Sportivate is a £32 million Lottery programme that gives semi-sporty 14-25 year olds access to six-week courses in a sport of their choice.
Oxford Brookes University Sport Sportivate Case Study
Oxford Brookes University Sport has previously consisted of training and competition for BUCS athletes and a general use facility for all students to utilise at their discretion.
In September 2011, Brookes put in place an initiative to begin Intra Mural sport for all students using Sportivate funding to help start each programme.
Oxford Brookes met most of the Sportivate participation targets set for the semester and now provide fun and social sessions for all students to enjoy including those who may not frequently compete in physical activity
Sport/gym participation numbers have now risen by 400 due to the new intra mural sessions and Brookes hope to introduce more sports in 2012.
