This Girl Can is a sassy celebration of active women everywhere and proves that whatever our size, ability or previous experience, sport can be a fun and enjoyable part of our lives.

It is a national campaign, developed by Sport England and delivered in partnership with a wide range of organisations, to address the persistent gender gap which means that more men play sport than women at every age.

Across the UK just 31.4% of women aged 14+ take part in sport or physical activity at least once a week and only 13% of Table Tennis England members are female.

Not only does regular activity improve women’s own physical and mental health, but women have a strong influence role within their own families. Girls in particular can be more influenced by sporty mums than sporting heroes or big sporting events.
