The club is situated in the north part of St.Michael's Park in the centre of Cirencester. Access to the club is via King Street, which connects Watermoor Road with Victoria Road. Parking is usually available on King Street except Fridays, when antique auctions are held in Bingham Hall.
The club has two half size lawns which are open daily from April to October. New members are always welcome and coaching can be arranged for beginners, for whom club mallets are available. During the season the club has club days every Monday and Wednesday afternoon.
The members are relatively inexperienced and so the club does not yet participate in the Federation leagues, but there are internal club competitions throughout the season.

The aim of Cotswold Model Car Club is to promote the driving & racing of 1/10 scale model cars in the Cotswolds. The club website www.cotswoldmcc.co.uk has details of the calendar and classes of cars raced at club meetings. The Club runs within the BRCA (British Radio Car Association) rules and for insurance purposes all members must join the BRCA before they are allowed to race.
We encourage everyone to race, and our club has a diverse age (and skill!) range. Depending on entries, there are often two or three groups for each class which allows everyone to race with others of similar ability in the finals.
At club meetings we will normally run 3 qualifying heats and 2 finals for each class depending on numbers. Club race meetings start at around 09.00 am on a Sunday although this varies during the year so check on the race calendar or homepage for up to date information.
