*Bungee is a free to use location based activities app for young people across Oxfordshire.

The app has been designed, developed, tested and presented by young people so that Bungee works the way they want it to - two clicks and you've got what you need!

Everyone can use Bungee; from bored teenagers through to parents looking for something to do with the kids, Bungee has something to offer. There are over 2000 individual and unique activities on Bungee advertising one-off fun days through to all year round drama clubs. We estimate that Bungee offers Oxfordshire over 40,000 activity events over the course of a year, so there is always lots to do on any given day.

Friday Night Takeover Round-upTable tennis match

To launch the community sport element of the Youth Ambition programme (jointly funded by Sport England), Oxford City Council's Sports Development team hosted a free and fun event for young people aged 14 to 21 in Oxford at the former Royal Mail Warehouse, which is the new home to Oxford Hoops Basketball Club.

In addition to letting young people know about the opportunities available through the Youth Ambition programme, the event offered a range of activities including, basketball, street dance, dodgeball, inflatable volleyball, skateboarding, table tennis, a roller disco, DJ and more! There was also an opportunity to engage with young people with our very own Big Brother style diary room hosted by Film Oxford and an interactive graffiti wall.

Almost 400 young people from four city secondary schools attended the event earlier in the day to take part in a sports tournament. From 4.30pm we then opened up the doors for all young people in Oxford to enjoy getting active for free!

Take a look at the Oxford Mail article covering this event.

If your aged from 15 to 21 and want to continue getting active and having fun then check out the range of multi-sports sessions we have on offer below.

Oxford City Council receives almost £140,00 lottery investment to give local sport a boost

Oxford City Council is set to help more local people get into sport thanks to £139,509 of National Lottery funding from Sport England's Community Sport Activation Fund.

Oxford City Council is among 32 projects to receive a share of £5.1 million of funding to support grassroots sport activity across the country and build a lasting legacy from last year's successful Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The project will offer young people from Blackbird Leys, Barton, Cutteslowe, Rose Hill and Wood Farm, aged 15 - 21 the opportunity to get involved in multi-sport sessions right on their doorsteps. The sports delivered will be shaped by what the 'young people' want, with an overall goal of developing a sporting pathway that helps ensure that each individual is inspired to adopt a sporting habit for life.

To further inspire young people to get involved, Oxford City Council has partnered up with Bounts to offer an exciting incentive scheme. Every session the young people attend will earn them points, which can be redeemed against a number of rewards including high-street shopping vouchers, days out and much more!

The project will look to work closely with a variety of partners including the Community Association’s within the areas of delivery and Fusion Lifestyle who operate the Council's leisure centres.

This project is part of Oxford City Council's wider Youth Ambition programme to improve the life chances of young people. Please see our youth ambition strategy below:
