We are a self-funded youth club located in Kennington, Oxford which has been open since the 1940s. We are open to young people in school years 5-10, running sessions term-time Wednesdays 7 – 8.30pm for years 5-9 and a monthly cafe for years 8-10 (we are hoping to start opening more regularly for years 8-10 in the next academic year). We operate from our dedicated youth club building behind the Village Hall, opposite the health centre.
Activities include: Pool, Table Tennis, Wii and computers, Table Football, Darts, Cooking, Air Hockey, and various board games.
We have a tuck shop serving a range of drinks, crisps, healthy snacks, fruit, 5 and 10p sweets and chocolate bars.
Most sessions are open access but we often get together at the end for any notices and a team game.
Additionally some weeks we organise themed events and parties. We also talk about relevant issues such as knife crime, healthy eating, mental health, etc. We also run a free book swap.
