Extra Cover by Penny Hopkins

Penny Hopkins takes a view of sport from its history to modern day and current issues surrounding women sport and their place in sporting history.

Penny is a freelance journalist and writer from the UK, specialising in women’s sport.  Her passions are cricket and the political and social issues surrounding women’s sport.  She believes that women are underrepresented in all areas of sport, that it’s time the balance was redressed and is proud to be helping to do just that.  Whether it be at elite level, in the boardroom, in the media centre, on the touchline, at grassroots level or at the local gym, women in sport should be recognised for their expertise, knowledge and talent. 

Penny writes, blogs and campaigns on issues surrounding women’s sport and also loves reporting on live sport. Penny would have loved a cricketing career, but this was never offered as option when she was growing up, so now she plays netball and badminton with vigour and passion.  She has her own website pennyjhopkins.wordpress.com and writes on women’s views and news for Women’s Sports UK.
