Beach Nationals 2017 is now open for registration.  These will be held on the 16th and 17th September on Sandbanks beach, the same location as last year's competition.  Please read on or look here for more information.

The planned format is a three division, 8-team tournament for Open, Women’s, and Mixed. However, if there are insufficient entries for a particular division then it may not go ahead, and another division expanded according to demand. This decision will be made once the closing date has passed. Please note that accommodation is not available for this tournament, so consider this in your planning when arranging a team. A list of nearby hotels and campsites will be sent to entrants. 

Entry is made by emailing sunburn.bournemouth@outlook.com with the following information:

- Team name

- Contact Name

- Contact Email and Phone

- Secondary Contact

- Additional relevant information (previous beach tournaments entered, finishing position, player details)

 

The deadline for submitting a team is Thursday 10th August. After this date, if over-subscribed, the entry rules will be applied to teams as outlined below. Selected teams will be required to make payment of £160, which will be detailed in their confirmation email.

 

ENTRY RULES

For tournaments that are over-subscribed at the closing date the following rules will apply, in order:

- Teams from clubs who have completed Club Affiliation to the UKU will have priority over those who have not

 - Teams not on the blacklist (for late dropouts at previous events) will get priority over those who are

 - Teams finishing in the top 1/3 of the same event in the previous year*

- Teams finishing in the top 1/3 of places in any 2017 beach tournament*

 

 Additional notes:

First teams will NOT get priority over second teams - it is so easy to simply change the name of a 'second team' to avoid such a rule, which would disadvantage those 'proper' clubs who have a real identity.

 If spaces remain after the closing date, teams will be awarded spaces based on the order of DATE (not exact time) that payment was sent. This will be assumed to be the date payment was received unless there is additional information (e.g. screenshot of transfer, postmark on stamp etc.)

If there remain too many teams - which cannot be separated by the above - for the remaining places, a lottery will be run for ONLY those inseparable teams, for those places.

 

 

*We're obviously not able to check that your roster is sufficiently related to the roster for that previous tournament under the same name - but we expect teams to apply some SotG to that.

Event details: 

In 2012, our friend Jeremy was cruelly taken from us by the Powers That Be. So in memorial we have been hosting a tribute Ultimate Frisbee tournament to his absence ever since. And with this tradition in mind, we are pleased to announce that the Jeremy Moore Memorial Hat Tournament is returning to Exmouth beach in 2017 for another competition. As with previous years, all are welcome to attend, with all levels of ability and experience. The tournament will pick names from a hat to ensure the teams are as evenly split as possible.

Sunburn Beach Tournament 2015

Event date:

Event details: 

This year, we’re back to being our ‘regular’ Sunburn tournament (though keep an eye out for beach Nats around September time, hopefully at the same location).

 

 

The site for this year’s tournament has moved! We are now back at the lovely sandy beach at Sandbanks (the location for GB beach trials/trainings, Windfest, Sunburns circa 2010, and Frostbite). You can expect everything teams have come to love about our tournament –music, marquees, stats of scores and assists, pitches with barriers separating us from the public, a great party and a beautiful seaside location. The main reason for our change of venue is because of the wonderful pitch conditions – we’ve hand-picked the location so there shouldn’t be anywhere near the amount of stones we had at Boscombe last year.

 

We expect team fees to be £130, which pays for two days’ ultimate, entry to the party, and like last year we hope to provide a buffet at the evening venue as well. The tournament will have approximately 16 teams playing, with plenty of our lovely Bournemouth Heat players on hand to make sure that Sunburn remains a highlight of the summer’s schedule!

 

Please register your interest/sign up by emailing sunburn.bournemouth@outlook.com

We’ll be sending out payment details in the near future. Your spot isn’t guaranteed until you pay!

 

Please be aware that the old website, which has hosted Sunburn details in the past, is currently in the process of being mothballed. Until its replacement is up-and-running, please direct all enquiries to the above email address.

 

We hope to hear from you soon,
