FOWC 2024

In November 2023, Cambridgeshire Flyball Team were selected as one of the 5 teams to represent TeamGB at the Flyball Open World Cup, to be held in Germany in May 2024. In December, the UK were asked if they wished to field a further set of teams and we really hoped to be able to take a second team, but the rulings on docked tails outside of the UK means e were unable to take our amazing cocker spaniels, and therefore we had to decline.  However, to say we are excited for our Canines team, and proud is an understatement!

We will join our fellow UK teams of Essex Flyball, Tails We Win, Aces, TimeFlyZ, Game of Bones, Reiver Rebels and Fylde Coasters. Together these 10 teams will become Flyball TeamGB – and what a great selection of teams it is, with over half the teams able to consistently run sub-15s!

Cambridgeshire FOWC Squad

Bearing in mind, the world cup is still 5 months away, and that we have a lot of amazing up-and-coming talent in our team, who knows which dog-combination will be best for us next May. With the fact that dogs require their rabies vaccinations ahead of the time we need to finalise our team, we decided to put together a squad of 9 dogs (it worked so well for us back in 2022). The Cambridgeshire Canines final team of 6 will be selected from these 9.

Fundraising & Sponsorship

Obviously, planning on taking 9 dogs, plus their handlers and support crew to such a prestigious event, and being 100% prepared for it, costs a lot of money!

We have set ourselves a target of raising £5,000 to enable us to be the best we possibly can come next May.

We currently have a few ideas to raise some much-needed funds – hosting a series of UKFL fun events; some special flyball training days; as well as a tombola and hopefully a fun quiz. However, we are also very grateful to the help, support and sponsorship offered to us by external companies.

For any friends and family that would like to donate to help us we have set up a Go Fund Me fundraiser. Our aim is to fundraise everything that we need but if you wish to donate we won’t say no and will be very grateful.
