About Us

CUCC has a history dating back to 1820, and Fenner’s cricket ground, the home of the Club since 1848, is justly famous.

The Blues team compete in the BUCS premier League. Our season culminates in the University Matches against Oxford. The one-day match is held at Lord’s, and a four-day match with first-class status is played at Fenner’s or the The Parks. Since 2008, Twenty20 matches are also played between the two Universities.

As well as first team cricket, the Club also incorporates the Crusaders Cricket Club, founded in 1872 and traditionally considered to be the University reserves who play a range of BUCS, friendly fixtures and annual matches against the Oxford University Authentics. In addition, our Colleges XI play local friendly matches and a varsity match against the Oxford Colleges XI.

CUCC also stages the annual college ‘Cuppers’ competition; a limited overs knock-out competition between the Cambridge Colleges for men and women.  The final is played at Fenner’s.
