#stillgame



Back in 2020, Mexican Horse Bandits rode away with the inaugural crown of UK Indoor Masters Champions! Building on the success of that tournament (after a covid-related hiatus in 2021) we are returning to Sheffield for the 2022 edition! 

 

We welcome entries from Open, Mixed and Women's teams. Based on interest received so far, but also allowing for potential Covid restrictions, it is likely that this will be a single day event for Open/Women's and a single day event for Mixed. The entry fee of £100 is based on this likely schedule, with space to accommodate 8 Open teams, 4 Women's teams and 8 Mixed teams. You are allowed to play in more than one division, but not on the same day. If your team would like to play both days, entering Open and Mixed, for example, that is fine but you will have to enter each division and pay two fees. Equally, an open and a women's team could combine to enter a mixed team on the second day. 

 

If this scheduling plan has to change, teams will be contacted to discuss options prior to any changes/decisions being announced.

UKU Membership

Players are required to have at least basic UKU membership, but as this is a UK Ultimate National level event, we'd encourage all players to have full UKU membership. You can register and update your membership here:

The venue

All Saints Sports Centre is a double sports hall facility capable of hosting a variety of sports. It is home to the Abbey Flyers Trampolining Club, Sheffield Volleyball Club and the City of Sheffield Hatters Basketball Club. Located next to Norfolk Park, the sports centre shares a car park and facilities with Goals Soccer Centre. It's just a short walk from the 'Granville Rd - Sheffield College' tram stop, and approximately 15 / 20 minute walk from the main rail station / city centre.

 

We will be utilising the main hall throughout the weekend, housing one pitch and including bleacher seating to watch the action and to provide space for teams. This will also provide space for small warm-ups and spirit circles. We also have use to the seminar room (just inside the main entrance) which all are welcome to use but priority should go to those with small children who may need to be away from the action and noise of the hall. Post-game calls and spirit circles should be kept to the main hall please, and not in the corridors/reception.

 

Players have access to use the Goals Lounge and bar area all weekend (at the time of writing we are not aware of any party bookings). They do serve food and drink in the Goals Lounge, though the options are fairly limited. There are other options, including ASDA supermarket, a short walk or drive away.

 

The surface is wooden sports floor, so wear non-marking indoor shoes please.

Spirit of the Game

All teams are required to complete SOTG scores, following WFDF guidelines, for each match. There will be a computer at the TD desk with a simple form to complete (tbc). Please try and submit scores regularly throughout the day so we are not waiting at the end for a large number of scores to be entered.


Accommodation

No accommodation is provided to teams so please consider this before entering. The tournament venue is close to the city centre and there is a wealth of hotel, b&b or AirBnB options available.


Eligibility and team entry

This is a masters age event, therefore males must be 33+ and females 30+. You are eligible if you hit that age at any point during 2022. Players are required to have at least basic UKU membership, but as this is a UK Ultimate National level event, we'd encourage all players to have full UKU membership. If players already have basic membership, they can just get temporary membership for the weekend. Full information at www.ukultimate.com/join.

 

Entry will be through the UKU GoMembership website in the 'Events & Courses' section: ukultimate.azolve.com - search for 'Indoor Masters'. Entry will be open throughout January 2022, closing on Sunday 13th February 2022. After the entry period is closed, if oversubscribed, teams will be awarded a spot at the event as outlined in the UKU Terms & Conditions of Tournament Entry. Teams that are not successful in being awarded a spot at the event will be refunded.
