Uni Girls Can hosted their first new event of the academic year on the 11th October; Come Have a Ball.
The inaugural event of the year welcomed 25 women to The Edge sports hall where activities included bubble ball and zumball; fun fitness activities using a range of balls from footballs to medicine balls. The University’s Islamic Society were just one group who joined us for the event and were really impressed with what our Uni Girls Can Programme has to offer.
Here’s what our participants had to say:
“Being able to be in an environment where you are not judged and it isn’t all about looks is really refreshing”
“I loved working as a team and it really felt like women doing it for ourselves”
“So much in how we are raised is about unhealthy competition between women, but this event completely wasn’t like that and was just about fun.”
“At Uni I find it really hard to find time for sports but I really want to do more. It was handy that this was just on my doorstep.”

These include a yoga and healthy treats session, a women’s only boxing session and a women’s only badminton session.
