North Oxfordshire Branch of The Referees' Association welcomes referees and assessors who reside in the northern part of Oxfordshire and its surrounding areas.  It is an amalgamation of the former individual branches at Banbury and Bicester.

Meetings are held on the Fourth Thursday evening in the months of August - April (excluding December) in The Ashton Club which is located in Bicester Town Centre.  There is ample free car parking (after 7 pm) within a five-minute walk of the venue.

North Oxfordshire RA enjoys a good working relationship with the National RA, County RA, and Oxfordshire FA.

Meetings are informal social occasions where we discuss all aspects of refereeing and the mundane business element is kept to a minimum.

The branch has members of all refereeing levels and attendees are encouraged to take an active part in meetings.

The National RA recommends that prospective members should join through their local LRA, the easiest way being to attend one of the many local association meetings that take place across the country on a regular (usually monthly) basis. Find your nearest branch now.

Alternatively, online membership is now available for any referee who wishes to take up central membership. The National RA will then allocate you a local branch. Join now.
