GB handball star Bobby White is set to provide inspiration to youngsters in a Sportivate project in Aylesbury as part of the London 2012 legacy.

Sportivate is the £56 million National Lottery funded Olympic and Paralympic legacy initiative that gives 11 to 25-year-olds who aren’t particularly sporty six to eight weeks’ free coaching in a new sport and then helps them find low cost ways to continue to play.

To help inspire and motivate Sportivate participants at Aylesbury Grammar School, Sport England ‘Champion’ White hopes he can provide inspiration.

“I’m really looking forward to visiting this exciting Sportivate handball project being delivered at Aylesbury Grammar School,” he said.

“The opportunity to support such community sports programmes is a real privilege for me.

“I’m hopeful that by using the Olympic and Paralympic legacy from London 2012 and through my experiences in competing at elite level, I can inspire all the young people in attendance to sustain their sports participation.”
