Athletics & Cross-Country
Athletics Cuppers is held twice a year, in Michaelmas and Trinity terms. Thanks to huge pride and love of stash in Trinity, our turnout surpasses all the other inferior colleges and we have won absolutely everything in recent times. Let's keep winning! If you are interested in taking the sport more seriously, the University Athletics Club runs regular training sessions. OUAC Website

Do you like thrills? Do you like speed? Do you want to be part of the fastest racquet sport in the world? Trinity is looking to set up a badminton team and enter the university competitions for the first time in years! All abilities welcome! Club-style sessions will be organised either once or twice a week depending on numbers, and hopefully we can show the other colleges who's best!
Basketball is literally the best sport ever, and Trinity is where its at. Most of our all-star players only started playing when they arrived at Trinity, so all abilities welcome. The Mens League runs during Michaelmas and Hilary term, and Mens and Womens Cuppers run in Trinity term. Lucy Dean and Alex Attard-Manche are heading up the Womens team this year, so get in touch with them if you want to get involved. Trainings are generally on the weekend, with games on weekdays.
The most successful Boat Club on the river! (Summer Eights, 2012). If you are interested in rowing for Trinity, or would like any more information please see See the Boat Club website
Contact Charles McMillan for more details.
What better way to spend your summer days/avoid revising than joining TCCC? A friendly and relaxed atmosphere coupled with a healthy sense of competition make it a club well worth being a part of. Matches take place throughout Trinity term and with both league and cuppers commitments there will be plenty of opportunity for some cricket. Please do get in touch if there are any questions or you want to sign up.
Contact Nick Fanthorpe for more details.
Summer term sees the lawns swamped with eager students trying their hand at that majestic game of croquet. Trinity has a fine tradition in the university-wide cuppers competition (which incidentally is the largest croquet competition in the world), with Trinity consistently entering about 15 teams each year. All are encouraged to participate and there are plenty of opportunities to pick up some skills at the start of Trinity term. A "How To Play" session will be organised in the first two weeks or Trinity term for novices and those who aren't used to official rules. An email will be sent out at the end of Hilary term to find out who is interested in entering Cuppers. An intra-College tournament may also occur.

Football at Trinity is relaxed, and although matches are competitive a great deal of experience isn't necessary and it is more orientated around having fun. We have two teams and a number of social events throughout the year.
FIRST TEAM: Games are most Fridays in Michaelmas and Hilary term. Contact Fred Ellis for details.
SECOND TEAM: Matches usually on weekends. Contact Rob Gray for details.
Trinity have a joint women's football team with LMH, we play on Sundays, its really relaxed and great fun, email email@example.com and ask to be added to the shiny new facebook group if you are interested!

Do you play hockey already? If not, do you want to give it a go? If the answer is yes to either of those questions then join the hottest team in college sport right now. In the brief span of only three seasons TCHC has gone from the bottom division of college hockey to winning the premier league only last year; an achievement that saw us play St. Catherine's College Cambridge as part of the warm up program for last year's varsity match. There are regular matches (usually on Sundays) in both the league and cuppers. The Men's team is in fact in essence a mixed team and girls are very welcome indeed. There is also a Women's team that is usually entered into cuppers and a mixed cuppers competition in Trinity term.
Contact Nick Fanthorpe for more details.
Mixed netball at Trinity is played in teams of seven, with a maximum of one boy on the court at a time. We play matches once or twice weekly against other colleges at nearby St Hilda's and LMH netball courts with several day tournaments also scattered throughout the academic year. Matches are a great chance to let of some steam, get to know your fellow Trinitarians and have lots of fun. There's no pressure of a coach or turning up to countless practices, so college netball is a great thing to do if you want to get involved in college life but can't afford a huge time commitment. Netball at trinity also has a great social side, with team recently organising several crew dates with other Oxford groups, including oxford's Out of the Blue. Whether you're a boy or a girl, and no matter what your previous experience of netball is, please get in contact with us and we'll pop you on the mailing list!
Whilst pool in Trinity has, in past years, been limited to those who spend too much time "having a break" from work in the JCR, the College is now entering league and cuppers competitions. The possibility of booking two or three 'practice sessions' a term at local pool clubs is also being looked into.
Trinity have their own rugby team that is in its first season in the leagues, following a split from LMH (who we still still have some links with). We are starting off in the bottom division, but we have hopes for rapid promotion whilst keeping the fun in the side. We train once or twice a week as needed, usually on weekends, and we play on Thursday afternoons. Get in touch with me if you want to get involved.

We have 2 hard courts and 3 grass courts at our sports ground at Marston Road. They're free of course and if you would like to use the hard courts you need to book them on this website first, and sign for the court key at the lodge before you go. If you intend to use the grass courts then you will need to sign for the main gate key at weekends, but it will be left open in the week. There is a tennis afternoon on Sundays at 2-4pm at Marston Road throughout Trinity Term, turn up with a 4, drink Pimms and play some doubles. For those who would like to play matches there are League and Cuppers teams for both ladies and men. There is also a tournament for members of Trinity in Trinity term. There is a pair of spare rackets and a tin of balls in the lodge, which anyone can use. You will need to sign for these with the key. If you would like to join in the practice games, or play matches, please contact Cameron Mckelvie (Men's) or Elly Whitaker (Women's).

Trinity Ultimate Frisbee
We enter 2009 off the back of a record breaking season last year for Trinity Ultimate Frisbee. In fact, our bounding enthusiasm and dazzling yellow kit lead to quite simply the best display of results our college has ever produced. Established in 2008, Trinity Ultimate Frisbee is also proud to boast being undeniably the most popular sport Trinity has to offer. In no other sport that I am aware is getting this muddy a higher priority than even the match itself. I have no doubt many freshers will have never heard of the sport, let alone played it, but that is entirely the norm. You are still all warmly welcome and I strongly encourage you to join us in the park and give it a go, if not the Freshers' social will definitely be worth coming to!
