Girls Marching to Fitness in the Vale

20 February 2015

Sports clubs within the Vale of Glamorgan are hosting free tasters and open days throughout March to help encourage women and girls of all ages to be more active.


As part of the March on Girls scheme women of all ages can sample rowing, tennis, football and a range of other activities. The Vale of Glamorgan Sports Development team will be promoting the sessions via social media throughout March using the hashtag #MarchOnGirls.


Ben Williams, Active Young People Co-ordinator for the Vale of Glamorgan Council, explained the inspiration for the scheme: “Sports clubs in the Vale offer a wide range of ways in which women of all ages can get involved in sport. This campaign is about helping them to promote the activities that are on offer. We want to show what’s available for women and girls and hope the #MarchonGirls campaign will increase participation for all ages.”
