The successful Sport England campaign aims to inspire women and girls to get more active. Now in its seventh year, This Girl Can has had an impact on changing female attitudes towards sport and exercise.

If you're a sports club, leisure provider, organisation or school who would like to offer an activity as part of the borough's This Girl Can week, please complete the online form at https://one.welhat.gov.uk/ThisGirlCan by Friday 3 June.

All clubs and organisations submitting an activity will be entered into a prize draw to win £250 to use on women's and girls' activities. Full terms and conditions can be found on the website.

All the activities will be publicised on the events calendar on the one.welhat.gov.uk website.

Last year, there were over 40 female-friendly sessions on offer, ranging from mixed martial arts to netball to skiing.

Milan Johnston, Sports Partnership Officer at Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council said:

Our This Girl Can events have proven to be very popular and it's a great opportunity for local clubs to showcase some of the amazing activities they have available, as well as encouraging more women and girls in the area to get involved in physical activity.

This will be the fifth year we've run a programme for This Girl Can and we're looking forward to partnering again with the many different organisations in Welwyn Hatfield.
