Covid-19 Update 12th Jan 2022: Indoor restrictions affecting Ultimate in Scotland

As of the Scottish Government's announcement on 11th January, indoor restrictions in Scotland will remain until at least 24th January. This means the ScCOWIQ events due to take place on 22/23 January in Dundee cannot go ahead as planned. Teams are being contacted directly.

Covid-19 Update 22 Dec - Indoor restrictions affecting Ultimate in Scotland and Wales

In Scotland, for three weeks from 26th December, adult indoor contact sport is not permitted.  In terms of the UKU Phased Return to Play, this means returning to Phase B (affecting indoors only).

In Wales there are general, temporary limits on the size of indoor gatherings (30 people) although today’s announcement was somewhat ambiguous about whether close contact indoor team sport could continue.  Clubs with bookings in this period may need to liaise with their venue until we are able to clarify this point.

Finally we note that we may not provide ongoing, regular updates on changes to Covid-19 restrictions that affect Ultimate between today (22nd December) and New Year.  We will provide an update early in January that summarises the situation at that time.

Provisional UKU Club Competition Structure 2022, 2023 & Beyond

Please see this document for a provisional 2022 outdoor club calendar and proposed structure for 2023 onwards.  Please note that some of the 2022 dates are still provisional, and that we will be looking to work with clubs and organisers to ensure we have a variety of Tier 2 Ranking events as noted in the document.  There will be time during 2022 for players and clubs to provide input and feedback on the proposals for 2023-24.
