53% of females in Kent want to do more sport. 27% who want to do more are currently inactive. The award winning Sport England campaign This Girl Can has recently been credited with the increase in more women playing sport nationally.
Kent Sport is running a Women and Girls campaign during January – March 2016 focusing on increasing participation and awareness of just what is available here in Kent. We will work towards and include a focus on International Women’s Day on 8 March. We will work with partners, colleagues and individuals across this period to showcase opportunities and what advice is available to those wanting to deliver or take part in activities. We’ll showcase some inspirational group and personal stories as we tour the county and will update this page with news across the three month period.
