We have some space at the EAST 1-day Open Uni warm-up tournament on Saturday 11th March – more info here:
We would like to provide an update on plans for UKU Tour 2017 in the Open division. It has been clear for some years that the structure is not scalable as the number of Open and Women’s teams continues to grow. We have been planning for some time that we would start to make changes in 2017, although we would obviously prefer to have resolved all of the issues earlier than this.
In 2017 we are only making changes to the Open division, but we recognise there is a body of opinion in the community that is asking for a broader review of the Tour structure and timing. We will have an ongoing consultation process about the competition structure and calendar over the next few months.
The role of the UKU Competitions Committee is to manage the structure and rules for all UKU competitions. We have several vacancies in the committee at the moment - but in particular Lauren Bryant, who represents the Women's division is stepping down. We woud like to thank Lauren for all the time, energy and expertise she has given to the role for the last few years.
If you would like to join the committee in any of the vacant positions (Women's, Junior and Beach) please use the website to contact us or email firstname.lastname@example.org outlining the role you would like to stand for, and some information about your background and interest in the position.
Congratulation to Flux 1 (Twycross House School) for an epic victory at UKU U20 Nationals in Wolverhampton last weekend. Down 9-6 to AirBadgers 1 (St Peter's, Exeter) as the hooter sounded, they put in 4 in a row to win the game, inspired by a spectacular, momentum-changing diving block from MVP Ethan Morrell (back row, centre).
In advance of this weekend's huge Club Mixed Indoor Nationals in Derby, we have quite a bit of important info. Please do read the Info Pack carefully as it contains a number of important nuggets.
Just in case anyone is thinking they can get away without reading it, here's a flavour of how important some things are:
Announcing another UKU Level 1 Coaching Course opportunity in READING on Saturday 25th March 2017.
Due to the existence of a waiting list for CXIN next weekend, we feel confident in publishing the schedule nice and early for once! If anyone does drop out, the replacement team will take their seeding - without affecting any other team's times of play.
We are excited to announce another UKU Level 1 Coaching Course in GLASGOW, on Saturday 6th May 2017. This course will be held at Glasgow University.
