Western Springs Football Club hosted its first ever, junior girls Football Festival event on Sunday 15 April, with over 100 players aged 5-16 taking part.
The event was to put the focus on junior girls’ football and make it special for all participants with the overall aim of growing women’s football within the club.
“We wanted to run an event for our junior and youth girls from ages five to 16 and we wanted to show that we support the girls and to do something different and a bit special for them.”
The focus was for the girls to enjoy the sport and grow with it.
The event was supported by local businesses - with over 100 prizes and giveaways.
The event was supported by Lululemon, Players Sports, Stirling Sports - St Lukes, Tank Juice, House of Travel - Ponsonby, Shut the Front Door, NZ Breakers, Vodafone - Ponsonby, Seabreeze Cafe, Malt, Westmere Pharmacy and Spark Arena, who all played a huge part in the success of the event.
