Women’s Sport Week 2017

Women’s Sport Week returns to celebrate a fantastic Summer of Women’s Sport!

Positioned at the start of a packed summer of elite women’s sport, Women’s Sport Week takes place between 19- 25 June 2017.

This year sees a host of international women’s sporting events taking place, including the Women’s Cricket and Rugby World Cups (taking place in the UK and Ireland) and the Women’s European Football and Hockey championships, ensuring 2017 is set to be one of the greatest years yet for elite women’s sport.

What’s it all about?

This year’s campaign builds on the momentum of last year’s successful Women’s Sport Week in October 2016, and encourages the public to have fun and celebrate a vintage summer of women’s sport by watching, listening, volunteering and taking part in sporting activities.
