About the Old Chigwellians Association
The OC Association has approximately 1500 members and has its base at the Club House, Roding Lane, Chigwell very near to the school. It is a sporting and social club with of course close ties to the school. It has several ‘associate’ members (i.e. non-Old Chigwellian) who are recommended and sponsored by existing OC members.
The Association runs four football teams (in the Arthurian league) and has a very strong reputation with its record of success as both League Champions and Arthur Dunn Cup Winners. The tennis section is also strong, playing in local leagues and has an excellent social background running in-house tournaments and Club nights (Tuesdays and Saturdays). The three all weather tennis courts have been recently resurfaced. The squash section is also active in local leagues and in-house tournaments. There is a junior football section run by a school parent and a junior tennis section is, we hope, to be developed soon. Ladies’ netball is just about to get started and the Club is projecting a number of ideas to develop other sporting activities for OC girls and other lady members.
Running of the club
The Association is run by a committee consisting of various volunteer members (and the school Head Pupil) – the sporting sections are run by their own sub-committees.
The Social Side and hiring the club for social functions
The Association also has a strong social side including Quiz Nights, various Club dinners, Wednesday lunches, school social events, OC Sundays and many others. The Clubhouse is available for hire for social functions, including birthday and anniversary parties, and full catering is provided (also discos if required). All enquiries to Tina Page on 020 8501 5711. The Club’s magazine, the Mitre, is published annually and sent to all members.
