Go Active & Active Women - July 2017




GO Active & Active Women
July 2017
Welcome to the July 2017 edition of the GO Active & Active Women Newsletter for Oxford!

The schools have now officially broken up for summer, and hopefully we'll see some more of that glorious sunshine over the coming weeks. The holidays are the perfect time to head outdoors, get active and enjoy some quality time with the family.

If you're desperate to head outdoors but you don't know what you'd like to do, why not check out our current lists of fun and varied activities across our GO Active and Active Women schemes.

Ping! Pong Parlour


For the second year in a row we are thrilled to be able to offer you a FREE Ping! Pong Parlour this summer. The parlour, open weekdays, from the 7th-25th August, 1100-1800 is a fantastic way to enjoy some table tennis with family and friends. All equipment is provided so whether it be a friendly game, a grudge match or an opportunity to challenge our mighty 'Pingbot' then this is the perfect thing for you. Come and join us at Oxford University Club Rugby Pavilion on Iffley Road this summer! 

We need you! 

The Sport and Physical Activity Team is always looking to improve and we can't do that without your feedback. Your thoughts and comments help us to shape our programmes, and hopefully improve what we are able to offer you in terms of Sport and Physical Activity in the City.

If you have a spare 5 minutes and you would be prepared to share your feedback then we encourage you to please complete our GA survey! Thank you :) 

Oxford half Marathon
Volunteer registration for the Virgin Sport Oxford is now open!
Here's your chance to get involved with Virgin Sport and the local host community in Oxford. It takes a village to make  events incredible, and everyone is welcome to join Virgin Sport. There are lots of roles available on event day, so there is something to suit everyone!
In return for giving Virgin Sport your time, they will give you breakfast or lunch, a Virgin Sport event cap and FREE entry into a Virgin Sport event within one year (subject to minimum age limits that apply to each of our events).
Wishing you the most wonderful of summer holidays, full of family, friends, fun and physical activity!
