As a rugby scholar and academy player you'll have training session both at the Trailfinders Sports Club and Brunel University London. You'll also have access to the sport and recreational facilities at both places.
The Trailfinders Sports Club, home of Ealing Trailfinders Rugby Club, the Trailfinders Rugby Academy and the Trailfinder Trojans Academy, is a 5,000 seater stadium. The club is one of west London’s premier sports venues, set in 20 acres of landscaped gardens. There are two 4G pitches, two grass pitches, floodlit, three gyms, an analysis suite, a team relaxation room, private chefs and a medical area which have all been key components towards the success of the scholarship programme. The facilities at Trailfinders Sports Club are constantly expanding. The newest addition is a new state-of-the-art indoor training centre which includes a 3G rugby pitch, changing rooms and offers an alternative method to training for the academy players.
Brunel's state-of-the-art sports facilities rank among the best university facilities in the UK. The multi-million pound Indoor Athletics Centre (IAC) is the centrepiece of the performance sports facilities. As one of the best indoor training facilities in the country, the IAC is a UK Athletics Regional Performance Centre and is the chosen training venue for many of the country’s finest athletes.
The outdoor Sports Park is home to a 400-metre athletics track with tennis and netball courts, pitches for football, rugby and hockey and an FA-registered 3G pitch. The sports park is serviced by the Sports Pavilion that boasts numerous team changing rooms with integrated showers, unisex toilets and catering services. The campus gym and sports centre host four training zones which incorporate the following; a cardio area, a resistance zone, a free weights section, a classes studio, a climbing wall, and different halls from netball to squash. The university has a big park and lots of green spaces, including an outdoor gym and plenty of room for outdoor exercise. At Brunel there is also a new performance gym built specifically for our academy players, as well as a 3G pitch that enables the scholarship programme to emulate the expansive style of rugby.
