Ladies, get ready to move and groove during ‘This Girl Can’ Week.

Leicestershire and Rutland Sport (LRS) in partnership with Rutland County Council, are hosting their second annual ‘This Girl Can’ Week from Monday until next Sunday.

This Girl Can is a celebration of active women who are doing their thing no matter how they do it, how they look or even how sweaty they get, and this special campaign week is designed to inspire local ladies to increase their activity levels.

The week offers women and girls of all ages and activity levels some amazing opportunities to try new sports and activities, increase their confidence and self-esteem and enjoy more time with new and existing friends.

There are over 200 sessions available across Leicestershire and Rutland including Pilates, beginner running, netball and the new craze, Clubbercise! There is also a Charity Night Out in Charnwood, Walking and Cycling Festival in Rutland and various other sport and physical activity initiatives to get involved in locally.
