A project which inspired hundreds of Sheffield people to get sporty following the London 2012 Olympics is making a comeback.

Get Sheffield Fit, part of the £32 million National Lottery Sportivate programme, aims to get people involved in a range of sports, including ice skating, judo and self defence, boxing, gymnastics, trampolining, tennis, badminton and general gym work.

People aged 14 to 25 can sign up for eight weeks of one to one coaching.

The Sport England scheme is delivered by Sheffield International Venues in partnership with South Yorkshire Sport and Activity Sheffield.

The eight-week sessions, which return this week, were first introduced in May and attracted more than 350 people.

Paralympic silver medallist Will Bayley and Team GB diver Monique Gladding showed their support for Sportivate by visiting the sessions and delivering one-off coaching.
