Sportsister, the heartbeat of women's sport.

We love sport and we want to show women and girls that getting active and being sporty can be cool and fun as well as great for the body and soul!

Our Tumblr site showcases what we think is good, fun, cool and exciting in the world of sport.

Expect great visuals, videos and lots of fun stuff!

Genius initiative: Empty shops turned into squash courts

We love a bit of creative thinking at Sportsister and the news that empty high street stores are being transformed into ‘pop-up’  (temporary) squash courts strikes us as a stroke of genius!

Ever wished you could learn some neat snowboarding moves from one of the world’s best riders? Now is your chance.

Torah Bright has a pipe gold medal in Vancouver and a TTR World title as well as being one of the most photographed snowsport athletes out there. So who better to teach you how to pull a backside 540 in the pipe?

Even if you are not hitting the snow this winter, or won’t be going anywhere near a pipe when you do, it makes a great watch. Enjoy!

If you’re a fan of the white stuff then we’re sure you’ll love the latest instalment in Roxy’s series of team rider podcasts as much as we do!

The video features epic back-country skiing and snowboarding from 2012 Free Ride World Tour vice champion Margot Rozies, Aline Bock, Andrea Binning and Lena Stoffel riding powder in the mountains of South East Europe. Boards at the ready?!
