*Better has teamed up with Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council this year to support the This Girl Can campaign, running between 13th–19th June 2022.

If you haven’t heard of This Girl Can before, it is a Sport England national campaign which aims to encourage and inspire more women and girls to become more physically active. Now in its seventh year, the campaign has had a huge impact on changing the attitudes and behaviours about how women and girls feel about sport and exercise which has ultimately increased the number of women and girls taking part in sport and physical activity.

This Girl Can believes there is no right way to get active so however you kick, lift, stretch, jiggle, or sprint, it's time to get moving!

We will be offering a wide range of activities across our Better facilities in Welwyn Hatfield, specifically designed for women and girls.  If you would like to participate in your favourite session, rekindle your love of sport or try something completely new with Better during the This Girl Can campaign, you will be able to join in at any of the following Centre’s;

  • Gosling Sports Park
  • Hatfield Swim Centre
  • Hatfield Leisure Centre
