Bristol Girls Can: sport for women campaign

This Girl Can is a national campaign developed by Sport England and a wide range of partner organisations.

This Girl Can is a celebration of the active women who are doing their thing no matter how they do it, how they look or even how sweaty they get.

In 2014, with the help of eight inspiring local women, we launched Bristol Girls Can. Our aim is to build a community of active women in the city and break down the barriers around exercise.

Get Inspired event: 21 October 2017

A fun and free women only event with active and relaxing sessions.

Date: 1:30pm to 5pm, Saturday 21 October 2017 

St Pauls Community Sports Academy, Newfoundland Road, Bristol, BS2 9NH

Bristol Girls who can

We asked Rife magazine, Bristol’s youth-led online platform, to create a video highlighting Bristol girls getting stuck into sport – and you don’t get much more stuck in than Roller Derby.
