Women's Ultimate FIND A TEAM INITIATIVE

Happy International Women’s Day!

Here at the UKU Women’s Committee we’ve been working hard to create and promote ways to get more women playing. Today we are launching a project designed to do just this, introducing...


The UKU Women's Find A Team initiative!

This is a new initiative by the UKU to match players to women's teams, or to match players with each other to form new club teams. The aim is to promote the development of Women’s Ultimate in the UK and raise awareness of playing opportunities available across the country.

UKU Mixed Tour 1 - DRAFT Schedule

We are pleased to announce the DRAFT schedule for this weekend's Mixed Tour 1 in Cardiff. As ever, it's a draft initially so that a hundred pairs of eyes can help spot any issues - but hopefully it shouldn't be too far off given that it's practically identical to last year! Don't book your transport based on this until tomorrow - we'll hopefully spot any issues by the end of today.

London Youth Games - FANFEST

Last week Crystal Palace National Sports Centre hosted the London Youth Games. As part of their Fanfest event over 100 Primary school children got to try playing Ultimate. Even though it was a windy day all came away with basic skills and had loads of questions about playing more when they got back to school! Hopefully it won’t be too long before Ultimate is included in the Youth Games themselves!

UXON Important announcement

All teams to read and complete survey included below

Heavy rain in Leicester combined with the University's ongoing varsity fixtures has put significant stress on the pitches at Stoughton Road (UXON venue). The results of this is that we have lost HALF of the pitches we had booked for UXON this weekend, there is a small possibility that we may get 1 or 2 of them back on Sunday but at the moment we are working off the assumption that we only have half the available pitch time we originally booked. Please read the whole announcement.
