This Girl Can in Welwyn Hatfield returns from 10 to 16 June.

Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council is encouraging local sports clubs, leisure providers, organisations, and schools to sign up and be part of the popular week-long event!

The successful Sport England campaign aims to inspire women and girls to get more active. Now in its ninth year, This Girl Can continues to have a positive 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 by Friday 31 May 2024.

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 website, which has around 10,000 unique visitors each month, equivalent to one in five households in the Welwyn Hatfield area!

Last year, there were over 100 female-friendly sessions on offer, ranging from pickleball to paddleboarding and golf.
