Sundays between 11am and 5pm are a good time to book courts for badminton, tennis, table tennis etc as the sports hall is not currently subject to any block bookings then. Similarly you will find plenty of slots available on weekday mornings. 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 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).

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 eight Pickleball paddles and some balls that you can borrow if you don’t have your own.
Charlbury Art Society has completed the first phase of a Community Art Project to make and install swoops of swifts. The individual birds have been made from mosaic and the first swoop has been placed on the Nine Acres Pavilion wall in our courtyard outside the library. They look fantastic!
We now have a magnificent Christmas tree just outside the front door. Thanks to Halcyon farm discounting and delivering it, House and Carriage/MySTORE for sponsoring it and our doughty team of volunteers for erecting and decorating it. It will make a festive setting for our carol singing on Friday 14th at 8pm.
Please join us and the Charlbury School Choir to sing carols at 8pm on Friday 14th. There will be mince pies and mulled wine too - generously sponsored by the Font Cafe.
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.
The Christmas quiz night will be Wed 12th November, set by Tom Smith. The café and bar open at 7.30pm for a prompt start at 8pm. Priced only £5 per player, these quizzes are usually a sell-out so get your tickets soon from reception. More details here. A big thank you to Derek Collett for hosting last month's event.
