Successful on the field and inclusive and friendly off it, RUMS Cricket is a flourishing club which offers a fantastic university experience. We embrace both the playing and social aspects of the game and new members, both male and female, of all abilities are encouraged to join, whether a seasoned cricketer or a genuine beginner. Our cricketing year begins by tracing the steps of the past and present greats of the game at “The Home of Cricket”, Lord’s Cricket Ground. Here we run net sessions throughout the first and second terms. In the summer, we field 1st and 2nd XI sides, who compete in LUSL and BUCS leagues and the famed UH Cup.
Coming off the back of RUMS CC’s most successful seasons ‘since records began’, with the 1st XI bagging the prestigious UH Cup as well as winning 'RUMS Sports Team of the Year 2017' for our stellar efforts in reaching the top 16 in the national BUCS indoor league, there’s never been a better time to play cricket for RUMS.
Boasting an increasingly vibrant social schedule, RUMS CC provides a warm and welcoming environment for getting to know fellow medics of all ages, and a useful network of support throughout the year. In addition to Sports Night on Wednesday evenings, we hold regular social events – with our Meet the Club Meal and Pub Golf just to name a couple. In fact, it is the club’s social prowess which continues to catch the eye of the great and good of the cricketing world, with a deal almost sealed to land a disgruntled Kevin Pietersen – said to be particularly enamoured with RUMS CC’s policy of letting their players text message whatever they want.
Having toured Trinidad in 2013, Singapore in 2015, and recently Barbados in 2017 - RUMS Cricket continues to offer the unique and unforgettable experience of an International Tour. Unrivalled by any other club in RUMS, these tours offer the chance to play in a different climate, bring the team into a tight-knit group and are accessible for players of all levels of ability – all at an affordable price! This is truly an experience not to be missed.
So whether you’re looking for highly competitive university cricket, or just to meet some new people and have a laugh, RUMS CC is the club for you. We’d love to hear from you so for more information e-mail our President at [email protected] and be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates on all things RUMS Cricket!
