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.

Over £2000 Raised

Oxfam receives in excess of £4000 thanks to UK Government Scheme

We just wanted to let everyone know that we have now dealt with most of the expenses of the event and we have raised over £2000 for Oxfam. What is more, thanks to a UK Government scheme to double donnations to the Syria Crisis Appeal, more than £4000 has been donated to Oxfam. We will let you know the exact figure once a few final costs have been covered. Thank you for your support

Change of Days

Avoiding clashes with the Hereford and Worcester Open

We realise that the Hereford and Worcester Open has become a staple in many people’s season; unfortunately the organisers of this event have announced that their competition will take place on the same weekend that we had previously advertised.

In order to avoid clashing with the Hereford and Worcester and also avoid moving the date (again) we have decided to rearrange the weekend somewhat. We will now be running our events on the opposite days to the Hereford and Worcester this means the schedule for the weekend is now:


Change of Date

New date 14th & 15th December 2013

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, we have had to change the date of this year's event. The competition will now take place on the weekend of the 14/15thDecember. All other details, including the venue and the schedule for the weekend remain the same.

We have taken this decision as early as we possibly could to cause minimum inconvenience to people. We do however understand that the new date may pose a problem to some people. If you have already registered and are now unable to do the new date please let us know, via the contact form.

We would like to apologise for this and hope everyone will continue to support the event.
