UCLanSport supports This Girl Can
UCLanSport introduced a range of additional activities to our sports facilities this week in support of the #ThisGirlCan and #ThisBUCSGirlCan social media campaigns.
The week has been a great success, with Sir Tom Finnney Sports Centre staging netball tournaments, women's only gym sessions and badminton tournaments which attracted participants in their hundreds.
Our social media channels became a hive of activity during the week with photos and comments on both the additional and regular activities including Zumba, Legs Bums and Tums classes, and Bootcamps.
The release of our This Girl Can video (above) has resulted in a dramatic increase in student engagement and promoted female participation in UCLan's sports activities.
The week's events created a massive buzz amongst UCLan staff and students - we are proud to be involved and champion female participation in sport and physical activity.
