The Club is open every day. There are 5 main sports played at the Trojans - Rugby, Hockey, Squash, Cricket and Football. There a range of other games and past times taking part on site. With over a 1000 multi sports members we are run volunteers for the benefit of the community.

The Trojan Club is a community-based amateur sports club. This means we are run by the members, for the members and are open to everyone. We are probably the best equipped club of this type in Hampshire, and have probably the most members. We receive no ongoing support from local or national sports authorities, and are totally reliant on our members subscriptions, bar takings and fund-raising for our continued survival. 

We are very fortunate that Stefano runs his catering business from the clubs kitchens. This means that all the food provided at the club after games, at festivals, or at the end of season dinners is of a top standard. It also means that should the members want private functions done either at their home, or at the club, then Stefs team will be able to provide them.

Trojans is owned and run by its members who come from all across the community, and anyone can join. At the end of each year the Committee reports to the Annual General Meeting, and positions are filled. The general committee is made up of the Chairman, Vice chair, Secretary, Treasurer and President, plus up to three floor members, and the chairs of the four main sections.
