UKU Junior Women's Indoor Nationals 2019-20

Submitted by Ant on Fri, 13/09/2019 - 8:00am
Event date: 
16 Nov 2019 (All day)
Event details: 





The UKU Under-14, Under-17 and Under-20 Women's Indoor Championships 2019-20 will be held on Saturday 16th November 2019, at Cranford SuperDome in Hounslow. We will have 4 pitches available for the day, giving us plenty of room for teams who wish to enter.


Please note that, due to venue availability, this event will run from early afternoon until the evening. More accurate timings will be released once entries are confirmed, but please account for being on site from 1pm until 8pm as a maximum.

Please note that unlike many other sports, Ultimate tournaments are always played out for position all the way down - so even teams ranked towards the lower end of 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-20 division, you must be born on or after 1st January 2000 (i.e. not turning 20 before the end of the year).
  • 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.

Players playing for UKU-affiliated schools playing as school teams are not required to have membership.

All other players must have minimum Basic Membership of UK Ultimate.

Please contact Joe Wyatt (joewyatt7@gmail.com) 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: joewyatt7@gmail.com 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 NOW OPEN. Click HERE to be taken to the event booking page.


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


We do expect that we will still have a few places remaining after that date so it is certainly worth getting in touch if you have left it late - but those 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 (unlikely, but you never know) 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 timing will mean that the majority of teams might be able to travel on the morning of the event rather than needing accommodation. But for those where this isn't possible, places like www.travelodge.co.uk often have good deals.


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


Team Sizes and Planning

Clubs must ensure that they have appropriate levels of adult supervision in place for the event.

Based on past experience please note that you should not enter a team unless you have at least 8 fit players able to travel, though more than this is recommended.

We also strongly recommend that teams plan to have a non-playing adult travelling with the team. There have been instances where small teams have had an injury, and a second player has had to accompany the injured player to hospital, leaving behind a team that is too small to continue. This not only spoils the tournament for the team concerned, but also for their opposition who have travelled and paid to play games, only to find they have a walkover - not ideal for anyone.

Multiple Teams

Clubs/schools are welcome to enter more than one team. We don't anticipate having to limit the number of teams attending this event, but in the event that the tournament becomes oversubscribed, clubs entering multiple additional teams may find lower ranked teams placed on a waiting list.

UKU/BUCS Indoors Entry Rules

BUCS Regionals (Open/Women - see additional rules for Mixed below)

The closing date and payment date will be as announced by BUCS (to your Uni) and on our UKU event pages. BUCS will NOT accept late entries - no exceptions. It may be possible for us to institute a second round of entries after the first deadline has passed if the tournaments are undersubscribed, but these will be charged (by BUCS) at 20% over the initial price - and we cannot in any way guarantee to make space for teams who have missed the BUCS deadlines. Don't mess this up!


For tournaments that are over-subscribed at the closing date the following rules will apply, in order:

·         First teams will get priority over second teams, and second over third etc.

·         If there is insufficient room for all first teams, places will be awarded in the following order:

o   First teams finishing in the top half of the previous year’s tournament

o   First teams who didn’t enter the previous year’s tournament

o   Remaining first teams in order of their finishing position last year

·         If there are spaces remaining after all first teams have been awarded a space, second teams will be offered places in an order based on finishing position last year, and then third teams and so on

o   Second teams with no finishing position from last year will have a lower priority than those who attended – but still above all third teams (and so on)

If the cut-off happens to fall between 2 or more teams with no finishing position from last year, a lottery will be run between those teams to determine entry.

BUCS Nationals

The closing date and payment date will be as announced by BUCS. Entry is guaranteed for all qualifying teams provided they meet this deadline.

Should any teams fail to take up their spots, the places will be filled by the next-ranked team from one of the qualifying tournaments, with priority among regions determined according to the following (in order):

1.       The region(s) not yet offered an extra place under this process which had the fewest qualification spots originally

2.       The region from which the team dropped out

3.       The strongest regions, i.e.

a.       for Division 1, the region with the highest-ranked relegated team last year – but note that rule 1 means we ignore teams from regions already awarded a dropout-spot.

b.      for Division 2, the region with the highest average finishing position in Division 2 the previous year

c.       for Women’s, the region with the highest average finishing position last year.

4.       A lottery between regions that cannot be separated by the above


Rules will be the same as for BUCS tournaments, with the following additions:

Late entries may be accepted, providing that they improve the schedule for others. We will not allow late entries which make the numbers worse.

·         Single-institution teams at a given level (e.g. 1st, 2nd etc) will have priority entry at regionals over any teams at the same level who have players from more than one institution.

·         UKU reserve the right to move clubs to a blacklist if any of their teams default from any UKU University tournament at late notice.

o   Blacklisted 1st teams will only get into non-BUCS tournaments if there is space for all 1st teams; 2nd/3rd/4th teams from blacklisted clubs will only get a space if the tournament is undersubscribed – i.e. someone else’s 4th team will get in ahead of your 2nd team.
