At UCL Women's Cricket Club we are proud to create an inclusive, fun environment for everyone to enjoy cricket at all levels. We offer a vibrant calendar of training, matches, socials and welfare-activities for all our members whether you are new to the sport or a seasoned cricketer. We train at a variety of venues throughout the year, including the 'Home of Cricket', Lord's Cricket Ground and the Oval, and embrace external opportunities such as partaking in the MCC Foundation's 'Cricket For All' tournament. In the summer, our 1XI hardball team participates in BUCS and LUSL leagues and we organise friendlies and relaxed matches for our softball team. A highlight of the year is our varsity match against King's College London, the first women's varsity being won by our stellar team last year.
Our social schedule is packed with activities to get to know each other better, such as our Welcome Dinner in the first week of university, wholesome pizza and crafts nights and of course, our weekly sportsnights. In the summer, we organise welfare trips to community farms and trips to watch live cricket matches, as they happen so abundantly in London. We also plan to host our inaugural tour in first term, which we hope will be a highlight of your time at university.
What we have planned:
- Welcome dinner, President's dinner and alumni dinner
- Indoor nets at Lord’s in the winter
- Summer nets at Regent's Park in the summer
- Weekly beginner sessions at Somers Town Community Sports Centre
- Weekly socials including sportsnights, welfare socials and meals

Whether you are a pro or beginner, we cannot wait to welcome you into the UCL WCC family!

Please note that though we are a 'women's' club, we are open to everyone regardless of their gender identity and exist to provide a safe space for women and non-binary people.
