Sporting Events

Be part of the OT Sporting Community!  Whether a participant or spectator, there are a number of sporting activities for all OTs and Friends of Trent to get involved with:

Regular Fixtures

On the last Thursday in the Michaelmas term, Trent College hosts the annual Old Trident v Trent Rugby match.  This is a highly anticipated fixture with leavers from the last few years returning to take on the current Trent 1st team.  The rivalry is all in good taste and many supporters gather on the touch line.  Afternoon tea is served for players and all spectators.

Traditionally Trent hosts a mixed hockey 6s competition during the Lent term.  This event has grown over the past few years and now sees not only Old Tridents participating but staff, governors and parents also.  There is a great atmosphere and everyone is welcome to come along.  Held on a Sunday morning in March, a brunch is served for all in the wonderful dining facility, Prince Obolensky building after the matches.

The last Wednesday of the Trinity term sees the Old Tridents XI take on the Trent 1st XI in the annual cricket match.  There's nothing like the sound of leather on willow on a sunny afternoon (the weather has been kind in recent years!) and this is a fixture enjoyed by the whole of the Trent community as staff and pupils pop along and take in a few overs during the course of the afternoon, joining friends and family spectators.  All are welcome to come along to this relaxed sporting event where a traditional cricket tea is served followed by post match drinks and nibbles.

Netball matches and tennis tournaments can also be arranged and if you would like to get a team together please get in touch.


The Old Tridents' Golf Society

The OT Golf Society

The Old Tridents’ Society boasts a longstanding Golf Society, pre WWII and reconstituted in 1947.  The team participates in a number of annual competitions and continues with great success to this day.

The Society is pleased to announce that Michael Coupland (Trent 1999 to 2004) has taken over the role of OT Golf Society Captain (2016 season) from former Captain, John Bailey.
