Following the Survey of Old Pangbournians last year, several new Sports and Social Groups were proposed and the Chairman, Phillip Plato, has held several group discussions with various OPs that are resulting in several new OP sports & social groups emerging.  These include;

  • Car & Motorcycle Club – planning to organise events of interest to all “petrol heads” from the Classic Car show held at the College to organising trips for OPs at racing events, motor museums or tours of racing car factories or vehicle manufacturers.
  • Cricket Club – seeking to revive the tradition of Old Pangbournians playing the College 1st XI on Founders Day and hopefully the occasional match against other school alumni.
  • Rowing Supporters group – offering news of College participation in various rowing events and providing a focal point at regattas for supporters of Pangbourne College Boat Club including Henley Royal, National Schools, Henley Women’s regattas and other events.
  • Revival of Nautics Rowing Club for OPs to undertake competitive rowing ranging from informal private races against the College to possibly racing at Henley Masters, or Head of the Charles. Regattas.
  • Business to Business (B2B) group – offering OPs a chance to network and possibly do business with other OPs but also for any OPs wishing to help the College providing careers information to College students/leavers.
  • Local Pubs or Dinner Groups – Aiming is to create several local groups of OPs living within the same county or nearby and organising a regular meeting point at their respective “local” pub or restaurant.  

Anyone interested in getting involved can join these emerging groups via the new Pangbournian Portal website or by contacting the OP Society via the College.
