Congratulations to Flux (pictured, from Twycross House School, Warwickshire) whose teams won in all three divisions (U20, U17, U14) at Junior Women's Indoor Nationals on Sun 6 November 2016. Full results are available here. Spirit of the Game was won by WHS1, Flux 1, and Evolution in the U20, U17 and U14 divisions respectively (full results below).
The UKU are collecting data about and from GB players (past and present) to help guide planning around GB Squads and player development in the future. If you have ever played for one of the GB teams, we would be grateful if you could take a few minutes to complete the survey.
We estimate it will take 5-10 minutes for most people to complete and your responses will be treated confidentially. Thanks for your support - and please pass the link to other people that you know played for GB in the past - we’re keen to gather as much data as we can.
Entries are coming in nicely for the two UKU Club Indoor regional events in December. The Coventry event in particular is potentially very nearly full already! This is just a reminder to those who haven't filled the form yet (or have done that but not paid) that the closing date, for both entry and payment, is this Thursday, 18th November.
Thanks to everyone involved, and particularly the various TDs across the country, for a fantastic set of Men's regionals. Thanks also to Five Europe for providing some sweet swag at our events too!
Congratulations to all the winners and all those who qualified for University Men's Indoor Nationals. Entries for that event will be opened at some point by BUCS - no immediate rush! But if anyone is thinking they might not attend (very rare in this division!), then do let us know so we can contact replacement teams.

We are pleased to now confirm the schedules for this weekend's UMIR tournaments.
Entries are now open for Club Open Indoor Regionals in Coventry and Redbridge (3/4 Dec), and for Club Women's Indoor Nationals near Glasgow (18/19 Feb 2017). If you qualify through the regionals (Open) or simply make the trek North (Women) then you could be playing the kind of indoors many of us have dreamed about - a 3G surface, on 4 huge 40x20 pitches with over 5m clearance all around every pitch...
A group of 5 UK players recently set a World record for the highest game of Ultimate ever played. WFDF have recognised GB player Claerwen Snell as the organiser of the "Worlds Highest Altitude Ultimate Game". The idea was born as a way to celebrate Claerwen's 40th Birthday. The UK players were joined in the game by 9 of their Tanzanian guides in playing a game on Mount Kilimanjaro.
Congratulations to everyone involved in making this happen.
If you want to find out more about it then check out this video.
To support the Tanzanian Ultimate community in growing grass roots Ultimate one of the UK players involved is trying to send some discs to them. If you have any spare discs you could donate to the cause then get in touch with Mike Hawkins by emailing email@example.com.
