At the University of Surrey, we share our knowledge and make new discoveries through our innovative research, business collaborations and teaching. We inspire people to do wonderful things, and help them to acquire the tools they need to make a meaningful contribution to the world.
Our world-class profile and leading reputation in teaching and research have earned the University a top five ranking in the Guardian University Guide 2017 and University of the Year in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016.
Surrey is also a valued partner for business and industry in the UK with an outstanding track record for innovation and strong international links. Its academic commitment to sport has been shown in launching its Sport and Exercise Science undergraduate degree program.
In recent years the University has made a significant investment in sport, building the world class Surrey Sports Park which opened in 2010, delivering sport and physical activity to elite athletes, University of Surrey students and the local community.
As an elite sports and training facility, Surrey Sport Park is the home to Surrey Storm netball, Surrey Scorchers basketball and Surrey Smashers badminton teams as well as being the training base for Harlequins Rugby Union and was also selected as an official training venue for the London 2012 Olympic Games and the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
Surrey Sports Park has been part of the TASS delivery network since it opened, supporting many athletes across a wide variety of sports, both studying at the University and also externally.
TASS athletes assigned to Surrey Sports Park are offered support services in a similar manner as University scholarship athletes, as the team look to help each individual achieve with both their sporting and academic aspirations.
Services include strength and conditioning, physiotherapy, sports massage, performance lifestyle support, appropriate performance testing, nutritional support and individual sports psychology support. TASS athletes will also be invited to attend performance workshops alongside University scholarship athletes covering a range of topics from anti-doping, practical nutrition strategies and planning for performance.
