Girton Alumni Sports Association (GASA) promotes sporting networks between alumni and students. It recognises and encourages the qualities of teamwork, organisational capability and mental and physical wellbeing which come from sport. It was launched at a special Reception in the Long Room of Lord’s Cricket Ground, in March 2010.

GASA’s Honorary President is Professor Sarah Springman (1975) and GASA is being led by Seb Fox (1982).

The John Marks Sports Pavilion


Around 800 alumni and supporters have generously donated over the last decade towards the Girton Sports Pavilion Campaign. Planning permission was granted for an uncompromisingly modern design and  construction of the Pavilion began in September 2012. The project was completed in the summer of 2013 and has been named the John Marks Sports Pavilion.

As ever, we are immensely grateful to all of our donors, without whose generosity this project would have been impossible. Those who gave £500 or more have been recognised on a Donor Board in the pavilion and additionally have become members of A Great Campaign.
