Women’s Sport
Week 2015

We launched Lunges and Lycra in 2012 after becoming more than a little bored of male-dominated sports pages so we obviously reckon that Women’s Sport Week is a pretty awesome idea. If you haven’t already heard all about it here’s a round-up of what it is, what we’re doing to support it and how you can get involved.


What is it?

Women’s Sport Week is 7 days from the 1-7 June to celebrate, raise awareness and increase the profile of women’s sport.  The week is being led by Women in Sport, supported by National Governing Bodies, Sky Sports, the BBC, Sport England and supporters from across the sport sector.


What are we doing to support women’s sport?

We’ll be shouting about it on social using #WSW2015, buying our tickets to some awesome women’s events this summer and finally we’ll be trying some new sports. On Thursday 4th we’re off to learn how to kick a ball at an FA Just Play session at Kennington, London – come join!
