Sport targets must be for all our kids

It is now clear that sport's contribution to community well-being goes far beyond physical fitness. Current anxiety about obese children, of course, is enough in itself to warrant making a further step-change in access to sport.

But studies show that the case for more structured sporting activity is even stronger.
