With the nation’s fields cleared from snow (and hopefully staying that way despite warnings…), Isabel Goh brings us previews and predictions ahead of this weekend’s Mixed University Mixed Outdoor Nationals in Manchester.

University Men’s Indoor Nationals 2018: Division 1 Preview

news, Open, Previews, University

Welcome to the University Men’s Indoor National preview for Division 1, where our writers have collaborated with me for an insight into their regions. There will be a pool-by-pool preview, and with 20 teams to get through. Let’s get to it!

(Note, since the schedule has the chance for more than one redemption to regain a quarter-final spot, the predictions will be final pool standings and conclude with who I think will win the medals.)

University Men’s Indoor Nationals 2018: Division 2 Preview

news, Open, Previews, University

The new year is a time to reflect on the past, and to look to the future. 2018 brings an end to holiday festivities, the beginning of a new university term, and dozens of teams training rigorously for the chance to triumph at Men’s Indoor Nationals. This year everyone is once again gathered in the cold, unforgiving climate of Scotland’s Ravenscraig Sports Centre.

Here at Nationals, every division holds prestige. Arguably, none more so than Division 2 Men’s – filled with teams who’ve journeyed with nothing to fight for except honour, and who are determined to send a message to those Division 1 teams that they’re coming for them.

UK University Ultimate 2017/18: Women’s Indoor Nationals Preview

This year, University Women’s Indoor Nationals will be held in far distant Glasgow. Though extensive coverage will be taking place on the weekend itself, here is a sneak peek of what might go down on the fields of Ravenscraig this weekend.



Teams competing: Hertfordshire, Imperial, KCL, Oxford, UCL

The East region teams have to make a very long trek to Glasgow, but they will be bringing their a-game against any team who thinks that the distance puts them at a disadvantage. Hertfordshire, Imperial, KCL, Oxford and UCL (who qualified in that order) are all formidable teams with their own strengths and may be aiming to bring home some silverware, especially since last year’s National Champs Chichester didn’t even field a team for Regionals this year.

With a dominant showing by their women at Mixed Indoor Nationals, I’ll put my bets on Hertfordshire finishing the highest of the East region teams, with the highest possibility of  making the top three. Their women are tall, athletic, physical, and willing to put their body on the line for any disc. Keep an eye out for Ola Kulikowska (Uprising) and Cat Gale (GB U17 & U20 Coach) in particular.

November draws to a close, the nights draw in, Michael Bublé re-emerges from hibernation for another round of Christmas cover versions, and UK Ultimate prepares to crown its first National Champion of the academic year. It’s Mixed Indoor Nationals time, and the best of the best are ready to descend on Coventry. Grab your cocoa, wrap up warm, we’re going back to the Alan Higgs centre, and we won’t be going home until we find a winner. Let’s meet the teams.

Becky Greenwood talks us through the West region.

It’s that time of the year again, that we’ve all been waiting for! Women’s Indoor Regionals is just around the corner, and it’s time for the western women to shine and show their talent, teamwork and improvement. There are fourteen teams entering this year, and though some teams have lost players to graduation, all have new fresh talent ready to pounce and surprise. This year is set to be an intense one as every team pushes for a Nationals spot, ready to exceed expectations and have a lot of fun along the way!
