Girls only sport rekindled
A futsal and badminton league giving scores of young women the chance to play sport in a womenonly environment kicks off again next month.
The Connect2Sport Girls-only Futsal and Badminton League is back for another sevenweek season from August 13 at the Lynfield Recreation and Youth Centre.
It is run in partnership with the Young Muslim Women’s Association and the Refugee Young Action Network.
The programme is run by female coaches and the recreation centre’s indoor court is completely covered during play to break down the barriers faced by Muslim women who want to play sport.
Badminton play is from 6pm till 7pm and futsal from 7pm till 9pm on Tuesday nights at 16-18 Griffen Park Rd.
