UKU Club Mixed Indoor Nationals - Results & Spirit #CXIN
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.
The whole event was played in an excellent spirit, and all teams appeared to have a great time. Apart from just one or two teams choosing to ignore the MANY signs and the very clear info about not warming up or throwing in corridors, in general everyone behaved very well and kept out of the way of the cyclists, and we're very hopeful that we'll be able to run many more events at this excellent location.
We also used for the first time the new 2017 WFDF gender-ratio rules, where whichever team is defending a particular endzone chooses the ratio (as opposed to the old 'offence chooses' system). Feedback on this change was uniformly excellent, with all agreeing that it was tactically more interesting and that points with 3 women / 2 men were considerably more frequent than in the past - which was of course the idea.
Thanks to all the teams, to Morgan for manning the TD desk, to Five Ultimate Europe for providing the swaggy merchandise that so many of you purchased as well as numerous prizes and giveaways, and to the venue for a fantastic weekend all round.
