We have produced a timetable showing all the regular activities currently on offer at the Centre – click here to view it. The table also allows you to see when the various facilities are available to book. Activities in purple are run by external instructors or clubs and you need to contact them directly to join. Their contact details are on this website by choosing the sport you are interested in here. Activities in green are run directly be the Centre, so contact us to book. Some of these activities are term time only. Alternatively, you can view a list of all the activities currently available and their instructors’ contact details here.

Within the Centre is an area dedicated for the young people of Charlbury to meet, play table tennis, watch sporting action on a large-screen TV or just chill within their own environment.
When not being used as an area for young people, this separate multi-function room, complete with sprung flooring, offers a whole range of different possibilities for activities and classes. This area is available to hire on an ad-hoc or regular basis.
