Maccabi’s school sports programme is benefiting from the Olympic legacy with an autumn term increase of 200 pupils in its activities, taking the total up to 2,800.

The organisation hopes to further boost participation levels in 2013 by offering more school sports tournaments, weekly sports clubs and community sports days as part of its Sport For Everyone programme.

Maccabi GB’s Matthew Travers said: “The Olympic Games definitely lit the blue touchpaper and we intend to give anyone looking to play sports a means of doing so.”
