What are we funding?
We are raising money to send our Men’s indoor first team to division one Indoor Nationals. All three men’s teams have recently had a very successful weekend at indoor regionals, with the first team taking the 3rd place spot out of 22 highly competitive teams, therefore qualifying for men’s indoor nationals in February. Due to financial hardship, the club can’t afford to send the team north to Edinburgh without support. The location of both men’s and women’s indoor national’s changes year by year, and this time it is being held in Edinburgh, which has increased transport and accommodation costs. This has been a record breaking year for Swansea University’s men’s teams, smashing their previous best of making division two indoor nationals. This could be a great chance for our players to showcase how advanced they have become, thanks to extensive training on and off the pitch in the lead up to the tournament.
Who are we?
Swansea University Ultimate is a student run sports club at the University which aims to be inclusive to all, as well as highly competitive within the various BUCS leagues we enter, and all of the UK Ultimate tournaments we enter each year. We have been a sports club for over 15 years, and represent Swansea annually at Varsity. Within recent years we have broken several club records, which include a third place finish for the men’s outdoor first team at division two outdoor nationals, and the women’s outdoor team qualifying for division one outdoor nationals. We also have strong development teams, have regular socials and an annual trip to Italy to play beach ultimate. Thanks to the efforts of the students on each year’s committees and all of the players, we have put Swansea and South Wales on the map as a force to be reckoned with, with many of our graduates going on to have success on both the national and international club level.
Why support us?
The men’s 1st team have recently had a record breaking performance at men’s indoor regionals, placing 3rd in the region, and therefore qualifying for division 1 men’s indoor nationals. This has never been achieved by Swansea Ultimate, with our previous best performance making us eligible only for division 2 indoor nationals. Due to financial hardship, the club can’t afford to send the team north to Edinburgh without support, and runs the risk of being faced with a fine for not sending a team. Finances aside, it will be a great chance to further put Swansea on the map as one of the top university teams in the UK, and earn Swansea some more valuable BUCS points. It is also a great chance for our players to showcase how advanced they have become, thanks to extensive training on and off the pitch in the lead up to the tournament. We at Swansea Uni Ultimate are extremely grateful for your help - the smallest donation is the largest kindness.
