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)

Nationals and Regionals Update

All teams and players with interest in competing at or attending Regionals and/or Nationals should read this update.  There is important information including a number of changes. In the interests of clearly communicating the important information this article will focus on the decisions only.  We will look to publish a follow-up discussion to review the arguments and reasoning soon.

Can anyone prevent Black Eagles from taking BOTH the top 2 spots after Mixed Tour 3?

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/BUCS University Men's and Women's Outdoor Nationals 2016-17 - Results and Spirit

Congratulations to all the teams and players for another fantastic BUCS Championships in Nottingham last weekend. The famous Nottingham wind made for very different conditions on Saturday and Sunday, but the standard of play was high throughout.

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.

UKU Mixed Tour 3 - Entries open!

Please see below from Chris and the team in Cheltenham:

UKU Mixed Tour 2 Durham - update

Games will run from approx. 0930-1830 on Saturday, and 0930-1700 on Sunday.
