BUCS Ultimate Outdoor Championships - Pre-Event Information
The medical team and TDs will also all be in contact all weekend via radio. Upon arrival, please report to the TD Desk to pick up your team pack, containing Spirit Score sheets, and other information.
2. Score Reporting
At this tournament, we will be collecting scores both in person, and via text. We appreciate given the size of the venue that coming back after each game to report scores isn’t viable. However, it is still crucial that you report your scores as soon after each game as possible.
If needs be, please designate one person on your team to be responsible for reporting the match result & Spirit score.
Reporting can be done either in person, or by texting the score to the UKU mobile: 07847 559 228. Please use the below format:
[Your Team] X v X [Their Team] [Rules][Fouls][Fairness][Positivity][Theirs v Ours]
Whilst taxis can be guided to the site through the above map, we appreciate this might be difficult. We have agreed with Powerleague, therefore, that pedestrian access through their site will be allowed. As such, if you wish to direct taxis to Powerleague, Thane Road, Nottingham; this may be easier for you.

BUCS Outdoor Nationals & Alumni Cup 2013
20-21 April, Nottingham Si Hill, Jon Pugh, Dave Halls
A field map will be distributed separately to this pack. Showers and toilet facilities will be available at extreme ends
of the pitches. The TD desk, caterers, physios, and first aiders will be at the marquees. There will be ample marquee
space, and furniture for use in between matches if you so wish; these are all found at the TD desk.
5. Accidents and Emergencies
There will be physios from the Great Britain team on site throughout the weekend, as well as first aiders. They will
be available to treat you for non-emergency incidents. If you require help, please contact the TDs.
Should you require a hospital, the nearest A&E department is 1.5 miles away at the Queens Medical Centre
(Nottingham University Hospitals)- NG7 2UH.
Main switchboard number: 0115 924 9924
Printed maps will be available from the TD Desk should you require one. We are not able to offer the facility of driving players to the hospital, nor sending a volunteer to look after and stay with them.
We will be using fixed water points, as marked on the pitch maps. Due to the importance of keeping you all hydrated, it will be nye-on impossible to chase down containers that have gone missing from these sites; so please
ensure you fill up your drinks there and leave the water containers at the water points.
This will ensure we can be far more efficient in keeping water supplies topped up. Please note, there is also tap water available within the changing facilities; we advise using these before the water butts onsite.
There will be a catering company on site all weekend, selling a range of hot and cold foods, and beverages; including sandwiches and pasta dishes. The caterers will be located by the TD desk and marquee/furniture area.
The nearest shop to the venue is a Co-Op on Clifton Lane, not far from the site (NG11 7AX). In terms of restaurants, Nottingham centre isn’t far at all from the site.
The schedule and pitch maps will be made available separately to this pack. Each team will also be given a copy of both, upon checking in at the TD Desk on Saturday morning.
