Cricket

Welcome to NTU Men’s Cricket Club. Cricket at NTU is a growing club in both size and performance who cater for anyone regardless of ability or experience in the sport. Whether you play for a club competing in your local premier division or have little knowledge and experience of the game and are looking to try something new, then cricket is the perfect sport to help you develop skills both on and off the field.

British Universities and Colleges Sports (BUCS)

NTUCC currently have four men’s outdoor and two indoor teams playing in the BUCS leagues. This allows us to compete and contribute to BUCS points all year round. Our men’s first XI gained promotion to Midlands Division 1 after an unbeaten 2018/19 season in Midlands 2A. The 2’s play in Midlands 2A, 3’s in Midlands 4B, and 4’s in Midlands 4A. In indoor, our 1’s made it to the Northern Championship Qualifier, held at Edgbaston.
