Free coaching sessions for west Londoners to fight off the festive bulge are on offer in the London Winter of Sport programme.
Up to 3,000 Londoners are expected to take part in a host of free coaching sessions across the capital between now and March with 100 community sports clubs and 18 school sport partnerships opening their doors to people of all ages.
The programme is part of the London Development Agency's (LDA) work to deliver a sporting legacy for the city after the 2012 Olympic Games by encouraging Londoners to take part in sport at local clubs and providing equipment to schools.
It follows last year's drive that helped set up 54 after school clubs across the capital and the London Summer of Sport programme that saw more than 8,000 people take part in free sports activities.
Tom Russell, LDA Group Director for Olympic Legacy, said: “Winter of Sport will help to increase sports participation in the capital because it gives Londoners the chance to play and be coached in a sport they may not have tried before.
“We want the 2012 Games to leave an enduring sporting legacy so we are offering opportunities now where people can make connections with local sports clubs and stay active for years to come."
Community sport clubs events are open to member of the public, while the School Sports Partnership activities are opening to school children within the schools that make up the partnership
