Metropolitan Police are holding an exciting rugby activity day for young people to tackle their free time.

‘Harrow summer smash-up’ is a free event on August 22 and 23, for 11 to 15-year-olds, where attendees can practice and show off their rugby skills, or even get the chance to try and tackle a police officer.

Metropolitan Police Officers, who are also qualified rugby coaches, will be working in partnership with professional coaches from The School of Hard Knocks and Saracens Sport Foundation and Harrow RFC to hold this event.

The two-day event will run from 10am to 4pm on both days, where young people with various abilities can team together and play tag-rugby.

Police Constable Ben Eynon, the organiser of the event, said: “The idea of the event is to keep children off the street and out of trouble. It will be a fun two-day rugby event.”

Participants will be provided with an event t-shirt, goody bag and free Domino’s pizza and other refreshments.

The summer smash-up will take place at Harrow School Sports Centre, Garlands Lane.
