About Us

AIMS: The aim of the Tuesday Club, for both adults and juniors, whatever their playing level, is to have fun and improve their game and fitness as a result. We will run various coaching sessions and mini-tournaments from time to time. We have very few rules but politeness and fair play is a by-word of all sports and ours is no exception.  We treat each other and the equipment with respect and try and help each player get an equal amount of time on court. 

WHEN?: The Club runs all through the year at The Cooper School in Bicester, Oxfordshire (www.thecooperschool.co.uk), unless the hall is unavailable due to exams or other school functions. The school is manned by Cherwell Council employed staff who are first aiders and responsible for security and suitability of the site.

NOTE TO PARENTS: As a mixed age-group club within a multi-use sports facility, we advise that for those U18’s being dropped off by parents, could parents ensure their child is left only while one of the responsible adults is present and please collect punctually. Please see your child into the sports hall, and pick them up from there at the end. We do not recommend children to wait alone in the car park and cannot take any responsibility once they have left the hall.

If you feel like coming along, you can just turn up on the night and ask for David or Paul.
