Summer of fun in West Oxfordshire

A fun-packed programme of activities aimed at getting more young people involved in sport and learning new skills is being rolled out across West Oxfordshire this summer.

From cricket to kung fu, tennis to trampolining and football to fencing, a wide range of sports sessions have been organised by West Oxfordshire District Council and its leisure partner, Wycombe Leisure Limited.

The Council has come up with the programme as part of its 5 for Life campaign, which aims to encourage everyone to do at least 30 minutes of physical activity 5 times a week.

Cllr Hilary Biles, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Health, said: “The programme has been carefully planned to offer a variety of activities to appeal to all tastes. We all know the importance of exercise and we hope this will encourage young people to try new sports and develop talents that will help them lead a healthy, active lifestyle while enjoying themselves and having fun.”

More than 20 activities will be available at different locations, including the Council’s Leisure Centres and sports clubs and grounds across the District, during the school summer holidays.

Full details are available in the Summer Activities 2007 programme. Copies can be picked up from Carterton, Chipping Norton and Witney’s Windrush Leisure Centres
