Whenever the sports hall, or part of it, is free you can book a court to play badminton, pickleball or table tennis. Price £12 per hour. See the timetable link on the home page for an idea of when it might be free and then phone us or book on line to secure your court. If you would like a regular booking, the price could be reduced.
The sports hall has four badminton courts and competition standard nets which can be erected when needed. Individual courts can be booked at certain times or you can book the whole hall for your club practice.
Charlbury has a well established tennis club that caters for both those who want to play competitive league tennis and those who want to play socially. The club presently runs several men’s, ladies and mixed doubles teams with matches played both at the weekend and in the evenings all year round. The club runs three weekly social sessions.
For further information, please phone Mark Jarman on 01608 811692, email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to the tennis club website.
You can book the outdoor tennis courts on Nineacres and the indoor tennis court in the sports hall through the “Booking” button on this website.
There are two tables, together with plenty of bats, balls etc. These can be set up in the main sports hall or the TG room, whichever is free (cost £12 an hour).

You can also hire a court to play pickleball (or any other sport) and the Community Centre has eight Pickleball paddles and some balls that you can borrow if you don’t have your own.
Do you enjoy a game of Scrabble? Would you like some new people to play with? We are experimenting with having some Scrabble afternoons or evenings and if it proves popular we will offer these regularly. The next session is on Tuesday 26th March 2.30-5pm. Cost only £2. In the meantime there are two Scrabble sets at the Centre, which you can use at any time for a game with friends.

TG's cafe is now offering baked potatoes at lunch time, with a choice of fillings: cheese, baked beans (or both), tuna and sweetcorn with mayo. Why not stay for lunch after your sporting activities, or drop in for a tasty, warming lunch?
We'd love to reunite you with your possessions! Most items will be kept for 14 days. Valuables such as watches, jewellery and expensive sports equipment will be kept for 28 days. Each Wednesday between 1 - 5pm unclaimed items will be displayed in the centre and can be purchased for a nominal amount. After this, they will be given to charity.
