UKU Mixed Tour 2 2017 - Results and Spirit

Thanks to everyone involved for what was a great Mixed Tour 2 in Durham last week - not least because the weather turned out lovely!

The more northerly teams, on home turf, continued the strong start they made at the first event 'down South', with half of the Edinburgh-based Black Eagles squad once again taking the trophy (this time it was their D line, Black Blackbirds, beating their O line and MT1 champions Great Black White Sharks in the final). With local team SMOG 1 taking third, it was left to Reading to represent the South in 4th place.

UKU Mixed Tour 2 2017 Durham - schedule and info

We are pleased to announce schedule and player-info for this weekend's UKU Mixed Tour 2 in Durham.  This is somewhat later than we would like but we have had teams dropout this week, and then also lost two pitches that have not recovered as expected following heavy use during the winter.  So there have been a few re-writes...  

Info-pack is available here (or here as PDF) with PDF pitch map here.

The online schedule can be found here (or as a pdf here).



Apparently there is a major road closure in the centre of Durham affecting New Elvet bridge, New Elvet and Old Elvet.  This will block the main/obvious route from the city centre to the University sports fields.  Advice is to avoid driving in or through the centre of Durham if possible.

To get to Durham University sports centre from the A1(M) use Bowburn Exit, Jn 61, and then A177.
