Women’s Sport Wednesdays – What’s Happened Already

This October, Women in Sport proudly launched 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.

We’ve had hundreds of people across the UK support us in 2016, hosting a variety of events and activities to raise valuable funds and make a real difference.

Seeing as it’s the season of good will, we can’t think of a better opportunity to say ‘Thank You’ once more and – who knows – maybe encourage you to host a #WomensSportWeds activity in 2017!

The University of Liverpool’s Cheerleading and Dance squad found a very tasty way to support Women in Sport. Organising a Bake Sale to raise money and ensure their team were well fuelled after training!


Imperial College London

We are really lucky to get support from lots of clubs and universities, and this included Imperial College, who used their BUCS Fixtures showdown event to support Women’s Sport Wednesdays.


Could it be you next?

If a Women’s Sport Wednesday event has sparked your imagination, there’s lots of opportunity ahead to support us…

  • 2017 – want to commit to a New Year’s Resolution you know will make a difference? It’s a New Year and a perfect opportunity to try a new sport in the name of Women’s Sport Wednesdays.
  • International Women’s Day – falls on a #WomensSportWeds and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate than getting every playing field, pitch, pool, track and court filled with women and girls playing sport, having fun and raising funds to support our charitable work.
