Women’s Sport Wednesdays Launches

Women in Sport encourages the nation to get together, get active and raise money for Women’s Sport Wednesdays.

Women's Sport Wednesdays

Women in Sport is proud to launch Women’s Sport Wednesdays, a fundraising campaign encouraging the nation to come together to play sport and raise money to help women and girls reach their full potential through sport.

The first Women’s Sport Wednesday will take place on 5th October 2016, during national Women’s Sport Week, and will launch an ongoing campaign through which Women in Sport  aims to make Wednesdays the day of the week when every playing field, pitch, pool, track and court will be filled with women  and girls playing sport and having fun, all in the name of charity.

Participants are encouraged to organise their own Women’s Sport Wednesdays fundraising activities to celebrate and encourage women’s and girl’s sport. From table tennis tournaments in the office to fancy dress matches on the pitch, Women’s Sport Wednesdays can offer something for everyone to take part in.

With 1.6 million more men than women regularly playing sport in England, and only 1 in 5 women and 1 in 10 girls doing enough exercise to stay fit, healthy and happy, Women in Sport is appealing to supporters to get involved in Women’s Sport Wednesdays and help transform sport for every woman and girl in the UK.

The money raised will allow Women in Sport to work with sports organisations and schools across the UK to create programmes that help more women and girls to benefit their lives through sport.

We want to create a future where everyone can benefit from sport – regardless of gender. By taking part in Women’s Sport Wednesdays you can help to achieve this.  Click here to download our Fundraising Pack to kick start your Women’s Sport Wednesdays activity.
