Set yourself a personal fitness challenge this new year and get active with Harlequins Ladies

Following the launch of The Game Changer, Harlequins’ annual celebration of women’s sport on March 30th, the Club wants to challenge its supporters to be Game Changers themselves this new year by getting active.

Whether you want to run your first 10k, lift a certain weight in the gym, or generally lose a few pounds, we want to hear about it because anyone, no matter what level of fitness, can be a Game Changer.

We would therefore like you to set your own personal fitness challenge and share it with us on social media by using the hashtag: #TheGameChanger. At the end of each month between now and the fixture against Gloucester Hartpury, a Game Changer of the Month will be selected.

Last March Harlequins attracted more than 4,500 spectators to its home for the Ladies match against rivals Richmond FC, setting an attendance record for a women’s match in this country. Now the Club has set its sights on breaking that record again.

Harlequins has led the way in promoting domestic women’s rugby and The Game Changer is another bold innovation from the Club as it continues to seek parity for the women’s game in the sport.

The Game Changer is a platform where ‘Heroes make History’ and is the perfect stage to showcase the heroic exploits of Harlequins Ladies’ players and coaches both on and off the field. On top of a gruelling and intense playing schedule, the Club’s players are firefighters, soldiers, teachers and business-leaders, while Karen Findlay, the squad’s co-Head Coach, is a chief inspector with the Metropolitan Police. Together, through their incredible dedication, they are helping change the sporting landscape.

The Game Changer is included in the 2018/19 Harlequins Membership but must be claimed beforehand. For non-members, tickets cost £10 for Adults and £5 for Juniors and can be purchased here.
