Lambeth sport and fitness – action for equality

Friday 8 March 2019:  Lambeth’s Better leisure centres join organisations all over the world in support of International Women’s Day. From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we’re entering an exciting period of history where the world wants  balance – we notice its absence and celebrate its presence. A balanced world is a better world..

This Girl Can

Fewer women and girls take part in sport and physical activity than men and boys. Better want to reduce this gap, helping everyone to feel comfortable and enjoy themselves in any activity of their choice.
