CUWCC

Welcome from CUWCC

The University of Cambridge has a rich history of both men’s and women’s cricket and Cambridge University Women’s Cricket Club (CUWCC) gives students the chance to be a part of this tradition, with records dating back to the 1940s, whilst also promoting and participating in a rapidly developing women’s sport.

CUWCC caters for complete beginners and experienced cricketers studying at Cambridge University. We hold two training sessions a week in the indoor cricket school at Fenner’s during the Michaelmas and Lent terms, one of which is aimed at introducing new players to the game, the other aimed at more experienced cricketers. We also hold an intensive pre-season training week just before the start of the Summer term, giving everyone the chance to consolidate what they have learnt before the season gets under way. During the summer, we train outdoors twice a week.

We play a range of matches, including MCC, the Army and other clubs. Cambridge University students are eligible to play in the one-day University Match against the Oxford Women at the prestigious Lord’s Cricket Ground for which a half Blue is awarded. Full Blues are awarded to players who meet the relevant performance criteria. We also play a Twenty20 fixture against Oxford which alternates between Cambridge and Oxford each year.

Cambridge University and Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) are jointly entered into the MCCU programme, giving promising players access to top level coaching and competitive cricket alongside studying for their degree. Every year the MCCU enters a single team, comprising ARU and Cambridge University players, into the BUCS Midlands 1 A league to play several 30 over matches against other universities.

If you have any questions about the club, or are interested in joining, please email the CUWCC President. You can also like our Facebook page to stay up to date with the club’s latest news.
