Sports Facilities

At Old Field, a few minutes’ walk from the Great Gate, Trinity has its own facilities for football, rugby, cricket, and netball. Four squash courts, a badminton court, and nine all-weather tennis courts can be booked free of charge. The hockey pitches are at another site a short distance from the College.

The rugby, football, cricket and men’s and women’s hockey teams compete in the inter-college leagues and knock-out competitions and the larger clubs often go on tour during vacations. First-team standards are good, but enough teams are fielded to include anyone who is keen to play.

Basketball, lacrosse, volleyball, women’s rugby, and five-a-side football are also played at College level. A variety of other sports – athletics, cross-country, swimming, golf, water polo, and fencing, for example – are organised on a University-wide basis.

All sports clubs at Trinity bar rowing are part of the Field Club, Trinity’s main sports society.

1st and 3rd Rowing Club
1st and 3rd Rowing Club

Rowing is a sport traditionally associated with Cambridge. It is worth noting that the majority of students who row have never done so before coming to University. The College’s boats compete under the title of First & Third Trinity. The name recalls two independent Trinity Boat Clubs that were founded in the 19th century and later amalgamated; the Second Boat Club has disappeared. The College puts out as many as ten men’s and four women’s eights in the Cambridge May races, while both eights and fours are entered at Henley and other regattas.
