This Girl Can – how we’re getting more women active

Bowls Victoria is very proud to be working with VicHealth on the This Girl Can campaign to help deliver new sport and physical activity opportunities for Victorian women.

This Girl Can is there to celebrate and support Victorian women embracing physical activity in a way which suits them.

From our Pennant competition to initiatives like our Bowling With Babies program, we reckon bowls is a great sport for Victorian women to get involved in.

State bowler Courtney Gabb of Lilydale is one of the faces of the This Girl Can campaign.
