let you all know that we are keeping an eye on all government updates in terms of the wider, developing situation with the Indian variant across the UK. We are continuing to review the guidance published and we will announce any updates on our usual channels (the UKU website, Facebook and Instagram).

Thank you to all of the teams that entered into the UKU National Cup! We’ve had a fantastic number of entries, and following some work on what this will mean for scheduling games, we are now able to publish the complete 2021 calendar for the National Series*.

Play Ultimate 2021 - Really no weekend tournaments?

With restrictions easing and organised sport being permitted again, we’re aware that you’re all probably waiting to see what Ultimate will look like in 2021… You can find our plans for the coming year HERE, which include major changes to UKU Rankings and Club Nationals. But above all, we just want to encourage people to get back out there, play lots of Ultimate, and help rebuild the sport in their area.

Frizbay. The Ultimate trading site

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.
