Welcome to Octavian Droobers, celebrating 50 years! 1965 - 2015

The Droobers, Octavian Droobers or OD as they are known are the local orienteering club for Warwickshire, Coventry and Solihull in the West Midlands, UK.

  • Unlike most sports clubs we do not have a fixed weekly meeting point, but instead organise events on a regular basis around the area. See the Events page for details.
  • Walkers, joggers and runners of all ages 5 - 85 years are invited to explore our local woods and parks. We offer help and guidance on how to read maps and use a compass and electronic timer for newcomers at each event.
  • To see a short video explaining what the sport involves, have a look at the Beginners page.
  • For further information about the club please call 01926 632189 or email
