Hi, I’m Ginny and I am the Sport and Student Development officer at the SU. My role is to support sports clubs, and also any area of the university which engages students in physical activity. I am also responsible for helping students develop their skills in areas outside of academic studies.
As a student, I studied Zoology alongside being heavily involved in sport. When I came to Bristol I had no particular desire to play club sport, let alone make it the focal point of my university career. However, after trying Women’s Rugby for the first time in my first Welcome WeekI was hooked, and by my second year I was club captain. In my third year I started to engage more with the SU, and became chair of the Sports Network before running to become Sport and Student Development Officer.
I am so excited for this year! I am so proud of our sports clubs and everything they do and I can’t wait to showcase them as much as I can. I am particularly passionate about engaging more students in sport and physical activity at Bristol, so watch this space.

Work with team delivering Varsity to ensure:
o A condensed and cohesive series
o That participation events do not clash with varsity day
o A countdown to varsity day
o A "meet the captains" promo
o Promotional videos
Looking at creating an 'all sport' offer, where funding and support is clearly defined across a number of levels that are applicable to all clubs
Bristol SU is currently reviewing grants allocation. Any changes will be circulated to the sports and societies exec for comment.
