Robert Dover’s Cotswold Olimpick Games will once again include the brutal shin-kicking championships in 2022.

Spectators will flock to the annual Cotswold Olimpick Games once again in June 2022, where they can expect weird and wonderful sporting trials such as the famous shin-kicking competition.

Dating back to the early 1600s, the unmissable event will take place in the natural amphitheatre of Chipping Campden’s Dover’s Hill on Friday 3 June 2022.

For competitive kids, there’s the half mile Junior Circuit run; whilst adults will get drenched in the Championship of the Hill race; and there’s a chance to test your strength in the Tug O’War competition; with the shin-kicking always inducing plenty of winces from the crowd!

Robert Dover’s Cotswold Olimpick Games will also feature fireworks, a torchlit procession, bands marching and cannons firing in this unmissable highlight in the Cotswolds calendar.
