Free places are now available to young people who want to take up a sport this summer.

Wolverhampton Police has secured funding from Black Country Sportivate and Sport England to provide a number of 6-week sports sessions for young people aged 11 to 25.

And there are a range of sports on offer, from archery, athletics and boxing to canoeing, cheerleading, climbing, dance fusion, golf, sailing and scuba diving.

Some 400 spaces are still up for grabs on a first come, first served, basis, and all sports are free to take part in, with the exception of scuba diving, for which there is a charge.  Times and locations vary.

PC Joe Trusselle of Wolverhampton Police said: "This is a great opportunity for young people to try out a sport for free this summer, and we're hoping to get a great response from local people because the more interest we get in the project, the more sessions we will be able to stage for young people in Wolverhampton."
