GradSport is the annual competition where the current students compete against the University graduates. It is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate sport at Surrey and to relive your favourite sporting and university moments.
GradSport also helps raise money to support student sports at Surrey. Through match fees and through supporting our Forever Surrey fund, we’re able to support Team Surrey’s dream: that all students can take part in sports whilst studying at Surrey and that those who have talent can be supported to reach their true potential.
Now in its eight year, we were delighted to be able to run the event as normal for the first time since 2019. We welcomed over 900 participants across 27 sports clubs, as well as having Golf, Karting, Rowing and Snow Sports compete off-site. The event features a ‘Forever Surrey Zone’, which consists of catering stalls, red bull tent, family fun challenges/activities, food, drink, music and a seating area for participants and their guests to use throughout the event.
Surrey Alumni travel from afar to attend the event, with some even coming all the way from Canada to attend our 2022 event. This year was the largest number of sports/fixtures for a Grad Sport yet, with successful introductions for a range of new sports throughout the day which was pleasing to see.
We look forward to welcoming students and alumni back to Grad Sport 2023 and hope you can join us next year!
