NEWS IN FOCUS | SE02EP15 ‘This Girl Can’

Tonight’s News In Focus program takes a look at the ‘This Girl Can’ sporting campaign, ahead of next Thursday’s event, hosted by Mansfield District Leisure Trust, in Titchfield Park.

Craig Priest speaks to members of the Leisure Trust Team to find out why a need for more women and girls to participate in sport in the local area is needed, what activities are on offer, and what impact ‘This Girl Can’ has already made.

Also this week, Mansfield’s Golden Girl Double Olympic Gold Medallist Rebecca Adlington share’s her views on the campaign, one she say’s has helped her – following her retirement from swimming.

‘Mansfield Girls Can’ is part of a nationwide Sport England campaign called This Girl Can which aims to get women and girls moving, regardless of shape, size and ability.

The local campaign is being co-ordinated by Mansfield District Council, Sport Nottinghamshire and Mansfield District Leisure Trust and is due to be launched on Thursday 21 September in Titchfield Park, Mansfield, from 11am to 6.30pm.

Research by Sport England reveals that two million fewer women than men, aged 14 to 40, play sport regularly. Despite this, 75% say they want to be more active. In some other European countries, this disparity does not exist.

Many women - of all ages - cited a fear of judgement on appearance, ability or how they chose to spend time on themselves, as their main deterrent from exercising.  

More on that this evening from 6pm with Craig Priest
