Abingdon-on-Thames has almost every sport you can name either in the town or very close by. First port of call for a lot of people is the White Horse Leisure and Tennis Centre. This is run by a not-for-profit company on a contract to District and a lot of money has been put back into upgrading facilities. The swimming pool is very good and open from early morning until late evening.
There are extremely good facilities at Tilsley Park in North Abingdon for team games and athletics. People come from other towns and places such as Newbury and Oxford for clubs such as hockey and running. Abingdon Marathon sets off from here one Sunday in October.
The Park Run part of a national movement takes places on Saturday mornings using the Abbey Meadow. All the town's clubs are given in our directory here.
Ask at the Information Centre, look and the District sport and leisure pages for regular and seasonal sports.The Sports and Leisure section of the District Council site gives information on activities for particular age groups including holiday courses for children, free taster sessions, ideas for keeping particular age groups active or fit.
