Statement from UK Agility:
In 2020 UK Agility will be amalgamating its systems with its North American business (UK Agility International). This has become necessary due to the growth on the other side of the Atlantic and the need to simplify the business with greater commonality. As a consequence UK Agility will be switching to its own online entry and scoring system.
Over the next few months we will be moving our registration and show entry from Agility Plaza to the UK Agility web page. Our current aim is that all shows from the 20th March will run on the new UK Agility system. We will be posting more updates over the next few weeks to keep all our members informed of the changes.
Together UK Agility and Agility Plaza have transformed the face of agility in the UK. Whilst our paths are diverging, the collaboration continues and details of our shows, results and other relevant information will continue to be available on their website.
Statement from Agility Plaza:
In 2020 UK Agility will be moving to the online entry and scoring system shared with its North American business (UK Agility International). This means that from 1st March you will no longer be able to enter UKA shows on Plaza or update your membership. However we will be entering into a publishing agreement with UKA so that Plaza can continue to display results and most of the information currently available.
Whilst it is sad to see UKA moving on, it leaves us free to focus on our core Kennel Club business. In 2019 Agility Plaza became the UK’s biggest show processor and for 2020 we have lots of exciting new shows coming on board.
2020 will be a significant year for e-gility too with the launch of our new 3rd generation “fault tolerant” network. We are so confident in its reliability that we are the first paperless provider to offer show organisers a full money back guarantee. With more and more shows going paperless, e-gility offers complete peace of mind from technology anxiety. ... See MoreSee Less
Disappointed as I think agility plaza is so easy to use, we have enough systems in our lives without yet another one; why fix it when it ain’t broken!!
It hasn't been that long since UK Agility started using Agility Plaza. Don't think this system is that complicated and it was "nearly all" in one place. I agree with earlier comments, yet another processor to deal with. I would find it more understandable if we were travelling between two continents to compete, more likely we will go to mainland Europe, but then again it might be the "B" word causing an issue. I kind of hoped that more shows would be using Plaza for it is very efficient
Sounds like a positive step. Uka always leads the way and we’ll look forward to seeing the new system unfold.
Such a shame, agility plaza worked so well.
Thank you all for commenting. For those that have posted negatively to our decision please be assured it is one we did not take lightly but one that needed to be taken. We would also ask you to be patient and see the outcome and the new benefits this system will bring to all UKA competitors.
Will our personal account details be retained, including previous results for each dog?
That's ashame moving away from Agility Plaza. It was good entering almost all shows in one place
We only go to one UKA show a year and that costs an arm and a leg. It would be nice to have some locally. It's going to take ages to get Jilly up to senior.
Oh my goodness it wasn’t long ago you moved to agility plaza
That's actually a real pain. So that's at least 4 show processors to use and register with. Very easy to miss closing dates.
I think we have been spoiled just having ISS as a show processor, and while I don’t like it either, I think we’re going to have to get used to using several different processors.
Oh no. Just got used to agility plaza and found it very easy to use. Technophobe here NOT looking forward to learning yet another new system..... and having yet another flippin password to remember !!
Am trying to keep up. !!! 😄
Here we go again...
More US Agility now then than UK.....
What will be the live show format info be like it was nice and clear on plaza, and I had just getting the hang of it🙁
What a shame as Agility Plaza meant you could enter uka and more recently some KC shows. Have to put money with yet another format now? Do hope not.
Agility plaza was only system I really understand and really liked it was so easy...now what?...why can't be all in one system?Lots of shows we miss as they're not seen on one website...there is like 4of them .. and I really used mostly agility plaza as it is easiest...not happy ...
Hey ho !!!

That's a shame! Love Agility Plaza! So easy to enter shows, live results and live class running orders at shows and easy to update accounts. Disappointing that your moving away from such a great system! 😥

Unfortunately, despite an extended deadline, Broadlands UKA show has been unable to secure a venue for their show in 2020. This means that the heats that they were allocated have been moved to another show.
We are pleased to announce that Lydiard will be taking on these show dates (17th -19th April) in addition to their current show. The dates of the heats will remain the same (CSJ Grand Prix (18th April) & DOG StreamZ Split Pairs (19th April). Lydiard will now be running Friday to Sunday on consecutive weekends. Please follow the UKA Lydiard 2020 FB page for updates with the possibilities of mid-week competitions and training days to be announced.
We would like to say thank you to Broadlands for all their hard work in the past and hope that they will be back in the future. ... See MoreSee Less
Shame about Broadlands. Look forward to lydiard though. Happy to judge Friday if they need
Sorry to hear this, hope you’ll find the perfect permanent venue for next year.
Gutted.. my favourite UKA show! 😢
That’s a shame, I’m presuming they can’t use the same venue as before, although Kelluki are having their Easter Show there.
Loss of Broadlands is a blow, great show. Hope they won't give up & will be back next year
Oh no I love broadlands as nearest show for me too😞
So sad to hear this news always been a succesful show for us and have always enjoyed the friendliness of everyone at Broadlands. Hope this is just a blip
Don’t know if it’s too far south....Canford Magna Arena is huge ,don’t know if it’s suitable for a show but certainly fine for camping and cars ? Bear cross nr. Bournemouth 🤔
Gutted love Broadland
That’s such a shame not only for the competitors but the show organisers/management as well
Oh nooooo - one of my favourite shows of the year 😞
Avon Riding centre in Bristol has huge indoor arena thats hired out for future ref.

For any UKA judges who are not on the UKA judges page - The UKA Judging Approval (which you get by passing the assessment) only last for five years. Those of you that completed this in 2014, you need to redo it successfully before the end of December this year to remain on the Approved judging list.
If you can't remember when you did it then have a look at the approved judges list on the UKA website and it will tell you. The judging assessment is also available to download from there. ... See MoreSee Less
