activities for Women this month in Bedford Borough
Bedford Borough Council has joined
forces with Fusion Leisure and the ‘This Girl Can’ campaign from
Sport England to offer a week of free activities and sports
sessions for women in Bedford Borough.
Bedford Borough Council’s Sports Development
Unit and Fusion Lifestyle are working together to offer a wide
variety of sessions for women by women. All 29 sessions are based
at Fusion Leisure’s facilities across Bedford Borough.
Every session is free of charge for women and
girls, in order to encourage them to try something new and get
active! There is so much on offer, including – Zumba, Nordic
walking, badminton, and even rugby.
There are 2 million fewer women than men
regularly playing sport in England, and according to research from
Sport England over 13 million women say they would like to
participate in more sport and physical activity.
Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture,
Councillor Sarah-Jayne Holland said ‘Helping more people get active
means happier, healthier communities so getting women and girls
more involved in sport and physical activity is really
‘There is so much on offer for all abilities
and I would like to encourage women and girls in Bedford Borough to
give something new a try with our Sports Development team!’
This initiative has been supported by a
generous grant from ‘The Eileen Alexander Legacy Fund’ from The
Bedford Physical Education Old Students’ Association which aims to
promote physical activity in Bedford Borough.
The week of activities takes place between
Sunday 23rd April and Sunday 30th April 2017.
There is no need to pre-book but please be aware that all sessions
are on a first come first served basis and some sessions have
limited numbers. Further information will be provided at the end of
every session about how you can continue with the activity.
