UKU Club Open Indoor Qualifiers - Additional Event Update

As per our previous announcements regarding the oversubscribed COIQ events, we have been exploring options to put on additional COIQ events in order to give the teams who wished to play, but didn’t originally receive a spot at an event, the chance to do so.

We are pleased to be able to announce that:

  1. We now have the capacity for an additional 7 teams at the COIQ Plymouth event, taking place at Marjon Sports Centre on 22nd/23rd January.

  2. If there is sufficient interest, we have the capacity to run an additional COIQ event for up to 16 teams on Sunday 9th January at Cranford Superdome. This is because, following the entries closing for CXIQ, we now know that we have the option to run a one day tournament for all the teams that entered the CXIQ Cranford event on Saturday January 8th. We will confirm the tournament format (i,e if there will be a COIQ event or if CXIQ will be a two day tournament) at Cranford Superdome by the end of next week. 

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Survey 2021

We would like to have a better understanding of the demographic profile of the people who participate in Ultimate in the UK, and so we are running this survey during December to help us gather the data.  The goal is to provide a benchmark against which we can set up and monitor action plans to promote improved diversity and inclusion within the sport.

Please complete this survey if you have participated (played/coached/volunteered) in Ultimate in the UK during 2021, regardless of whether you were a UKU member.  It should take less than two minutes.  Please share the link with other people you think may be interested.

UK Ultimate AGM Postponed

Unfortunately due to personal circumstances of some of the key personnel involved we've been forced to postpone our AGM, which had been due to take place on Thursday 9th December. 

 

Once the details of the rearranged AGM have been finalised we will announce them via our usual channels and reopen registration for all UKU Members.

COWIQ Update 1st December - Draft Schedules for this weekend and Waitlist Update

Please see below for draft schedule and info for the Club Qualifier events this weekend (4-5 Dec).

 

Update for WAITLIST teams in the OPEN DIVISION

We are hopeful of adding another event on the weekend of 22-23 January in the Northampton area, but we won’t have a final decision from the venue until the end of this week at the earliest.  Additionally, we are also able to add up to 8 more bids at the Marjon event in Plymouth.  The extra bids in Marjon will be made available AFTER we know about the Northampton option, so that teams can make an informed decision about what would work best for them.  Please look out for further announcements, which will have a short turnaround time and require a quick response from teams.  Thanks for your patience.
