Futher Information

This Girl Can is a national campaign developed by Sport England, encouraging women of all abilities to get active. Returning between the 19th- 25th of November, the week has loads of ways for you to get involved. Partnering with UPSU for the week, we have a great range of opportunities available. From FREE gym sessions to sport sessions to trying your hand at ‘Strictly’ style dancing, there is something for every girl.

The sessions are more focused on breaking down barriers, keeping you happy and healthy than your ability, so give it a go.

There’s no judgement, so forget about your face getting red, remembering the steps and just get involved! Because after all #fithappens.
