The Sweatbox is an open access youth centre, welcoming young people mostly from Wantage, Grove and the surrounding villages but also from across Oxfordshire and a variety of schools, academies and colleges.

We are based on King Alfred’s Academy Centre site and offer a range of sports, arts and fun activities like our popular inflatable gladiator jousting, beanbag cinema, Nintendo Switch gaming, sumo wrestling, karaoke, go karts, and our Skatebox portable skate ramps amongst other things. There is a free pool table, table football and a coffee bar that sells snacks and drinks.
