Teams urged to sign up for the Total Wipeout challenge

Daniel Bell tests the Total Wipeout obstacles as Anne Buchanan looks on. The charity event is coming to a Cancer Research UK fund-raising day in June at Omagh Rugby Club.

IF YOU ever fancied taking on the famous big red balls, well now is your chance as a Total Wipeout challenge is coming to Omagh for the first time.

Based on the hit TV show, the charity event hosted by the Omagh Branch of Cancer Research UK will take place in the grounds of
Omagh Accies Rugby Club on June 17.


Vena Jameson on behalf of the group is appealing for sporting clubs, businesses or groups of friends to sign up for what should be a great days fun, bouncing around the obstacles and raising money for a great cause in the process.

The Total Wipeout event is open to teams of ten with each team asked to raise £500 for the charity or £50 each.

This will be a professionally run event with experts from Derry bringing the extensive range of games to Omagh for the day.

Vena said, “This is the first time we have organised an event like this. In fact the company has told us this is the first time they have ever been to Omagh so hopefully this will generate a lot of interest.

“It is an innovative, teambuilding and group bonding challenge, but most of all it will be lots and lots of fun. We had some of the games for the launch evening at the rugby club on Tuesday evening past and everyone who had a go, really enjoyed it. It was lots of fun.

“On the day there will be a boxing wall, the four big red balls, an ultimate wipeout course, demolition wall, obstacle course and last one standing.”


Vena is encouraging anyone interested to get in contact as soon as possible to register their team and get a sponsor sheet.

Depending on interest, Vena hopes there will be a morning session from 10am-1pm and an afternoon session from 2-5pm.
