Cambridge University Cricket Club

CUCC has a rich history dating back to 1820.  Fenner’s Cricket Ground has been the home of CUCC since 1848.  CUCC has produced many great cricketers over the years, including 21 test captains, 62 other test players and noted senior administrators.

Nowadays, CUCC is a club of over 100 students.  The men's side of the club is made up of the Men's Blues (1st XI), the Crusaders (2nd XI), and the Colleges XI (3rd XI).  The women's side of the club consists of the Women's Blues (1st XI), and the Wayfarers Development Programme.

Training takes place throughout winter in order for the Summer season to be as competitive as possible.  The highlights of the season are the annual Varsity Matches against Oxford.  One-Day fixtures for the Men’s and Women’s Blues are held at Lord’s, and a four-day fixture is played by the Men’s Blues, at Fenner’s or The Parks.  Since 2008. Twenty20 Varsity Matches are also played between the two Universities.  Both Blues teams also play in BUCS leagues and a range of friendly fixtures; the season is always busy.  The Crusaders also play in BUCS, and have their annual Varsity Matches against the OUCC Authentics.  The Colleges XI play local friendly matches, and the Wayfarers Development Programme helps less experienced female cricketers improve their skills to hopefully become Blues in the future.

For college cricketers, CUCC stages the annual ‘Cuppers’ competition; a limited overs knock-out competition between the Cambridge Colleges, with the final played at Fenner’s.
