There has never been a better time to engage girls in PE and School Sport, between 2017 and 2019 England will be host to three consecutive women's World Cups:
ICC Women's World Cup: 26th June - 23rd July 2017
Women's Hockey World Cup: July/August 2018
Netball World Cup: 12th - 21st July 2019
The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), England Hockey and England Netball have launched TeamUp, a three year campaign to maximise the legacy of the World Cups focusing on participation in 7 to 16 year olds, as well as building a broader fan base for women's team sports.
To raise the profile of the TeamUp campaign, and girls participation, we have been given a TeamUp chain Teddy Bear. We have named her TED – Teamwork, Enthusiasm, Determination, values we’re sure schools all instil and expect from their students when playing fixtures and during training.
TED has started her journeythis week with Warriner Y8 Hockey team, and supported the girls at their recent fixture. The girls passed her on to their opposition, and so the chain begins.
We're looking forward to following TED on her adventure! Read more
