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)

UKU Open & Women's Tour - Standings after 2 events

You can now peruse the aggregated rankings after 2 of the 3 UKU Tour events for 2017 - where are you in the standings right now?


OWT2 Spirit Results & Regionals Entry Reminder

This is a reminder to ALL TEAMS that the closing date for entry into Regionals is today.

The decision will be made on the details of each division following the deadline so please make sure that you complete your entry form today if you are interested in playing. Also, please do not assume that you can enter late into the tournament and still be guaranteed a space as the format of each divison will be based on the number of teams that have entered before the deadline.

The UKU Event Entry form can be found here.

However, on a happier note, we can now announce that the winners of the Spirit of the Game for Tour 2 are Purple Cobras for the Open Division and Reading 1 in the Women's Division. Congratulations to both teams!

Open & Women's Tour 2 2017 - Results and Spirit

Congratulations to all teams for another great Tour weekend in both Cardiff and Salford! It appears that everyone was lucky enough to get some nice weather (and probably a bit of sunburn to go with it!)


UKU Open & Women's Tour 2 - Schedule Update

The Cardiff schedule is now confirmed for the weekend.


The Salford schedule has been completely rewritten due to dropping from 13 teams to 12. The pools have changed, your start times have potentially changed - it's a wholly new schedule. If you based your plans on the previous draft, then that is unfortunate - you were specifically told not to do so for exactly this contingency!


Once again, the Salford schedule will probably have to remain as a draft until at least this evening, as it's entirely possible we've made errors in the new version. Please do help to check for any mistakes. The link remains the same as before.
