Club celebrates International Women’s Day with virtual football session

Mon 08 March 2021, 20:53|Tottenham Hotspur

To celebrate International Women’s Day, the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation held a virtual football session on Monday.

Women’s First Team players Lucy Quinn and Ria Percival joined our former defender Renee Hector in a virtual session teaching participants new football skills, drills and tactics.

Lucy and Ria were on hand to provide advice and words of encouragement to the group and, after the session, took part in a Q&A where participants had the opportunity to ask questions of their own.

Club celebrates International Women’s Day with virtual football session

• To celebrate International Women’s Day, Women’s First Team players Lucy Quinn and Ria Percival joined a virtual football session with the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation.
• As part of ‘Making Sport a Daily Habit’ programme, participants were taught new football drills, skills and tactics.
• Tottenham Hotspur Foundation continues to run a range of projects all year round to create opportunities for women and girls.

The walking football session is part of the Foundations ‘Making Sport a Daily Habit’ programme, which is designed to encourage people who are not usually active to incorporate exercise into their daily routine.

The Tottenham Hotspur Foundation has been delivering sessions virtually throughout the pandemic, helping participants to stay connected.

The Foundation runs a range of projects all year round to create opportunities for women and girls to access sport, including delivering football sessions at Haringey Sixth Form College, where girls between 16-18 years old can take part in inclusive drills and matches.

In partnership with Metropolitan Police Haringey, the Foundation has been delivering a 10-week Health and Wellbeing programme and to celebrate International Women’s Day, held an exclusive session to highlight the importance of looking after our mental and physical health during lockdown.

Speaking after of the session, Lucy said: “It was great to join Renee and the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation in helping to deliver their virtual football session. It’s important we celebrate International Women’s Day and recognise how far women and women’s football has come. The Foundation are doing excellent work in creating opportunities for women and girls, and it was lovely to be able to talk to some of them today.”
