As part of This Girl Can from Sport England, the University of Bristol is hosting This Girl Can week from 19-25 November 2018.

Together with the Bristol SU, we're putting on a range of free activities and events for female students (and some for female staff too) to take part in.

Whether you're super sporty or more of a social swimmer, we've got activities for everyone, with fitness classes such as yoga and bollywood dance, sports club taster sessions, a women's wellbeing workshop, and a girls-only take-over of the free weights area of the gym.

Book online


  • How do I book? Follow this link book online and log in. All students and staff have an account, even if you do not have a membership. Some club sessions are not bookable, in which case it’s a good idea to look up that club’s Facebook event or group and get in touch with them directly. 
  • Can I just turn up on the day? We recommend you book to secure a space. We can not guarantee entry if you do not book online. 
  • What should I wear? For most sessions trainers and comfortable clothing is appropriate. If your session is at the pool, take swimwear and a swim hat if you have one. If you’re going trampolining you need to wear socks and comfortable clothing that isn't too baggy.
  • Do I need to have any experience of the sport or activity to join in? No, this is the time to try something new! If you’re taking part in activities at the pool you do need to be able to swim.  
  • How much does it cost? All sessions are free! 
  • What is the Wellbeing Workshop?  This is a two-hour session about health, fitness and nutrition for sporting performance and wellbeing, with a particular focus on women. You do not need to be an elite athlete to attend, this session is for everyone! 
  • What is the Gym Takeover? For two hours we’re closing the gym and taking over! Come and chat to women who regularly use the gym and get hints on tips on how to use the equipment. Always wanted to lift weights but not sure how? We’ll show you!
