This Girl Can is a national campaign developed by Sport England and a wide range of partnership organisations. It’s a celebration of active women up and down the country who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets. 

The Active People Survey (now Active Lives) results show that women are less likely to take part in sport than men.

We are working hard to persuade more women to get active. Not only does regular activity improve women's own physical and mental health, but women have a strong influencing role within their own families.

How do I get involved?

There are 100's of activities for women and girls across Greater Manchester. From Bowls to Boxing and Dancing to Diving, your bound to find an activity for you.

We have gathered up as many as we can for you to browse through here.

You can also find a practical guide about getting into a new activity or getting back into an old favourite here

We want to hear from you!
