Entries for the Women's Regionals tournaments will be open through BUCSscore for each of the events as stated above - you CANNOT enter through UKU. You must get the staff at your Athletic Union to enter through the official BUCS site. Make sure that you enter on time and that you're entered into the correct region. 

For any open teams that wish to play at the Open Warm-up tournament in the Women's regions, please complete the UKU Event Entry Form here: https://www.ukultimate.com/webform/event_entry_form. The same entry open and closing dates for the Women's Outdoor Regionals competitions apply to the respective Men's Warm Up tournaments. More details below.

All Women's teams must enter in order to qualify for BUCS Nationals. We expect to run both a Division 1 and a Division 2 at Nationals, so the large majority of teams should be able to attend, but you must attend regionals in order to be eligible for Nationals. Regionals is a required part of the BUCS season, and teams must qualify through it for the National event in April.


If the tournament is oversubscribed the entry procedures will be as described below (UKU/BUCS Entry Rules).



In Scotland, we will also be running the SSS University Open Outdoor Championships alongside the BUCS Women's event. This will not have any impact on BUCS qualification for the boys, but will of course have some nice shiny SSS medals up for grabs as per usual. Teams wishing to enter this event should enter through the UKU Entry Form. It's impossible to say how many teams we can accommodate until we see the Women's entry numbers - we'll confirm after that closing date, and it will be first come first served among all the first teams, then all the second teams, and so on, but make sure you get your entry in if you wish to be considered for a place. Please note: If you are signed up for the SSS Open event as of that closing date (1st Feb) you will be expected to come if offered a place, and will be charged if you pull out. Don't sign up unless you are sure you can come.


Similarly, for any of the other University Men's Warm Up tournaments, we cannot guarantee your place until ALL of the women's entries have been received and confirmed. The number of places available in the warm up tournament will depend on how many women's teams enter, but should you complete the UKU Entry Form for the tournament and be offered a space, you WILL be liable to pay the full team fee. You will be informed of whether you have been offered a place once the closing date for that Regional tournament has passed.


If you have any questions, please email events@ukultimate.com


UKU/BUCS Entry Rules

BUCS Regionals 

The closing date and payment date will be as announced by BUCS. If places remain open after that date, they MAY be filled on a first-pay first-play basis. UKU/BUCS reserve the right to refuse a late entry if it will compromise the tournament for others – for example by adversely affecting the schedule – and to place the team on a waiting list instead.


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.


Which region are we in?

Please note that your region is not necessarily related to where your Men's team plays in the outdoor leagues. We have 7 indoor regions (combined into 4 larger regions for Women's Indoors and Outdoors), which do not tally with the 5 outdoor Men's regions. Check carefully!

This list should now contain all the Unis - if your team is missing please do let us know and we'll update it!

UKU Club Open & Women's Indoor Nationals 2017-18

Submitted by benheywood on Fri, 18/08/2017 - 1:16pm
Event date: 
17 Feb 2018 (All day) - 18 Feb 2018 (All day)
Event details: 

Club Open and Women's Indoor Nationals will be co-located at a huge indoor 3G rubbercrumb venue in Cranford, London on the weekend of 17th-18th February 2018.










Games will start at approximately 10am on Saturday and finish at about 5pm on Sunday.


Entry for this tournament will open on Monday 22nd January until Monday 5th February for both divisions and will cost £135. Teams are required to enter using the UKU Event Entry Form.


For the Open division, only teams that qualified through the Club Open Indoor Regional tournaments are eligible to enter (the list of whom can be found here), however, for the Women’s division there are 16 spaces available. If the Women’s division is oversubscribed at the time of the deadline, the following rules will apply, in order:

  • First teams will NOT get priority over second teams - it is so easy to simply change the name of a 'second team' to avoid such a rule, which would disadvantage those 'proper' clubs who have a real identity.
  • Teams not on the blacklist (for late dropouts at previous events) will get priority over those who are
  • Teams from UKU-Affiliated clubs will be given priority over those who aren't
  • Teams finishing in the top half of the same event in the previous year will be given priority.
  • To fill any remaining spaces at the tournament, the remaining teams who have not already been awarded a place will be selected by random draw.

Places MAY still be available later on a first-come first-served basis if the tournament is under-subscribed, and if the additional team(s) would not adversely affect the schedule, but no team - no matter how strong - would be guaranteed entry; if the tournament is full then the team(s) will be placed on a wait list to be awarded a space should one become available due to a drop out. Although please note that late entries may be charged an additional £30 fine.


 Once the entry deadline has passed, the list of confirmed teams will be published on the UKU website, sent out as one of our Event Newsletters and posted on Britdisc. Please do not expect an individual confirmation email - you need to keep an eye out for the announcement! However, if it’s after the deadline and you’re unsure whether your team has made it and/or you can’t find the information on the above, please email events@ukultimate.com and we will be able to confirm whether or not you have been awarded a space.


Although please note, the payment deadline for ALL teams is also Monday 5th February.

Upon submitting the UKU Event Entry form on behalf of your team, you agree to make payment of the full team entry fee by the stated payment deadline. For any team that does not send payment by the deadline and/or the payment has not been received, their place can be cancelled and awarded to the next team on the wait-list at the discretion of UKU.


If any teams pull out following the specified entry deadline (as above) a penalty will occur:

  • Teams that drop out after the entry deadline date will be liable for 50% of the fees.
  • Teams that drop out in the fortnight prior to the tournament will be liable for the full team fee and will not be refunded.

If you have any questions, please email events@ukultimate.com.

Event details: 

Sublime (Portsmouth University) are hosting our annual indoor tournament, Sublime Warm-up, in November this year at Fareham Leisure centre.

The tournament will start at 9am on Saturday the 4th of November, finishing at 6pm for the day. Recommencing at 9am on the Sunday, 5th of November, finishing at 2pm.

Last year, for the first time, we introduced a women’s division which was a great success. We’ll be doing that again this year. We will have an Open and Women’s division, both welcome to beginners teams.

This tournament falls between University Mixed Indoor regionals, and the University Men’s and Women’s regionals. This event is the perfect occasion for Uni teams to get some team synergy, and vital practise before Men’s and Women’s regionals.

The cost per team, will be £130.

Accommodation will be provided in sublime player’s houses, for both the Friday and Saturday night, if required.

If you’d like to register an interest or sign up, please feel free to email UltimateFrisbee@upsu.net with your name, email you want used for mailing purposes, team name (can be changed), division, and whether you and your team would require accommodation for either the Friday, Saturday, or both. We’ll add you to our mail list, and keep you updated. We anticipate spaces going quickly, so if you're interested, please act quickly.
