Give sport a go!
London 2012 has been a triumph. As the Prime Minister said: Britain delivered. As well as celebrating a record Team GB medal haul, we can revel in the satisfaction of a job well done. The world came to London and we gave them the greatest - and friendliest - show on earth.
The party may be over - for two weeks until the Paralympics start - but there's no need to suffer from withdrawal symptoms. A number of organisations and programmes are here to help you turn inspiration into particiaption....

If you're interested in a particular Olympic or non-Olympic sport, then its national governing body will be able to help you find the right club or place to play. Many are offering taster sessions specifically designed to give people like you the chance to try the sport they've been watching.
