Entries Now Open - Open & Women's Tour 2 & 3 2017

Entries are now open for UKU Open & Women’s Tour 2 (1st-2nd July) and Tour 3 (15-16 July) through the UKU Event Entry Form.

The cost will be £205 per team and the closing date for both entry and payment for both tournaments is Friday 2nd June. If you miss the deadline, it will be strictly first come first served and you may not get in! 


Women’s Teams

Women’s Tour will be held at Cardiff for Tour 2 and Birmingham for Tour 3. 

Please ensure that you complete the separate entry forms titled:

“UKU Women’s Tour 2 2017 (1-2 July / £205) Cardiff”

“UKU Women’s Tour 3 2017 (15-16 July / £205) Birmingham”  

 

Open Teams 

A-Tour is going to be held in Cardiff and Birmingham, alongside Women’s Tour. In parallel, there will also be two B-Tour events taking place; Cardiff and Salford for Tour 2 and Birmingham and a South-East (venue TBC) for Tour 3. 

To know which teams will be located at each venue, there is an Event Entry Allocation procedure that will be followed. As such, teams will be asked two additional questions on the entry form: 

  1. What is your preferred venue for Tour 2/Tour 3?
  2. Would you play at the other venue if your team is allocated to your non-preferred venue?

It is important to note, that we do not guarantee that all teams will be able to attend their preferred venue and your answer to whether you will or will not play at the other venue will not affect the venue to which your team is allocated.

Additionally, if you are a Top 12 Team [*1] then please be aware of the bid allocation criteria which provides you with a “protected status” to attend the A-Tour venue at all three competitions. This means that if you ranked in the Top 12 overall at the end of the 2016 season, you will be at the Cardiff venue for Tour 2 and the Birmingham venue for Tour 3. 

This also means that if you have more than one team and the venue preferences are different (for example, Team 1 is a top 12 team and is automatically at Cardiff but Team 2 is closer geographically to the Salford and would prefer to go there) then two separate forms should be completed. 

 

 Moreover, when completing the forms, make sure that you are completing those specific to Open Tour. They are titled:  

“UKU Open Tour 2 2017 (1-2 July / £205) Cardiff & Salford”

“UKU Open Tour 3 2017 (15-16 July / £205) Birmingham & South TBA”
