Tennis and Squash in Adderbury

The village tennis and squash club is about to start a new tennis coaching term. The club called ‘Banbury Westend’ is located in the centre of Adderbury at the bottom of Chapel Lane.  There is a full schedule of tennis and squash play, including league matches, coaching and friendly sessions as well as a licensed bar and a full schedule of social nights.

Adderbury Ukulele Group

The group have been practising all through the lockdown via Zoom. For a short while last summer, they were able to play together on the Green, keeping social distancing, but this was short lived when greater restrictions were introduced. They used the down-time to extend their library of popular songs.  Mostly from the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s, such as a medley of Drifters songs, Pussycat and Engelbert Humperdinck, but also a more modern Ronan Keating song.

With the easing of restrictions, the group have returned to the Adderbury Bowls Club on Monday evenings to play outside on the patio, where they practice the songs from their repertoire.  They clearly have a good time strumming and singing and are looking forward to playing in front of audiences again.
