Return to Activity guidance from England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB)
Oxford Brookes University Cricket Club, established in 1992, is one of our top-performing clubs. The club consists of approximately 50 students in total, accommodating cricketers across all abilities and helping those who want to improve.
The club trains every Wednesday at Brookes Sport Headington, from 9:00am – 11:00am. Training sessions involve net practices, fielding drills, 5-a-side football and general fitness exercises. In warmer weather, they use the astroturf outside in order to be able to conduct fielding practices more expansively. Each session is run by an ECB qualified coach, with specific focus on batting, bowling, wicket-keeping and fielding in order to allow for optimum performance every game, as well as general improvement.
Outside of training, OBUCC fields two indoor teams that compete in BUCS level competitions during the winter, and two sides (1st and 2nd XI) for the outdoor matches which run from mid-April through to June. It is the club’s aim to achieve a long-awaited and well-earned promotion in the 2018/2019 season, with some promising new talent amongst the new intake.

The club consists of 1 mixed sex competition team who both compete in BUCS competition. We then have a large recreational and fitness group of club members who attend sessions as well.
Training takes place in the nets of the Sports Hall at the Centre for Sport in Headington for Semester 1 (Monday 14th September - Sunday 6th December):
The MCCU programme is an amazing opportunity for elite level cricketers who aspire to become professional. Oxford is one of just six university centres across the country where an elite team of coaches work with players daily from November to June across all disciplines: Batting, Fast Bowling and Spin Bowling, Fielding, Wicket-Keeping and Conditioning.
Every summer, players selected for the MCCU have the opportunity to play against some of the best players in the world through our County Programme. In 2015, this included: Kevin Pieterson, Steve Finn, Nick Compton, Chris Tremlett and Sam Robson among others, at the stunning University Parks.
Players demonstrating outstanding personal qualities, real commitment and progress can apply for a sports scholarship award. These are awarded in January and February by the MCCU coaches.
MCCU training takes place in the nets at the Headinton Centre for Sport on a Wednesday morning from 7:00am to 9:00am.
If you would like to trial for the Oxford MCCU, please submit your application by Friday 2nd October 2020. Trials will be held, and you will be notified as to the time of your trial via email.
Scheme update March 2018: Funding to retain the MCCU scheme across all the 6 centres, has been secured until 2021 and discussions continue to extend this further. Further updates will be made when available. Please contact us should you have any questions regarding this matter.
