International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day (8 March) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

At Surrey Sports Park, we have championed women’s sport since opening in 2010. In that opening year the 2010 Women’s Rugby World Cup took place on our grounds and was broadcast to a world-wide rugby audience.

We are host to 52 Team Surrey women’s teams and have been home to two-times national champions Surrey Storm Netball, who compete in the Vitality Netball Superleague, since 2010.

As recently as last summer, we hosted the FIL Rathbone’s Women’s Lacrosse World Cup, which saw 25 nations from across the globe compete for the world title.

In 2017, we became host to league champions, Harlequins Ladies, who play a number of their home fixtures at Surrey Sports Park.

In 2018, we look to continuing our support for women involved in sport, health & fitness at Surrey Sports Park, including our members, staff and student & professional athletes.
