Women in Sport

This Girl Can

This Girl Can is a national campaign, developed by Sport England, to inspire women and girls, of all ages, shapes, abilities and backgrounds, to take up sport and/or be physically active. 
Throughout 2018, Broxbourne Council will be building on the national campaign with our own women and girls' programme – called This Girl Can - Broxbourne. We will be using this brand on all of our women and girls related sports projects and there are dedicated social media channels including Facebook and Twitter. Please give us a follow or a like!

Back to Netball

If you want to start playing netball again, Back to Netball is for you! It is a gentle reintroduction back into netball with some skills practices and some game play. We have people of all ages going Back to Netball and also a range of abilities, from those who have never played to those who played 15 years ago at school, as well as players who only hung up their trainers a couple of years ago. 

Girls Outdoors

Girls Outdoors meets on Tuesday evenings and is an outdoor session open to women aged eight years and over. No experience is necessary and it is a great opportunity for mothers and daughters or a group of friends.

The activities vary week to week and we try to offer a program which enables you to take part in a variety of activities.

Walking Netball

Walking Netball is a slower version of the game; it is netball, but at a walking pace. The game has been designed so that anyone can play it regardless of age or fitness level. From those who have dropped out of the sport they love due to serious injury, to those who believed they had hung up their netball trainers many years ago, it really is for everyone.

Women and Girls Rugby

Beginner ladies rugby provides a gentle introduction for female players over the age of 16 years. Sessions are coach led and cover basic skill development, fitness and play. The emphasis on these sessions is on learning new skills, keeping fit and having fun playing rugby with friends.
