People will be able to pick up a racquet and learn how to play squash for free thanks to a summer sport initiative by the Mayor of London.

The classes will be on offer all summer at Harrow Leisure Centre in Christchurch Avenue, and will be run by Harrow Squash Club.

The sessions are part of Major of London's FreeSport Summer 2014 initiative, which aims to get people across the capital active.

The Harrow club is inviting new members to learn the sport and those who haven’t picked up a racquet in years to take part.

All equipment and coaching will be provided. The classes will run every Tuesday and Thursday from 10.30am to 12pm until October 31 and those interested in taking part can Harrow Squash Club on 020 8901 5980 or by clicking here.
