Mayor of London Boris Johnson Launches Free Sport Project

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.
