RTC Sports is a registered Charity which runs the RTC Sports and Leisure Centre, at Otterburn in rural Northumberland, on behalf of the Rede, North Tyne and Coquet valley local communities. We are also a limited company.

We have a small number of part-time Staff, a Steering Group that helps us know what the local community want, and Volunteers who help to maintain the building and grounds or run events and classes. We are in a good financial position and pay for a Bookkeeper and coaches.

The RTC Centre works to

  • Support an active community, and to be community-led
  • Provide facilities for recreation and leisure time, for the purpose of relaxation and to improve conditions of life for our local communities
  • Promote physical and mental wellbeing, by offering physical, social and arts activities, as well as opportunities to volunteer for the community


Trustee characteristics we are looking for today

We are seeking three Trustees. We would particularly welcome people, of all ages and backgrounds, who have skills in the financial, digital and marketing areas. If a person prefers to oversee, then the Chair or Company Secretary positions are also possible. Board meetings are usually monthly, on an evening between 7 and 9, the day is flexible.

We hope to recruit active, responsible people who enjoy working as a team, and who will help us to continue to increase the frequency and diversity of our current offering.


This is a great time to be joining us, as we are moving forward rapidly.  We're in the midst of a rebranding too, and the logo you see here is our new one.  For now, you can still see the old logo on our website:
