Women and girls in Basildon are being invited to attend a ‘Women Like Us’ festival, following the successful debut of the format last year.

The event is being held on Sunday 10th February between 11am and 1pm at Basildon Sporting Village.

From Body Pump and Body Combat, to Zumba and Walking Netball, the free festival will be a fun way to try out a range of sports and activities with the aim of encouraging girls and women to become more active in a fun and friendly atmosphere.

The festival in Basildon is one of a series of This Girl Can campaign and is organised by Active Essex partners; Everyone Active, Active Basildon and Active Brentwood.

They will showcase some of the activities and sports available in the local community, including Walking Hockey, Pure Abs, Boccia. The festival will include a wellness area delivered by Basildon Motivated Minds.

Juliette Raison, Active Essex Relationship Manager for South-West Essex said: “This year we are delighted to bring the festival back to Basildon to showcase the various activities in the area.

“The Women Like Us festivals are a fantastic opportunity for all women to try something new, meet likeminded people and perhaps fall in love with a new sport.”

Participants are encouraged to partake in as many taster activities sessions as they like. Sessions will be on first come first serve basis, so locals are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible.
