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.

Covid-19 Update 21st Dec - Indoor Events Jan-Mar 2022

The growing wave of Covid-19 infections, and the increased transmissibility of the Omicron variant may impact the UKU indoor events planned for Jan-Mar 2022.  For the time being we plan to wait to see how the situation develops in terms of both the data and government position on indoor team sports.

We recommend that people who would like to make travel arrangements either delay, or make bookings that can be cancelled and fully refunded.
