Sportivate, one of Sport England's flagship London 2012 legacy programmes, has reached more than 250,000 young adults in the country.

Figures published by Sport England show that a total of 256,000 teenagers and young adults have so far benefitted from free or discounted courses in 70 different sports.

Each course runs for six to eight weeks and an encouraging number of people - 215,000 out of the 256,000 - completed their courses without missing more than one session.

Backed by National Lottery funding, Sportivate will run until 2017 and has been designed to help 14- to 25-year-olds to get involved in sports by offering discounted and free sessions in sports ranging from judo and tennis to wakeboarding (pictured).

It is delivered by the network of 49 county sports partnerships, working with local clubs and providers.
