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.
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.

Contact Vijay by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01993 891 043 to join any of these sessions.
You can also hire a court to play pickleball (or any other sport) and the Community Centre has plenty of Pickleball paddles and balls that you can borrow if you don’t have your own.
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 email@example.com 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, £6 for juniors).
Over the summer we've replaced baked potatoes with home-made vegetarian quiche and salad (£5). And the warm cheese scones with butter (£1.50) are proving very popular too!
Do you enjoy a game of Scrabble? Would you like some new people to play with? We are experimenting with having some Scrabble afternoons and if it proves popular we will offer these regularly. The next session is on Tuesday 16th July 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.
Throughout June we will be opening the gym at 8.30am, rather than 9am as an experiment to see if it helps people. The rest of the centre won't be open until 9am. Remember also that on Wednesday mornings there is a class in the gym between 9 and10am, so it's best to avoid that time.
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.
Quiz night is back on Wed 24th July, set by Gordon Cutting. If it's nice enough weather we might be able to spill out onto the patio! The café and bar open at 7.15pm for a prompt start at 7.45pm. Priced only £5 per player. More details here.
