Outdoor and indoor racquet sports

Racquet Sports during Coronavirus

Unfortunately the sports hall has had to close as we are now in Lockdown again. No indoor sports allowed.

You may be interested to know how our air handling system works. It is very efficient and it does not recyle the air. It draws in fresh air as described here. This is an important point for your safety in these times.


Tennis courts can now be booked through the booking page or by ringing the Community Centre. The cost is £5 for non-members and it’s free for members of the Tennis Club. The rules for playing safely can be found here.

For further information, please phone Mark Jarman on 01608 811692, email charlburytennis@hotmail.co.uk or go to the tennis club website.

You should arrange to present your certificates on an annual basis to Judy Kirk, the Charlbury Tennis Club Safeguarding Officer. She can be contacted on  judy.kirk@btinternet.com
