Your First Week with Us
Already sold on joining Trinity’s most successful club? Here’s what to expect in your first week with us.
Remember: all you need to bring is normal gym gear and sports shoes, we provide everything else.
The majority of our members have never held a sword before joining, so all novices are taught from first principles by those with a wealth of experience teaching absolute beginners.
We wouldn't have lasted this long without being able to throw a good party. With weekly events, annual trips, the odd ball, and some more secretive occasions, we've got the social scene covered.
A Taste of Things to Come
With a packed competition calendar and a progressive club structure, you'll learn the ins and outs of club trips to competitions, the perks of your membership, and the committee.
