Our weekend Tournament is something not just our Club looks forward too, but also many local Clubs who have been attending for many, many years. We're not quite sure when our first Tournament was held, but it was back in the 70s.
To quote just a couple of comments from the many received by the vast majority of managers who attended last year and in previous years:
"The Bluebirds SIXES is one of the best organised and most enjoyable tournaments we've ever attended."
"You would have to look very hard to find a better and more smoothly run Tournament anywhere in the country, let alone Oxfordshire."
The emphasis is very much on enjoyment and respect - for players, parents, supporters and officials alike.
We have twelve pitches and regularly have 140-180 teams entering from throughout Oxfordshire and neighbouring counties, involving a total in excess of 3,000 players, parents and supporters over the two days.
Depending on the number of entries for each age range, teams are organised into appropriate sized groups to ensure the maximum number of matches and a worthwhile amount of playing time for every squad player.
Glenn Hawkins, our Chairman and Tourrnament Co-ordinator, is highly organised and extremely efficient - infamous for his very strict timekeeping. Most teams have been coming year after year because they know their teams will get to "play" rather than having to "hang around".
We have the capacity for 24 teams in each age group and many of the younger teams' groups get filled up extremely quickly.
As well as all the exciting matches, there will be a large slide and bouncy castle for the youngsters (weather permitting), hardest shotk for different ages with prizes and a huge variety of refreshments - including a superb BBQ, delicious ice-creams, home-made cakes, tasty rolls, refreshing drinks and succulent sweets.
OUR RAFFLE - over 30 prizes worth £1000+ on offer
We make every effort to ensure the whole family enjoys their day with us and you might even go home with more than you bargained for - one of the fantastic Raffle Prizes including a £100 first prize - and over 30 other prizes up for grabs - worth a staggering £1200 in total.
This year, for the first time, we are supporting a local charity -
THE AIR AMBULANCE (Berk Oxon Bucks).
Proceeds will be split equally and, with the support of everyone who participates at the tournament, we hope to be able to donate at least £500 to this very worthwhile organisation.

Without them we could not exist as a Club.
We welcome any business/company/individual able to support us in this way.
