'Let's Go Girls' campaign gives women the chance to try new fitness activities for free

News release from 10/09/2018

CAMBRIDGE women and girls aged 12 and over are being invited to get active and take part in sports and fitness sessions as part of a female physical activity initiative this month.

As part of this campaign, Cambridge City Council is organising three ‘Let’s Go Girls’ Festival events, on:

  • Monday 10 September 6pm-9pm at Trumpington Sports Centre, Trumpington Community College, Lime Avenue CB2 9HB (for women aged over 16)
  • Thursday 27 September 3.30pm-6pm at Netherhall School, Queen Edith’s Way CB1 8NN (for female secondary school students aged 12-18)
  • Sunday 30 September 10am-1pm at Chesterton Sports Centre, Gilbert Road CB4 3NY (for women aged over 16)

At these events women and girls attending will have the opportunity to take part in a range of activities including taster exercise classes, sports sessions, massages and nutrition workshops.

In addition this month, female Cambridge residents aged 16 and over have the opportunity to sign up for a Let’s Go Girls card. This gives people the chance to attend a free session in each of four different categories –  fitness, sport, combat and swimming – at a number of local participating sports centres, gyms and clubs.

Cllr Anna Smith, Executive Councillor for Communities, said: “The Let’s Go Girls Campaign offers a great opportunity for women and girls to sample some enjoyable and exciting new activities for free in a non-competitive and friendly environment.

“The council is committed to helping all Cambridge residents become more active in fun and interesting ways.

“Exercise is great for us physically and mentally. As someone who did not really enjoy sports at school, I have since found plenty of ways to exercise that I really enjoy.

“There really is something for everyone, and I would encourage any girls and women aged 12 and over to get involved in the Let’s Go Girls campaign this month.”
