Hi, I'm just an applicant, so I'm not who you are looking for. However, I can say that both Oxford and Cambridge have stated that they do not care about extracurriculars. You can still mention them in your personal statement (for example, in relation to the skills you've gained from them), but they won't be used in the decision process. You might mean supercurriculars instead, which are related to the subject you intend to study.
