Pop-up squash courts set up in shopping centres

Empty retail spaces across the UK are being converted into temporary squash courts.

The "pop-up" squash court is part of a campaign being launched this week, called the Big Hit.

It will offer shoppers a chance to try their hand at squash and racket ball with a qualified coach giving free lessons.

Organisers hope the project will help strengthen the sport's chances of becoming an Olympic event.
