This Girl Can is a national campaign that I'm really passionate about. It's about celebrating women in sport and encouraging and empowering females to take part in physical activity. In partnership with uea+sport, the SportsPark and our amazing sports clubs, we're running a This UEA Girl Can week full of activities and I'd like to encourage as many people as possible to get involved!
This week – from today until Sunday 26th November, there are a range of activities and events happening, with sports clubs running sessions every day. There's something for everyone, from badminton to ballet, kayaking to korfball and much more. The full programme of events can be seen here :
Alongside some great sessions throughout the week, the main event: the This UEA Girl Can open evening takes place on Thursday 23rd from 17:30 – 21:00. This open event, with highlights such as boxercise, a self defence class and a UV Zumba session is completely free and there's no registration required – just turn up and have fun! The full timetable for the evening will be released soon, so keep an eye on the social media for updates @ueasport and @unionuea
