As part of the national This Girl Can campaign, UoM Sport are putting on a range of free women’s-only events for students and staff between 1-8 December.
Why? Because sports participation in the UK is suffering from a significant gender gap! Research carried out by Sport England reveals that by every measure, less women than men play sport regularly. This Girl Can aims to inspire an increase in physical activity among women, seeking to challenge the conventional idea of what sport and exercise looks like.
There’s all sorts going on during the week! From squash to swimming, self-defence to yoga, there’s even a Ski Session if you fancy trying that. During the week there are plenty of ways to get involved in sport! See below for the full timetable of events.
All events are aimed are for all abilities including complete beginners; whether you want to increase your fitness, try a new activity or meet new people, it’s never too late to start a new sport or activity.
For more information about the campaign and what’s on throughout the week, visit the sport website and follow UoM Sport Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
