Racquet sports

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.

We have  a reduced price of £6 per court for juniors to play racquet sports (badminton, pickleball or table tennis), when the courts are available. This can not be pre-booked but is a pay and play as you go rate.

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.


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.

  • Monday evenings from 8 to 10pm  is badminton evening at the Community Centre. Charlbury Badminton is an inclusive, social club and welcomes all abilities. Some members play to a good standard. Others are new to the game or have returned to the game after not playing for a number of years.  For more information please contact Mark: charlburyclub@outlook.com
