Spring League entry deadline extended to 6th May. Go here to submit your entry!
Hopefully everyone is already aware, but this is open to all, and we're expecting both beginner and experienced players to sign up. Our goal is to get the experienced players to have a bit of fun and help get new blood in to the sport, while allowing the beginners to have a nice relaxed introduction to Ultimate.

The clocks have changed, Britain is starting to warm up and Summer League is just over a month off, so it's time to think how you're going to spend those long glorious evenings. In case you haven't realised it by now, we're mixing things up a little this Summer League to try to welcome more people into the Ultimate community. We're adding two new venues, Richmond and West Ham (don't worry - you'll only play at them if you specifically ask to), and we're splitting the league into two entirely separate parts. The first four weeks will be devoted to getting new people into Summer League by running a joint 5-on-5 Corporate and hat team tournament which we're going to call, for want of a better title, Spring League. The remainder will be the traditional Summer League with crossovers and eight team divisions.
By the time you read this, you should already be able to enter here. You can enter the Spring League either as an individual or as a corporate team and you've got until April 30th. For the main Summer League tournament you enter as a team and you've got till Saturday 25th May to get those entries submitted.

It's time to clear away the news from last year and start getting going with London Summer League 2013. I know what you're thinking: it's only February, and outside the temperature is below zero. Well you're right, but while you've been laying out on frozen pitches, we've been planning what's going to happen when the sun finally shows itself again.
So, what do you need to know? Well the biggest thing is that we're splitting Summer League into two separate competitions. The first four weeks will be devoted to beginner friendly events. We've not finalised exactly wht that means yet, but we're considering running a small hat league, and possibly a beginner and corporate series too. We're hoping that we'll be able to attract attention across London, so we're looking at opening up venues in the East and West of the city depending upon interest.
A month later though, we're going to be returning to the tried and trusted league format, hopefully with a few new players (and maybe teams!) gathered up along the way. Those of you who are fretting about location needn't worry: we're almost certainly sticking to Balham and Clissold for the main league. To make room for all that though, we're sadly going to have say goodbye to the Cup, but hopefully the hat league will fill some of the hole left by that (not to mention provide us with an extra excuse for a party!).
Anything else? Yes! First hat games take place on 15th May, League proper starts on Weds 12th June and the parties take place on Thursday 6th June and Thursday 15th August, most likely down in Balham.
