5 – 13 November 2022

Female Takeover Week is a Students’ Union and Team Surrey collaboration campaign designed to encourage women of all backgrounds to get involved with sports and extracurricular activities in a safe access environment. This year, Team Surrey will be running the headline event at the Surrey Sports Park on 5th November.

If you missed the Takeover, or just want more to get involved in further activities throughout the week, there will be plenty of other opportunities for you. From sports and activities to casual socials and workshops, there is something for everyone.

All sessions will be delivered by Team Surrey clubs or student societies, meaning you will be surrounded by fellow students. Almost all activities are free and do not require sign-ups, meaning you can just turn up, meet new people, and most importantly – have fun!
