Statement on Ben Pocock

We are saddened and shocked to hear that a member of our community, Ben Pocock, was on board the plane which crashed over the Ukraine this week. Ben was a popular and much respected member of the Loughborugh University team and of EMO Ultimate.  Our thoughts are with Ben's family at this difficult time.

UKU Open and Women's Tour Final Standings 2014

We are delighted to congratulate Clapham (Open) and Punt (Women's) - the UKU Tour Champions 2014.

Despite one or two close games along the way, Clapham proved to be comfortably the strongest team in the UK once again - and very possibly the strongest in Europe if London Calling is anything to go by!

UKU Regionals - Reminder of rostering rules

All teams playing this weekend are reminded that:

a) all players require at least Basic membership

b) some rostering rules do still apply

UKU Venue Database - your help needed!

UK Ultimate will be centrally organising more and more tournaments in the future - starting with the University tournaments this academic year, as previously announced on the Uni groups (see attached). This will ensure that any monies raised go back into the development of the sport in this country, and that we can continue to make improvements to the quality of all our events.

Your chance to play some Ultimate...

UKU Regionals and Nationals

What is regionals for?

Regionals is, above all, a chance to play a local tournament. Each year we hear of one or two teams not attending because they don't think they'll qualify for Nationals - which when you think about it is all backward.
