UKU Member Update
Following the call for volunteers to fill positions on the competitions committee we're please to annouce Dan Godbold has joined the committee as our new mixed coordinator.
The role of the UKU Competitions Committee is to manage the structure and rules for all UKU competitions. We still have several vacancies in the committee at the moment - but in particular Lauren Bryant, who represents the Women's division is stepping down. We would like to thank Lauren for all the time, energy and expertise she has given to the role for the last few years.
If you would like to join the committee in any of the vacant positions (Women's, Junior and Beach) please use the website to contact us or email firstname.lastname@example.org outlining the role you would like to stand for, and some information about your background and interest in the position.
Happy International Women’s Day!
Here at the UKU Women’s Committee we’ve been working hard to create and promote ways to get more women playing. Today we are launching a project designed to do just this, introducing...
The UKU Women's Find A Team initiative!
This is a new initiative by the UKU to match players to women's teams, or to match players with each other to form new club teams. The aim is to promote the development of Women’s Ultimate in the UK and raise awareness of playing opportunities available across the country.
We are pleased to announce the DRAFT schedule for this weekend's Mixed Tour 1 in Cardiff. As ever, it's a draft initially so that a hundred pairs of eyes can help spot any issues - but hopefully it shouldn't be too far off given that it's practically identical to last year! Don't book your transport based on this until tomorrow - we'll hopefully spot any issues by the end of today.
A reminder to all players playing this weekend that you must have full UKU membership. You can purchase that online here.
Last week Crystal Palace National Sports Centre hosted the London Youth Games. As part of their Fanfest event over 100 Primary school children got to try playing Ultimate. Even though it was a windy day all came away with basic skills and had loads of questions about playing more when they got back to school! Hopefully it won’t be too long before Ultimate is included in the Youth Games themselves!
UK Masters Nationals will be held on September 9th. This is the qualification route to World Masters Ultimate Club Championships 2018.
The venue will be confirmed in a future update.
