Competition Details

Cardiff Academy of Fencing, Ocean Way,

Cardiff, CF24 5HF

Sat, 7th December Men's: Foil & Sabre - Women's: Foil
Sun, 8th December Men's: Épée - Women's: Épée & Sabre

Returning for the eighth time, the Oxfam Open is the original charitable fencing open. First run in 2008 and then again in 2009, the competition was sadly off the calendar for a number of years. Since the resurrection of the event in 2013 we have raised over £5000 for Oxfam's various appeals.

This year's event will be taking place on the 7th and 8th December. We are delighted to say that this year's event is again taking place at the Cardiff Academy of Fencing. This fencing-specific venue allows us to offer better changing facilities, more metalic pistes and a finals' hall. There is also plenty of parking at the venue.

As is usual, the six events will be split across the two days of the competition. Men's and Womens Foil along with Men's Sabre will be on the Saturday; Men's and Women's Épée & Women's Sabre will be on the Sunday. Sign in for each weapon will close at the following times:
Saturday 7th December: Men's Foil - 10 AM | Men's Sabre - 11:30 AM | Women's Foil - 1 PM
Sunday 8th December: Men's Épée - 10 AM | Women's Épée - 11:30 AM | Women's Sabre - 1 PM

Oxfam Open 2014 - 21st & 22nd June

Raising money for all of Oxfam's work

After raising over £2000 for Oxfam's Syria Crisis Appeal in 2013, we are happy to announce that the Oxfam Open will be returning in 2014. To avoid the numerous issues and clashes that affected the event last year, we have taken the decision to move the event from December back to its old slot at the end of the season in June. This year's event will, therefore, be taking place on 21st & 22nd June and will once again be at Talybont Sports Centre in Cardiff.

This year, we plan to raise money to support all of Oxfam's great work throughout the world. This means that all the profits will be donated to Oxfam's general fund, to be used as they see fit, as oppossed to a specific appeal.
