Coronavirus, an update from Active Cornwall

Cornwall Sports Partnership team up with Whirlwind Sports to help women & girls get active!

Whirlwind Sports

We want to encourage more women and girls to get active here in Cornwall and to help us we have teamed up with one of the biggest sports outlets in Cornwall, Whirlwind Sports.

Based throughout Cornwall with an outlet on Lemon Quay, Truro. Whirlwind Sports feel privileged to be part of the #ThisGirlCan campaign.

Mike Pope, Marketing Coordinator from Whirlwind Sports said: 'Working in a sports chain we see a vast amount of ladies frequently purchasing a variety of sporting items. It was a surprise to all of us when the research behind the creation of the campaign by Sport England revealed the vast majority of women across the UK are reluctant to take part in regular exercise. It's only when you learn the staggering statistic that 75% of these women have expressed they do in fact want to be more active but choose not to out of fear of judgment'.

'#ThisGirlCan has certainly opened our eyes here at Whirlwind Sports, we would like women of all ages who become inspired by this campaign and looking to become more active to drop in because we want to help these women achieve their goals.

They will be supporting us on our 2 day event that's 'made just for women & girls' on Tuesday 31st May & Wednesday 1st June 2016 with a 20% discount at Whirlwind Sports for all women who complete a short lifestyle survey.


'Get Active in the City' will be held in Lemon Quay, Truro where fitness & activity providers from around Cornwall including Anytime Fitness, Vixystrawberry Pole School, Bodyworks, Inspiration Dance and more will be giving away free taster sessions, discounted memberships plus much more. 

Natasha Howard, event organiser from Cornwall Sports Partnership said; "Following last year's great response to this special 2 day event, we are excited to bring it back to Truro again.  We are delighted that Whirlwind Sports are supporting the event and the inspiring This Girl Can message and are looking forward to working with them to help promote opportunities for females to get active".

There will also be a chance to have a go at various sports over the 2 days such as netball, dancing, table tennis, a mini Race for Life Pretty Muddy Obstacle Course plus your chance to win at our Netball Shooting Challenge!

The event is part of the national #ThisGirlCan Campaign created by Sport England which is designed to inspire women and girls to get moving, regardless of shape, size and ability. 

So if you're visiting Truro shopping or just having lunch, come along and take a look at some of the great opportunities for women & girls to 'Get Active in the City'.
