Event details: 







The UKU Under-17 and Under-14 Open Indoor Championships 2019/20 will be held over the weekend of Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd February 2020, at the same venue as the last few years - Aldersley Leisure Village in Wolverhampton. We will have ALL 4 pitches in the main sports hall (hardcourt surface; indoor trainers required), so this should give us plenty of room for all who wish to enter!


Games will start at approximately 10am on the Saturday and we will aim for games to be finished at 5pm on the Sunday, followed by a short presentation/award ceremony.


Please note that unlike many other sports, Ultimate tournaments are always played out for position all the way down - so even teams ranked e.g. 17th-24th in their division will still play a Quarter, Semi and Final in their bracket. Even the most inexperienced team will still expect to play the same number of games as the winners - you don't get knocked out early at these events! Come and join in the fun.



There is no qualifying round, and no 'minimum standard' that your team must meet - there will certainly be teams of beginners participating. If you are a newly formed school team, you are very, very much invited!


To be eligible for the UKU Under-17 division you must be in Year 11 or below (the rules for UK Domestic competition differ slightly to International competition).

To be eligible for the UKU Under-14 division you must be in Year 8 or below.


As the tournament is Open, there are no gender restrictions - all-male teams, or all-female teams, or anything in between, are absolutely fine.

Please contact Joe Wyatt ( if there are any queries.


If you are a player or a small group of players without enough for a full team, then it may be possible to arrange for you to join up with another team; everyone involved in Junior Ultimate wants you there. HOWEVER you must explain your situation to the Junior Forum (email to: is sufficient) and have them ratify which is the most appropriate team for you to join with.

Please also note that eligibilty decisions are made by volunteers - we're keen to help out, but do make sure to get your requests in early to make that easier.



Entry for this event is via the GoMembership event HERE.


The team fee for this event is £95.


After the entry deadline we will post the list of confirmed teams on both our website and the Schools Newsletter.


It is very possible that this event will be filled following the closing date for entries (we hope to be able to accommodate all entries made by the closing date). Any remaining spaces will be awarded on a first come first served basis and it can't be guaranteed that you'll be awarded a spot, so ideally make sure that you enter before the deadline!


If the tournament is oversubscribed at the closing date, we will prioritise first teams from each institution, and then second teams above third teams etc all the way down. If the cut-off happens to fall between teams at the same level (e.g. 4th teams from two institutions) then priority will go to whoever entered on the earliest date (or be decided by the drawing of lots if we can't separate them by date). Once the initial deadline has passed, places are confirmed, and the entry of a new first team will not 'bump' someone's 7th team anymore - it's literally first come first served at that stage for any remaining places.



Hopefully the central location will mean that some teams might be able to travel home rather than needing accommodation on the Saturday night, but for some of you that clearly won't be possible. Places like (and there are a number around the motorways or Wolverhampton!) often have good deals, and there are a smattering of Youth Hostels nearby (


If you are really struggling for accommodation, please get in touch on and we will do what we can to assist with suggestions, but we do not offer accommodation as part of the tournament.


Other Info

Essential: Do not enter a team unless you have AT LEAST 7 fit players who are able to travel.
