Chance to Play

Chance to Play is a charity whose mission is to ‘Empower vulnerable children through exercise and sport’. They are a privately funded charity whose aim is to set up sports programmers for girls, using the tool of sport to empower, and build self-esteem.

Together with Badu sports we have developed a FREE Girls Sports Programme.

  • FREE 8 week programme
  • After school club (suitable to school timings)
  • Summer Term
  • Delivered by BADU sports coach
  • Open to girls of all ages

  • The level of self-esteem is a key to psychological well being, participation in sports leads to greater sense of achievement and empowerment. Physical activities enable girls to develop a sense of ownership of their bodies rather than regarding them as sexual objects. Increasing the number of girls’ participating in sports and exercise opens up opportunities for them to which in turn benefits the communities they are in volved with.
