The Summertown Stars annual five-a-side tournament is set to take place at Cutteslowe Park on June 15 and 16 with football fun for all ages and abilities.

An over 50s walking football event and matches for those with a disability means everyone will have the chance to enjoy the day. 

This year will mark 50 years of the event – which is now the biggest football tournament in Oxfordshire with 400 teams taking part. 

Organiser Jim Ruddick said: “We expect approximately 5000 people to attend over the weekend!”

“We have 837 players in 61 teams including one disability team, and girls and mixed teams, all volunteer led, for the community and the love of grassroots football.

“It’s also our 50th Anniversary and we’re really excited about that, and are looking forward to celebrating at our awards night and Party in the Park the following week.”

The competition is held each year at the Stars’ home ground in Summertown next to the refurbished pavilion, and features refreshments, home-made cakes and BBQ area with vegetarian options. 

The milestone competition will be followed later this year, on September 14, by the club’s 50th anniversary gala dinner at the Leonard Hotel.
