From Monday 25 February, Royal Holloway’s Women’s Football club will be running a range of events across campus in order to promote the ‘Female Is Fierce’ campaign.
Each of the evening events being hosted, whether active or social, highlight inclusivity and place a key focus upon Royal Holloway’s female athletes. Women’s Football Charity Secretary Kate Roberts, with help from Georgia De Souza, has worked in collaboration with a number of other clubs and societies in order to bring you a week packed with things to do.
The week will begin with a collaboration with FemSoc for a discussion on ‘Intersectionality in Feminism’. A free to attend event in ARTS-G024, come along at 6pm for an hour-long event centred on an extremely important topic in modern day sport.
Tuesday evening features another exciting collaboration between two of our most active clubs. Open to all female athletes, not only members of Women’s Football, our Women’s Rugby club will be hosting a tag rugby session. This is a great opportunity to try out a new activity and meet dedicated members of one of our most enthusiastic clubs on campus. The session is free of charge, and will be held between 7pm and 8pm on Founder’s Field.
After the intensity of Tuesday evening’s tag rugby session, a joint social in Medicine on Wednesday evening will be the perfect way to unwind. All clubs are invited to join Women’s Football for what is bound to be a fun-filled night. The event will begin at 8pm and end around 11pm.
On Thursday evening, the organisers of the week’s activities will be running an open training session on the 3G pitch by the Sports Centre. Our Women’s Football club invite you to come and try out their sport, regardless of skill level, in a fun and interactive session.
At the end of the week, members of Women’s Football will be trying their hand at Mixed Martial Arts in an exciting collaborative event. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn some practical self-defence techniques from MMA Club members and to try out something completely different. Unfortunately, due to facility capacity, this event will only be open to members of RHWFC.
