Women's Sport Network started life as a sponsored project to help raise the profile of women's sport and SportsWomen through the production of a calendar in 2011. The success of sponsoring this unique sector has identified a demand for a focus for women sports, SportsWomen and events. The lack of publicity, support, investment, awareness and promotion in women's sport is well documented – if not well publicised!! The feeling after the hugely successful launch of The Women's Sporting Calendar last year led to many of the women involved saying – "what now?".
We have been working with a number of hugely enthusiastic NGBs, sports clubs and organisations to make this website a focus for women's sport. Most of the work is done by young sportswomen who want to make women's sport more significant, attractive and available. They are keen to work with all bodies – commercial and altruistic to make a difference and will consider ALL reasonable offers of partnering, sharing information, joint mailing, cost/revenue, joint promotion/sharing to make that difference. You can meet them in our ABOUT section – many of them are looking for jobs in sports management/marketing/communication and are doing this work to get experience and, increasingly, because they believe passionately in what they are trying to achieve.
This hybrid, self-starting group is a 'unique' for organisations and companies seeking to share resources, ideas and traction to crystallise the potential offered by women's sports – for health, community, fun, equality, confidence and egalitarian reasons. If you would like to discuss how our energy and tenacity can work with yours please do make contact. If you are an individual and want to get involved, access our PARTICIPATE section from the main site navigation.
