HELP US RETAIN THE GRAD SPORT CUP

Grad Sport is in its fourth year, and the gloves are off. The Alumni regained its title last year and are proud to hold the winning cup however we need your support to keep our status as Grad Sport champions.

Grad Sport is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate sport at Surrey and allow you to relive your student sporting moments; Grad Sport also helps raise money to support student sport at Surrey.

Through your match fee and various crowdfunding opportunities, 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.

This year Grad Sport is excited to be held as part of the Festival of Wonder which brings a wonderful programme of free activities for all your friends and family while celebrating th 50th Anniversary of the University of Surrey. Why not make a day of it and come back to see what your University now has to offer.
