Here at the University of Liverpool, we offer you the chance to get involved in the 2nd largest sport worldwide, with both men and women’s cricket clubs.
There are three men’s teams that play 50 over matches on Wednesday afternoon during the spring and summer months. The teams compete in the Northern Premier, 1A, 2A and 3A leagues in the British University and College Sports (BUCS). The teams vary in experience and skill so whatever your ability, there’s always a chance to develop in the best way possible. By playing games.
The women’s team compete in BUCS Northern 1B during the summer season, with indoor softball tournaments throughout the winter months against local teams. Conditionally, this year we have entered in the BUCS indoor programme, which will provide more opportunities for players to learn and showcase their skills throughout the year, whether that’s with experience or at a beginner level.
During the winter we train at one of the best indoor facilities in the region, St Margaret’s Sports Centre in Aigburth. This Spring we will train at Gateacre School, another fantastic facility. In the summer months, we head outdoors to train at Sefton Park CC and Liverpool CC.
They are a great opportunity to meet current members of the club and forge friendships with people in all different years at the university. We hold socials every Wednesday, including pub golf, joint socials, and the monthly AU Event with all sports teams. We also host annual events such as Christmas dinner and the end of year ball.
