Cricket (Mens)

SUCC is one of the largest sports clubs at the University and also one of the most successful. We boast 4 competitive sides along with our additional 5th XI friendly side, where we welcome players of all abilities, whether it be an international age group representative cricketer or complete novices! The club isn't just active during the summer term, we train on Thursdays and Sundays through the winter at the University Sports Hall. 2023/24 will also see the continuation of WiPL (Wessex Indoor Premier League), an IPL-style, franchise-based tournament, giving every SUCC member an opportunity to experience Indoor Cricket like never before. Off the field, we have a social every Wednesday that follows a variety of themes each week, and also tour every year. Whatever the event, you can be sure of a warm welcome if you join SUCC!
