Tottenham Hotspur Foundation has launched a new programme, Think Fit, aimed at engaging young women in disadvantaged communities into sport and physical activity commenced this month with sessions running throughout Barnet, Enfield, Haringey and Waltham Forest.

 

Activities include casual multi-sports, ball skills/fitness, jogging, badminton and basketball and are available to all women over 16. Sessions are either free or affordable with fees only 50p - £2 per session in some clubs. Activities will run for 12 week cycles and sports will change to suit the participant's needs and wants for certain sports. Hub areas for the programme are Leyton in Waltham Forest, Broadwater Farm in Haringey, Burnt Oak in Barnet and TaB Centre Plus in Enfield.

For all information on sessions and activities contact Tottenham Hotspur Foundation on activewomen@tottenhamhotspur.com or 020 8365 5176 .

The programme is funded through Sport England's themed funding round 'Active Women' and the London Boroughs of Barnet, Enfield, Haringey and Waltham Forest with other partners including the GLL and various National Governing Bodies of Sport.

The programme is one of 20 projects funded nationally - the only one by a Football Club - Think Fit aims to tackle the gender gap in sport and target over 1,000 women over three years, delivering a mass participation legacy from London 2012.

Lucy Peirce project coordinator said, "The Foundation is experienced in providing opportunities to the community through a wide range of innovative programmes and has a fantastic record of changing lives for the better. This is a great project to offer both sporting and educational opportunities to women in disadvantaged communities across Haringey, Enfield, Waltham Forest and Barnet."
