To play in Oxfordshire events (regular monthly events i.e.  Senior Pairs, BBO Pairs Ladder or Thursday Teams) or the occasional Sunday events e.g. Harwell Cup, Handicap Pairs or Mixed Pairs) all players must either be Primary Oxfordshire members or Associate Oxfordshire Members. The committee discussed and decided this recently. 

Oxfordshire welcomes players from other counties and at no cost, we ask you to register for Associate Membership.

To check Primary Oxfordshire membership click: NGS ( - you should see OXF by your name.

[Note the County Pairs and Presidents Cup are only open to Primary OBA Members. All Blue Pointed and the Congress are open to all so no associate membership is required for these events]
