Clubs & Societies
Purpose: to ensure Trinity Hall continues to provide the necessary facilities for students to take part in sport, music or drama at the highest level and further develop their talents.
Current focus: The College's boat club has ambitious but achievable plans following their 185th anniversary, to purchase new equipment and build a further extension to the boathouse to improve training. We need to resurface our tennis courts and update and improve the equipment in the College gym.
Why support clubs and societies?
Taking part in College clubs and societies is an integral part of University life and helps students develop an all-round education and skills that will help them when they graduate. Our students are not just talented academically: many have gone on to become international athletes - even Olympic medal winners - or award winning actors; the support from Trinity Hall enabled them to develop their talents.
Over the years the Club has had ups and downs, but what remains a constant for THBC is the team spirit that exudes from its most junior to most senior members. Right now, the Club is on a real high,and as former members we need to do all we can to encourage those crews to advance their progress."
