European Transplant and Dialysis Sports Games 2022

21st - 28th August 2022

The European Transplant and Dialysis Games, a week of multi-sport competition amongst solid organ transplant recipients and kidney dialysis patients from over 25 countries across Europe, will take place in Oxford and the surrounding area in August. We're delighted to be welcoming participants for the cycling, 5km mini marathon and petanque events

With over 400 competitors, the event is a major opportunity to promote the huge benefits of organ donation and amazing life-saving impact of organ transplantation. The aim of the Games is to help transplant recipients and dialysis patients re-engage socially, and provide an invaluable goal for the next 12 months.

The Games are being organised by Transplant Sport and will open on Sunday 21st August 2022 with a parade through Oxford city centre before the opening ceremony at The Sheldonian Theatre.

First staged in Athens in 2000, the event has subsequently been held bi-annually in nine different European countries. We’re excited to be involved in hosting The Games this year, the first time they have come to the United Kingdom.
