We have here all the conditions to have a pre-season with everything that is necessary: good pitches, good facilities, good food, everything that we need to focus on what is only and solely training. An excellent gym, swimming pools and an indoor one, bicycles, ... everything you need to have a quality pre-season, whatever the level we are talking about."

Browns Sports and Leisure Club has become an important place to us. This is our eight season in a row here. We keep coming back.

your own way
among the many faces
of a busy world
may you always remember
the path that leads back,
... back to the important places"
As the 1st XV and 2nd XV, we are about to start out cup competition campaigns. Last year we won all four of the cup competitions in Ulster last season. Players from all four of these winning squads had trained at Browns.
We want to succeed again this year, and you help us to succeed.
We will keep coming back to the important places."
"To all the staff at Browns,
Thank you once again for the opportunity to avail of the excellent facilities at your resort.
Both boys and staff thoroughly enjoyed their time here mid-season of a busy Ulster-Schools rugby schedule.
The training opportunity has allowed us to build in complete downtime during our Christmas holidays which previously could not have happened. Hope to see you again. Regards"
