See what women really want in their sport & rec activities!

Sports Central celebrated women of all shapes, cultures and ages at the event held on Monday 18th March at Morshead Park, Redan. The group of 18 women who attended the event contributed to the discussion on how sport & recreation providers can better provide and cater to their needs.
