About Us

The Banbury Evergreens Club was founded in 1982 and evolved from sports sessions offered on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons at the Spiceball Leisure Centre, for those in the 50+ age group.

However, you don’t have to play sport to be an Evergreen; of our 170+ members, most take part in the sports on offer, the rest of us simply enjoy the social activities and the friendship offered by the club. All of us have one thing in common; we take an active and positive approach to life.

The Banbury Evergreens club welcomes new sports and social members. If you’re shy, don’t let that stop you – a committee member will be happy to show you around and introduce you to other members.

Annual membership currently costs £5. See below for some more of our activities.
