Women only tasters
Sports clubs and organisations are to receive support from the sport and active lifestyles team at Huntingdonshire District Council to provide women and girls only opportunities to take part in sport from January to May 2012.
Sports clubs and organisations already working with the team to offer women only sessions are Huntingdon Gymnastics Club with sessions running throughout January and February, Huntingdonshire Cricket Board with sessions running throughout April and May, and One Leisure Ramsey with swimming and open racquet sessions from January to May.
Councillor Tom Sanderson, whose executive responsibilities include sport and active lifestyles, said: “Our goal is to get more women and girls playing sport, and we can only achieve this through working in partnership with sports clubs and organisations to provide more opportunities for people to take part.”
All of the sessions will be led by qualified female coaches, aiming to make the sessions as inclusive as possible. For more information about dates and times of sessions, pick up an Adult Sports leaflet from your local One Leisure site or visit the webpages using the link on the right.
For any further queries, or if your sports club or organisation would like to support the scheme and provide women’s taster sessions, contact the Sport and Active Lifestyles team on 01480 388469.
