WMUCC Qualification

Thank you to all of the teams that confirmed their interest in WMUCC qualification!

 

As we don’t yet know the number of bids we’ll receive in any division, or even if all of the divisions are going ahead, we are proceeding on the assumption that we’ll receive at least one bid in each. 

 

We have also determined that with the continuing uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we will continue to use smaller fixture dates where possible. As such, this means that we have scheduled WMUCC qualification in line with how the Challenge League & National Series fixtures have been managed so far. For the majority of the divisions, we only have a small number of teams interested so these teams will be expected to play each other on a single fixture day. However, for the Master Mixed division, due to the high number of teams interested, each team will be required to play on two different fixture dates so that all of the games can be played. The full details of what this looks like in practice can be seen in the WMUCC qualification document linked to below.

 

UKU Indoor Events Provisional Calendar 2021-22 (Junior, University & Club)

Following the continued easing of restrictions across the UK, we are releasing our provisional calendar for the 2021-22 indoor events so that your clubs can start to tentatively plan your season. 

 

However, we feel that it’s important to highlight that we remain extremely cautious about the feasibility of these events going ahead due to the uncertainty that remains around COVID-19. Whilst we have listed the dates for the indoor season below, there are still some events that do not have venues yet, and where we have managed to source venues, the bookings remain provisional where possible. It is also conceivable that we may need to change the way that our indoor tournaments are run to ensure that COVID-19 risks are considered and venue requirements met. 

Calling all UKU members, have your say on membership!

A student research project examining niche sports organisation membership is being undertaken by a postgraduate student at the University of Reading. The purpose of this study is to gain information around the demographics of UKU members and their thoughts on the current membership system. The study aims to create a framework to maximise benefits to both niche sports organisations and their members.

 

The main investigator is asking that members of UKU, both past and present, complete a short anonymous survey in order to assist in this research. The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete. You must be over the age of 16 and have the capacity to fully understand and consent to this research. Participating in this study will in no way impact your membership to UKU and you do not need to be a current member of UKU to complete the survey, as long as you have had UKU membership at one point.
