Sports Facilities and Gym

How to access the college gym and sports grounds

The College Gym and Sports Grounds, including squash, badminton, and tennis courts, are located in Old Field, on Grange Road.

To sign up for gym access 

You must email [email protected] to request an induction session. After completion of the induction session, pay the gym membership fee of £48/year; the year runs Jan-Dec. Payment may be pro-rated if you join part-way through the year (£12 per quarter/term). Payment is by bank transfer as follows:

  • Name: Trinity College
  • Sort code: 20-17-68
  • Account: 30052035
  • Reference: [Your Surname]/Gym
  • Bank: Barclays

Please let the bursary know when you have made your payment ([email protected]).

Within a few days of receiving payment, the Accommodation Office will then activate your card for access to the gym, pavilion, and changing rooms; the card will update once it has been touched to the “salto point” at the Porters’ Lodge. The gym is only for members, and no guests may be brought in.

To book the sports grounds and courts

Please contact the Field Club Treasurer ([email protected]) to request authorisation for the online court booking system.

Your registration will give you access to the squash, badminton, and tennis courts, through your MyTrin account. There is no booking system for use of the sports fields, which are normally available on a first-come, first-served basis, and their use is currently free of charge. Official College sports teams, however, have priority in all cases. Please contact the groundsman, Darren Wood, in advance.

You may bring guests onto the courts and fields, but at least half of your party must be of society members who have registered or of other Trinity members. If you wish to bring in a party that is a majority of non-Trinity people onto the courts or fields, you must gain permission to host an ‘outside group’ in advance from the groundsman, Darren Wood; a modest additional charge will be applied.

Please note that bicycles should be left on the concrete by the pavilion, not taken over the grass to the tennis courts.
