History of Club

The game was first introduced to the area in 2011, by Maureen and Ian Wilson, who fell in love with the game in 2009 while visiting ‘The Villages’, Florida, USA. They approached ‘Go Active’, part of Oxfordshire Sports Partnership, in conjunction with Cherwell District Council, to get involved. ‘Go Active’ were instrumental in getting the club started, without their assistance and support we would not be where we are today.

The main group venue, meets every Friday from 19.45 to 21.30 at Kidlington and Gosford Leisure Centre, Oxford Road, Kidlington, OX5 2NU.
