UDUK currently has no plans to provide any accommodation directly on or off site. We recommend that you look into booking as early as possible to ensure best value for money if your plan is to stay in the area overnight.
We ask that where possible please take a test the day before traveling and if positive then do not come. This whilst not a requirement as we will not be checking is for everyone’s safety.
Please note that scottish hospitality covid regulations are subject to change on short notice so please be prepared to adapt as needed.
We will be complying with all local/national regulations at the event. At current this does not limit our plans but should this change further announcements will be made.
Pre and post game handshakes whilst recommended are not required if you would prefer to avoid contact. Just politely let your opponents know.
However we do ask you respect the spirit of the handshake. by saying “good luck” or “well played” etc… and give a friendly thumbs up.
