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.
Now that the footballers and cricket players have gone outside, we have some prime slots available that were not before. For example you can hire:
Charlbury Community Centre is open from 9am to 6pm on Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays; 9am to 7pm on Wednesdays and Fridays; and 9am-4.30pm on Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays. In the evenings there is controlled access for pre-booked sports and events. The café is open for the same hours as the Centre and the hours that the library is staffed can be found here. Even outside library opening hours, there is a self-service machine for borrowing and returning books whenever the Centre is open.

A big thank you to the fire crews from Charlbury and Chipping Norton who visited the centre to familiarise themselves with the building and pass on their expert advice. All our fire systems were given the thumbs up and a couple of tweaks suggested to aid them in the unlikely event their services would be needed.
