Rover Oxford Festival

The Rover Oxford Hockey Festival is a huge annual event organised by Oxford Hockey Club Juniors.

The 26th festival will be on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th April 2018 at Cokethorpe School.

The name comes from the fact that Rover Oxford Hockey Club (now part of Oxford Hockey Club, following their merger with City of Oxford H.C. in 2011) started the festival in 1993.  It started at the Dragon School, then moved Tilsley Park before moving to the magnificent grounds of Cokethorpe School in 2007.

The festival is  held during the Easter holidays, for Under 8, Under 10, Under 12 and Under 14 age groups. The typical format is 7-a-side games on half a pitch for all age groups.  The festival attracts teams from all over the country and has a special link with Banbridge Academy from Northern Ireland who have entered every year since 1998.  The festival attracts over 500 children over two days of competition and is believed to be one of the largest in the UK.
