2020 2021 Season Timetables

Training will continue to be held across our 3 pitches on Sunday mornings – OC’s clubhouse pitch in Thames Ditton plus our two additional pitches at Hinchley Wood and Oaken Lane. We will also continue to run our increasingly important mid-week training for U10s and above. Please click on the link below for the Sunday and mid-week training timetables. Please note some groups will swap location at Christmas so you will find a Sept-Dec 2020 timetable and a Jan-March 2021 timetable.
