Historic sports venue backs 'This Girl Can' campaign with free sports sessions

A historic community sports venue in Upton is backing Wirral Council's 'This Girl Can' campaign with a free afternoon of sport. Upton Victory Hall is opening its doors for an afternoon of free sporting activities, on 8 October 2016, from 1pm to 4pm, with a particular focus on ladies and young girls. The community venue has tennis, badminton, bowls and croquet facilities. Cllr Ann McLachlan, Cabinet Member for Transformation, Leisure and Culture said:- "Active Wirral is not just about getting people to use Council Leisure Centres to get active; we are getting community groups, sports clubs and charities involved as well. We are pledged to ensure everyone can access leisure opportunities as part of our 2020 council plan. Upton Victory Hall has kindly offered to open their doors and their courts, with lots of free, fun ways to get active and try new sports."

The open day will offer badminton and croquet for anyone aged 16 and over and tennis for ladies and teenage girls. All equipment including badminton rackets and croquet mallets will be provided. Both junior and adult members of the Upton Victory Hall Tennis Club will lead tennis sessions from 1pm. Rackets and balls will be provided.

Lauretta Radcliffe, UVH Executive Committee Chair says:- "We at Upton Victory Hall are really pleased to join in this initiative to encourage ladies and girls to become more involved in sports. We hope many people will come to see and try out our great facilities."

Upton Victory Hall was founded to commemorate Britain's victory in the Great War, and as a monument to those that served. Upton's war memorial was also instituted by the group.  The memorial was later moved from its original location outside the club, and now stands near Upton Library.

For more information about events planned for 'This Girl Can,' in Wirral, visit the Active Wirral Facebook Page.  In July 2016, England and Arsenal footballer Jodie Taylor gave her backing to This Girl Can in Wirral, becoming an ambassador for the campaign.
