Be a sporting hero by becoming a Sport Maker
Sport Makers are, quite simply, people who make sport happen. Whether it's planning the route, finding the pitch or encouraging people to take part - it needs people to make it happen.
Sport Makers is part of Sport England's mass participation legacy programme and is being coordinated in Oxfordshire by the Oxfordshire Sports Partnership. Find out more and sign up on the Oxfordshire Sports Partnership website.
