Oxford sports clubs - some ideas
Top 5 ways to keep fit/play sport in the area
|Oxford Ice Rink
Oxford Ice Rink was opened in November 1984. Since then it has been a popular destination for both tourists and residents. There is an active ice hockey team - the Oxford City Stars - and a popular figure skating club, as well as lessons available for beginners.
|Oxford City Rowing Club
With so much water surrounding Oxford it is unsurprising that rowing is a favourite sport of many of the students and locals. Oxford City Rowing Club at Donnington Bridge has courses and crews for all abilities as well as a lively social club.
Oxford is criss-crossed with cycle and tow paths making it a paradise for enthusiastic cyclists. The bike is king in this city, which is often congested. As a result, the cyclist is well catered for and there are plenty of stands to which to secure your bike when it isn’t being ridden.
|Tennis and Real Tennis
In the summer months delight in playing tennis on grass at Alexandra Court, off Middle Way in Summertown. Avoid the winter chill with a different form of the game dating back to the Tudors, played at the indoor Real Tennis Club near Merton College.
Set in North Oxford (with excellent parking!), Nuffield Health offers up to 60 classes a week and has a great gym with top-class equipment and expert instructors. It also has indoor squash, badminton and tennis courts, as well as outdoor tennis courts for the summer months.
