UKU Entry Rules

The closing date and payment date will be Thursday 2nd March if places remain open after that date, they may be filled on a first-pay first-play basis. UKU reserve the right to refuse a late entry if it will compromise the tournament for others – for example by adversely affecting the schedule – and to place the team on a waiting list instead.

 

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

  • First teams will get priority over second teams, and second over third etc.
  • Teams from within region
  • First to pay for entry.

If the cut-off happens to fall between 2 or more teams who paid on the same day then, a lottery will be run between those teams to determine entry.

 

Which region are we in?

Please note we're happy for teams to enter whichever regional event they would like to.

UKU University Mixed Outdoor Nationals 2016-17

Submitted by ukuadministrator on Tue, 21/02/2017 - 12:54pm
Event date: 
25 Mar 2017 - 09:00 - 26 Mar 2017 - 17:00
Event details: 

 

University Mixed Outdoor Nationals will be held on the weekend of 25-26 March at Leicester University.

IMPORTANT UPDATE. ALL Teams please read whole announcement and complete survery here.

 

Update 24th March

Info Pack V2.1 includes a pitch map, a link to the league vine website with the schedule and updated tournament rules.

 

Update 21st March

Info Pack 2.0 provides some further details including a reminder of the gender rules being used at the event.


Update 17th March

Information Pack version 1 provides some additional details.  This document will be updated in the final days before the event.

Registration is closed.  Teams that enter at this stage will be placed on a waiting list.

****************************************************************************

Update 13 March 2017: The teams listed at the bottom of the page are confirmed.

We are aware that some teams are going to want help with accommodation.  The event is large and we probably cannot help everyone.  Please use the following form to let us know your situation:  https://goo.gl/forms/5AxiNVErNxvWHCab2

Even if you do NOT want or need help it would be great if you could confirm this via the form please.

The UKU event entry form will remain open and available, but teams entering now will be placed on a waiting list.

*****************************************************************************

For this Mixed event, each point will be played with 3 of one gender and 4 of the other. Make sure you have enough of both!

For the gender balance of each point, we will be playing the 'Endzone Decides' rule from the 2017 WFDF Appendix (instead of the old 'Offence Decides' rule) - check out the rule below. Make sure you're familiar with how that all works!

 

A7.3. Ratio Rule B (“end zone decides” rule):
A7.3.1. At the start of the game, after the first disc flip, an additional disc flip happens
with the winner selecting which end zone is “End zone A”, with the other end
zone becoming “End zone B”. At the start of each point the Team that is at End
zone A must choose the gender ratio. This process applies for the first half. For
the second half, at the start of each point the Team that is at End zone B must
choose the gender ratio.

 


We'll run a Swiss Draw format like last year (similar to Windmill) which will give us a fair tournament with lots of close matches even though we expect a sizeable number of teams. We have capacity for 48 teams this year. 

We do not guarantee to be able to provide accommodation for everyone, but we will try and source as much as we can with local players or in scout huts. Please do not ask for accommodation unless you really need it as it's likely to be a challenge for an event this size!
