Established in 1992, Oxford Brookes University Cricket Club stands out as one of our top-performing TEAMBrookes Sports Clubs.

The club welcomes players of all abilities and offers opportunities to succeed at every level of the performance pyramid.

The club's cricket activities primarily take place at Brookes Sport in Headington, where players utilise indoor cricket nets for practice. Our talented Oxford UCCE cricketers have their training and home game venue at Oxford University's, University Parks, while the TEAMBrookes BUCS teams play their home games at Boundary Park, Didcot.


Men's UCCE Cricket

At the top of the performance pyramid is our Men's UCCE Cricket programme which caters to elite cricketers who aspire for professional contracts. Oxford is one of 5 university centres across the country and our programme is a joint venture with the University of Oxford. We were the BUCS National Championship winners in 2016 and 2019.


TEAMBrookes Men's Teams

We field two Men's sides for the outdoor British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) Midlands Conference Leagues. These leagues run mid-April through to June. These teams also compete in the annual Varsity against the University of Reading. 

Women's Cricket

Oxford Brookes students are able to play on the Oxford University Women's team, similarly to the UCCE programme. Graham Charlesworth heads up the women's programme at Oxford University (and is the UCCE head coach and supports the Men's TEAMBrookes programme). To find out more about women's cricket, please drop him an email ( or talk to the club at the Sports Fair.
