The Commonwealth Games format will be utilised in all rounds of all events, excluding inter-county fixtures. This will provide greater flexibility for match arrangements in the qualifying stages and enable the national finals to take place over a shorter period.

Only one qualifier (the winner) for each event will represent Oxfordshire in the national finals in 2021.
