An interfaith netball tournament in Maidenhead will bring women together from different backgrounds and cultures.
As part of Interfaith Week, the tournament is due to be held at Cox Green Leisure Centre in Highfield Lane on Sunday, November 24, from 1-5pm.
The free event has been organised by Tameena Hussain, a volunteer from Slough-based charity Aik Saath.
Tameena is also working with Sergeant Helen Kenny from Thames Valley Police to promote the event as a way to help strengthen the relationship between women and the force.
Sgt Kenny hopes it will encourage more women to come to the police with issues they can resolve.
"Sport is a great way to break down barriers and build trust," she said.
Tameena added: "The event is open to all women from different backgrounds and is not about being competitive, it’s about having fun and making new friends."
Interfaith Week runs from November 17-24 and celebrates bringing people together to improve cohesion in diverse communities.
