Hi, I’m Iris and I’m this year’s Field Club President, which means I manage all of the Trinity sports captains and work alongside Chris to make sure the whole Field Club runs smoothly.

College sport hits the perfect balance between competitive spirit and fun: you get the chance to represent Trinity against other colleges every week, but you can also take it as seriously or not seriously as you like. Whether you want to get some weekly exercise as a break from work, start a new sport that you’ve never even heard of before, or become a core member of the team (and maybe next year’s captain!), college sport has something for you. It’s a fantastic opportunity to make friends with other Trinity students in a range of years, and is sure to add something unforgettable to your experience at Trinity.

Have a look at the different sports pages on the website to see what you might like to get involved with when you start at Trinity – and if you have any questions, drop me or any of the captains an email. We can’t wait to meet you all!

Proudest Sporting Moment: Beating Christchurch in Oxford at Hockey in my first year at Trinity.


I’m Christopher, your Field Club Secretary. I work alongside Iris to keep the Field Club running smoothly, handling the publicity side of the Club and keeping track of all our sports results.

I am really keen to recruit freshers (and older students too!) for any of our Field Club sports and will be trying hard to get as many people  as possible to turn up to play for Trinity. In addition, I hope to organise a successful away visit to Christchurch College, Oxford (our sister college) with a magnificent Trinity win.

My weekends are usually filled with college sports games, having captained the Men's and Mixed Hockey teams last year, and being involved with Mixed Lacrosse. I really love the social side of the Field Club, and I'll look to arrange a few socials and events to make sure everyone gets involved

I hope to see loads of you representing Trinity and the Field Club on the sports pitches - make sure you keep an eye out for our sports and social events! Please drop me an email if you’d like to know anything more.

Trin sports love,

Hi all,

I’m Christoph your BA sports representative. I look after the grad side of sport and ensure that there is plenty of sporty things for BAs to do! We will organise sport events throughout the year: Some are on a more regular basis like Saturday morning parkrun or kickabouts on the backs but we will also organise annual events like the sports day co-hosted with John's. There is also a great selection of lawn games and various balls in the BA rooms which can be borrowed from there.

If you have any questions about college sport, do drop an email - I’m always happy to hear from people keen to get involved with sport, whether it be for a kickabout on the backs or joining one of the many teams.

Sports love,



Dr Jeremy Fairbrother, a Fellow of Trinity and formerly the College’s Senior Bursar, has for a while been fully enjoying his promotion to the Field Club Treasurer role! As our Treasurer, he manages the Club's accounts, keeping our finances in the black and paying off the expenses the Club runs up over the academic year. All funding proposals ultimately are approved by the Treasurer, but please do ensure all correspondence goes first to the Field Club president at, who will help you fine-tune your proposal and pass it on.


Dr Joan Lasenby, a Fellow of Trinity in Engineering and a one-time Trinity undergraduate herself, is the woman who makes sure that our lovingly-crafted and diligently-funded sports teams have a place to play their sports. Dr Lasenby, in conjunction with our excellent groundskeeper Darren Wood, co-ordinates the use of all the College’s sporting facilities, at Trinity Old Field and beyond. She knows everything there is to know about college sport, right down to a precise history of changes to the gym’s opening hours, and runs a mean Google calendar. Questions should be directed in the first place to the Field Club president at, who will also happily forward all your messages of gratitude and praise to Dr Lasenby.
