    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 at both the Cricket Centre at Iffley Road and the Centre for Sport at Brookes' Headington campus. Training sessions involve net practices, fielding drills, 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 the elite UCCE team, OBUCC fields two sides (1st and 2nd XI) for the outdoor BUCS season which run from mid-April through to June. It is the club’s aim to annually compete for 'National Champion' status for our UCCE side and achieve a long-awaited and well-earned series of promotions for the Brookes teams, with some promising new talent amongst the new intake.

  • Alumni Testimonials


    "It has been fantastic to be a part of such a well-structured cricket programme. All credit to Graham Charlesworth and Luke Taylor who work endlessly to provide our group with the best opportunities to grow as athletes. From skills work to S&C to nutrition, opportunities for improvement are always available. Our full winter programme gives us the chance to train all year round with high-quality skills and fitness programmes that are fine tuned for our individual progress. We always have that flexibility that allows us to stay ahead of our studies as well. The pre-season county fixtures offer great opportunities, and this led to me being able to train with the Hampshire squad and debuting in the T20 Blast."

    "I look back at my time at Oxford Brookes with immense pride. My student life was not a stereotypical one. My ambition was to get a good degree and also pursue my ambition to become a professional cricketer. Oxford Brookes gave me access to the facilities and expertise I required to achieve both. By the end of my time I had a 2:1 and been offered my first professional contract at Sussex CCC. Going to Oxford Brookes was one of the best and most important decisions I have ever made and I’ve never looked back."
