UKU Beach Nationals 2021 - Confirmed Team Lists

We are pleased to confirm the team lists for Beach Nationals happening on 2nd-3rd October at Sandbanks Beach, Bournemouth.

UKU 2021 Season Feedback - Share your opinion!

Following a pretty successful 2021 season, albeit after a bit of an uncertain start, we wanted to reach out to you to get feedback from everyone that’s taken part (or not), at all levels, to see what we might do for the 2021-22 season!

 

Don’t worry, we’re never going to completely get rid of the weekend events that we know you love (we love them too!), but we want to find a balance for moving forward. 

 

Let us know what you think. We want to hear from you!

Did you play in 2021?

Did you not play at all? 

Did you want to play but the format didn’t work for you?

Did you play more because the format worked better for you?

Did you find the use of single fixture days beneficial and/or enjoyable? 

Did you miss weekend events?

 

Whatever your opinions are, we genuinely want to know them. If we don’t hear from you, whether it’s positive or negative, we end up with only having the views of a small proportion of players to work with. This might mean that we change the competition format and it might not be in the direction that you want it to be, so get involved!

 

Here are the different ways you can get in touch and share your views...

To All University Students: Welcome Back!

UKU Junior Mixed Outdoor Nationals 2021 - It's going ahead! Entries now open.

We are excited to confirm that Junior Mixed Outdoor Nationals 2021 will go ahead following confirmation from the venue and interest from a number of teams!

 

The event is being held at Malmesbury Secondary School, Wiltshire (SN16 0DF) on Saturday 9th October. It is a ONE DAY event. 

 

Entries are open in all three divisions: Under-14, Under-17and Under-20. Unfortunately, we cannot confirm that all three divisions will definitely go ahead as it depends on the level of entries we receive, but we hope to receive enough interest to run at least one division and we will confirm this once entries close.

 

All teams must be mixed gender and able to conform to the required gender split throughout the tournament. Please ensure that you have sufficient players of both genders available before making your entry. Single gender schools interested in attending should contact us on events@ukultimate.com, so that we can try to match you to a suitable school of the opposite gender to enter a combined team.

 

The event deadline is Thursday 23rd September at 12 noon.

Outstanding National Series Fees

 

Have you played in the National Cup or the National League this year? If so, please make sure that your team has paid your National Series game fees. 

 

Thank you to the majority of you that have paid so far! That small fee that you have paid is genuinely valuable and helps to cover the work that we’ve done this year to get the competition series up and running.

UKU Beach Nationals 2021 - It could be happening! Sign up NOW.

With support from Bournemouth University, we are hopeful that we’ll be able to run Beach Nationals this year! We understand that it's a bit last minute, but we thought we would take the opportunity to try and put the event on if there is enough interest for it to go ahead. 

 

At the moment, we have to highlight that this is still provisional. However, discussions are underway and the paperwork is currently being processed for us to make an event booking. So to get things moving and to give teams as much notice as possible if we're able to make it happen…
