Exciting Times at Wolvercote CC

3rd XI

2017 sees the club field a 3rd XI in the OCA for the first time in its long history. Considering it is only  a decade ago that we started up a 2nd XI, the club has come a long way in a short time. The new team will play on Saturdays in Division Eight (North) at Horspath Road. Clearly, increasing our presence in the county league means that we will need new players so if it appeals, please get in touch.

Have a scout around the website. There is plenty of information about what we provide and what you need to do to join up.

New Members Welcome

If you are looking to play a bit of cricket in 2017, please get in touch.

Wolvercote CC is based in North Oxford (Summertown) and turns out teams for Saturday, Sunday and Midweek (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) games. The Club fields three teams for league/cup matches (Saturdays) in the Oxford Cricket Association (OCA). The First XI is now in Division One having been promoted in 2016  whilst the Second XI is in Division Five having won Division Six last year. 2017 will see us send out a 3rd XI for the first time and they will feature in Division Eight (North).

There are T20 games arranged for most Tuesday and Wednesday evenings in May, June and July as well as early August, and a limited number of fixtures on various Sundays (40 over) dotted throughout the season.

The Club plays it’s league cricket at Cutteslowe Park, just north of Summertown, and Horspath Sorts and Athletics Ground on Horspath Road. The facilities, both playing and changing, are first rate having been recently refurbished by the City Council at considerable expense. We also play most of our midweek and Sunday friendlies at Cutteslowe although we also have use of a wicket at St Edward’s School on the Woodstock Road.
