Women’s sport magazine relaunches

Sportsister, the female focussed sports magazine, has relaunched as women’s sport gets a funding boost.


The new-look bi-monthly magazine will be an A4 glossy format with increased pagination and an initial print run of 50,000 and a cover price of £2.50.

The relaunch comes on the same day that Sport England, the government body that provides funding for sport in the UK announced a £10m National Lottery grant to encourage more women from disadvantaged communities and women with children to play sport.

Sportsister was launched in 2008 and offers fitness and sports news, advice and interviews with leading sportswomen with the aim of “becoming a voice for women’s sport and helping to make sport attractive and appealing to women”.

Olympic cyclist and rower, Rebecca Romero, windsurfer Bryony Shaw and snowboarder Zoe Gillings have previously appeared on its cover.

Sportsister editor and co-founder Louise Hudson says: “By raising the profile of our female sports stars and presenting women’s sport in a non intimidating way, we hope to not only give women female sporting role models but in turn to attract more women to sport.”

The magazine is also available free at sports centres, universities and schools sports events. Sportsister also features daily news and interviews online.
