Cowley Table Tennis runs drop-in social sessions at the former Temple Cowley United Reformed Church on Tuesday evenings and Thursday mornings, a beginners session on Tuesday mornings, and Wednesday evening sessions at Cheney School Headington.
The informal, drop-in, social sessions are run on behalf of Oxford & District Table Tennis Association. We try and make sure you get to play people at a similar level to your own, but also encourage players to mix, for example, by playing doubles or helping less experienced players. The emphasis is on social table tennis.
Five tables. Bats available. Basic balls provided.
