Littleport Leisure Centre
The next Cambridgeshire Canine Centre Agility Show is happening here, in Cambridgeshire, on 17th & 18th May 2014. The event is a 2-day event, licensed by UKAgility and is being held at Littleport Leisure Centre, near Ely, Cambridgeshire.
About the show
The schedule for the show can be downloaded from the UKAgility website up until the closing date of 18th April 2014. There will be 5 runs for competing dogs each day – Agility, Jumping, Games & 2 Steeplechase – as well as casual, nursery & junior classes.
For 2014 we have also been awarded 2 qualifiers for the UKA Grand Finals…
Camping is available for the weekend at a rate of £20 and you will have access to the Leisure Centre facilities (inc a bar & showers!)
UKAgility was launched by Greg Derrett and his team back in May 2004 as an alternative competition format to KC Agility. Two progression programmes are offered – performance (incorporating agility, jumping & games classes) and steeplechase. Dogs are able to progress up the two routes completely separately, thus allowing a dog to be champ in steeplechase and beginners in performance (eg), all enabling all dogs to become title champions. Progression through each system is on a points-based system, thus rewarding all qualifying runs in a class, not just the winner each time. There are 4 different jump heights allowing all sizes to catered for equally, as shown below.
There are 4 levels in each programme too and if you are already competing in another organisation, you are able to transfer across to a similar level in UKA, but once competing in UKA, all wins in different organisations do not count.
UKA also offer casual classes for older dogs or those unable to jump their own heights, nursery classes (no weaves or see-saw) for dogs aged 16 months and over to start their agility career (jumps set height below the dog’s correct height) and junior classes to encourage the next generation of agility competitors.
Littleport Leisure Centre is based in Cambridgeshire, approx 5 miles north of Ely. The main entrance to the site is on Camel Road, which can be accessed from the main A10 road (Littleport By-pass).
The centre has facilities that are usable by our agility competitors, including toilets & showers. There is also a bar on-site serving food all day, and a children’s playground.
Please remember that the venue is a public area and keep your dogs & other valuable secure at all times you are at the show. Cambridgeshire Canine Centre takes no responsibility to thefts or losses that occur at the show.
