Women In Sport Breakfast – celebrating International Women’s Day


Join us for breakfast to help celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD) on Friday 8 March, from 07:45-09:15 in the Le Hocq Suite at the Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel.

This informal networking event aims to increase, promote and celebrate females in sport and physical activity.

Joining us will be three inspirational sport leaders who will share their stories about how they are successfully breaking down barriers for females to access local sport and physical activity. There will then be a panel discussion giving you a great opportunity to gain some valuable insight and tangible tools to use in your own sports setting.

Our IWD panel will consist of…

Jennifer Neill who is passionate about supporting new and expectant parents to embrace and sustain their health, physical activity and wellbeing. Through education and exercise, Jennifer offers life coaching for mums and delivers ‘Strong as a Mother’ initiatives to encourage female participants to be and remain active.

Jersey Ladies Golf Development Group who are fresh off the podium after being recognised and celebrated at England Golf’s centenary awards this month as the Women’s and Girls Trailblazers for 2024! The group, made up of passionate female volunteers from the three smaller local golf clubs (Les Mielles, St Clement and Les Ormes), came together in 2022 with the aim of tackling a declining female membership across the island with great success.

Serena Kersten MBE, a former England Netball captain, has played a pivotal role in developing a more centralised programme for the Jersey Netball Association to increase enjoyment and participation for local players, coaches and potential umpires. Developing the new ‘Youthnets’ initiative whilst managing her performance athletes within Team Jets, Serena is passionate about and making netball more accessible for more islanders by changing perceptions and improving culture.
