UKU Event Announcements
This newsletter is intended to provide a simple stream of information about UKU events. At the point of launch, the intention is that this will provide a definitive source of the most important information relating to UKU events: - dates - registration processes - news updates in the weeks preceding an event (e.g. schedule released, etc)
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.

Update 16th Feb:
Please see below for an update on definite and provisional dates and venues for outdoors competitions in 2017. All of the dates below are fixed. Venues in bold are confirmed. All other venues are provisional, so please do not make any travel plans or book accomodation based upon them! As you will see we are still working on a few gaps. We do understand that early confirmation is important and we are working on it.
* Please note that in the Open division we are making some changes in 2017 to accommodate all the teams that usually want to enter. At OWT2 and OWT3, there will be a second venue in a different location to accommodate some of the B&C division teams. Our goal is to have venues and a competition structure that will reduce travel times for most of the teams attending that second venue. In the information below we are assuming that the events labelled B-"north" and B-"south" will cater for all C-Tour teams as well as B-Tour teams.
Note also that the following dates have now been fixed:
OWT3 15-16 July
Regionals (all divisions) 29-30 July
Information Pack version 1 provides some additional details about the event. This document will be updated in the final days before the event with pitch map, link to the swiss draw schedule page and other updates as needed.
Registration is closed. Teams that enter at this stage will be placed on a waiting list.
Congratulations to Edinburgh (Women) and St Andrews (Open) for their victories at SSS Champs this weekend. Congratulations also to the Women's teams from Aberdeen, Glasgow and St Andrews who through their results at this event booked their placed (alongside Edinburgh) at BUCS Championships in Nottingham in April.
A total of 35 teams competed in four UWOR events over the weekend of 11-12 March. Details for the Western, Northern and Eastern regions below. The Scottish results will be published separately.
Congratulations to Danger! High Voltage for their title-retaining performance at last week's truly fantastic Club Mixed Indoor Nationals, and to Red for taking home the Spirit of the Game award. Twenty-eight teams battled hard all weekend at the excellent new Derby Arena venue, with cyclists whizzing past around the outside of the pitches, and Danger! overcame Hex in the final to keep hold of the trophy for another year.
We have some space at the EAST 1-day Open Uni warm-up tournament on Saturday 11th March – more info here:
