Get active during the summer holidays
District Council-owned leisure centres in West Oxfordshire are gearing up for an action-packed summer of activities for children and young people.
Playschemes and discount offers are running at the Council’s leisure centres in Carterton, Chipping Norton, The Windrush, Witney, and the new Bartholomew Sports Centre, in Eynsham.
The activities programme has been co-ordinated by Nexus Community, which runs the leisure facilities on behalf of the Council.
Aimed at 5 to 11-year-olds, there will be a host of fun and games on offer, including:
Camp Windrush at The Windrush Leisure Centre, with activities such as swimming, sports and roller skating.
Fun days, including games, arts and crafts, at Chipping Norton Leisure Centre.
Swim for £1 at Carterton, Chipping Norton and The Windrush Leisure Centres, and play any racket sport for only £1 at Chipping Norton.
Bartholomew Sports Centre is offering people of any age the chance to play badminton for just £1 whilst Carterton Artificial Turf Pitch is offering play for £1 on casual usage.
All of the leisure centres are offering a series of ‘taster’ courses for children, ranging from basketball to trampolining.
For the warmer days, Woodstock Open-Air Pool has both full-length and children’s pools, and a large grassed picnic area. Under-3s go free.
Cllr Hilary Biles, Cabinet Member for Leisure, said: “There will be a great variety of activities on offer and this is a perfect opportunity for young people to get active while having fun. The holiday schemes are usually very popular, so I would encourage people to book now.”
