Community sports events

The Sports Development team working together with a variety of partners, deliver and support a number of community sports events throughout the year. These events see thousands of people of all ages enjoying trying out new sports and finding out about the fantastic opportunities available in and around Oxford.

Please keep a close eye on this page for new events and confirmed event dates and times.

Be a part of 2016's community events

We have a great line up for our community events this summer, but we are still on the lookout for more.

If you are a local sports club, coach or provider and would like the opportunity to showcase your sports and promote the fantastic sporting opportunities on offer then there is still time to register.

If you can offer a free taster session of your sport or activity at one or more of the planned community events please contact the Sport & Youth team on sportsdevelopment@oxford.gov.uk or 01865 252728.
