Our organisation

The trustees are responsible for the Strategic direction of East Grinstead Sports Club.  Together, they are responsible for the effective leadership of the club and they appoint an Operating Company to run the site on behalf of the clubs and community users that enjoy the facilities.

They meet every two months with an AGM held in September every year.  The club is always on the lookout for new trustees and we encourage people from outside of the club to join so there is a balanced view around the Board table.
