A new scheme designed to encourage more people from deprived areas to take part in sport is to be launched early next year by Oldham Community Leisure (OCL).

Energize will provide an extensive programme of activities and opportunities in conjunction with Oldham Athletic Community Trust; The Oldham College; and Community 1st Oldham.

OCL revealed the project has a target of 10,000 new attendances at sports sessions between January and July 2012, with £14,000 being contributed by Community 1st Oldham.

A further £10,000 has come from Sport England's SportMatch fund and will see Energize offer sports such as football, boxing and cricket for around 50p per session.

OCL health and outdoor development officer Alan Keane said: "While our main target group is young people from 16-to-25 who are often less likely to participate in sport, we are also offering activities for families and older people."
