Wolvercote Cricket Club

Now Recruiting Adult and Junior Players, Umpires and Scorers for the 2022 Season. Please get in touch!

Daniel Crouch, Chair, Wolvercote Cricket Club

Wolvercote Cricket Club (WCC) is an inclusive, friendly club, and we welcome all ages and abilities. We play competitive cricket in the right spirit – we play to win, but we always have a smile on our faces. It is for this reason that we are one of the fastest growing clubs in Oxfordshire. In recent years WCC has grown to accommodate four adult teams and a fast growing youth set-up, so we can make your whole family feel at home.

We offer a full programme of both league and friendly cricket from May to September, and we have even been known to join indoor leagues in the cooler months. We provide coaching with both bat and ball and both indoor winter and outdoor summer net training. We play in divisions 5, 6, and 8 on Saturdays in the Cherwell League, and you can find us playing midweek friendlies most Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Our youth set-up fields teams for Under 9s, Under 11s, Under 13s, and Under 15s, as well as “All Stars” coaching for 5-8 year olds.

The club hosts regular social events, including a pre-season BBQ, our popular intraclub Wolvercote vs the Rest of the World match, regular low-stakes poker games, and, of course, our end of season annual awards dinner.

We pride ourselves on being a big-hearted and open club. Come and join us!

Competetive Cricket

We currently have 4 teams competing in Divisions 5b, 5c, 6c, and 8a of the Cherwell Cricket League.

Youth Cricket

We currently have four age groups, U9, U11, U13, and U15 for the 2021 season and will be competing in Oxfordshire Cricket Board’s leagues and cups.

Friendly Cricket

We run a healthy friendly fixture schedule featuring T20 matches on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from May to early August, and a number of Sunday matches.
