The Mayor of London Boris Johnson is encouraging Londoners of all ages and abilities to take up sport this summer

The Free Sport project, part of a multi-million pound initiative, involves more than 120 ventures spanning the capital. These include mobile swimming pools, Sky Ride cycling events, a Paralympic-style tournament and free table tennis.

Boris Johnson said: “As we build up to the 2012 Games, we want to inspire and encourage more Londoners to get active and have a go for themselves – particularly the youngsters who could be this country’s sporting stars of the future. Whatever your age, ability or proclivity, there’s a sport or activity to suit, so give it a go.”

FreeSport is part of the Mayor’s £30m pledge for a post-Olympic sporting legacy.

    I like the free gyms that are popping up all over London. They are really popular on Wandsworth Common!
