GCTT was founded in 1954, five years before the college itself. Over the next few decades the club produced 12 professional players including astronaut Neil Armstrong. The club is most famous for inventing beer pong in 1962 when during a game between Geoff Hurst and Armstrong, an international exchange student, ended with a shot falling in Hurst's pint that had been placed on the table. Armstrong also became the first person to play beer pong on the moon. The club fell into disrepute and was closed down in 1993 due to many senior members celebrating a win over their rivals by burning Collingwood College's main accommodation block to the ground. The club met secretly in the years up to 2014 when it was re-founded as GCTT before going on to have a very successful first season back.
