Welcome to Wolvercote Cricket Club
New Members Welcome
If you are looking to play a bit of cricket in 2016, 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 puts out two teams for league/cup matches (Saturdays) in the Oxford Cricket Association (OCA). The First XI is now in Division Two having landed the Division Three title in 2015. They also won the 2015 Telegraph Cup, whilst the Second XI is in Division Six having been promoted in each of the last four seasons.
There are T20 games arranged for almost every Tuesday and Wednesday evening in May, June and July as well as early August, and a 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. The facilities there, 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 there although we also have use of a wicket at St Edward’s School on the Woodstock Road.

Unfortunately, and rather unexpectedly, the club has lost its use of the Indoor Net facility at St Edward’s School which we had benefited from for a number of years. Undeterred, we have managed to secure the following excellent provision instead:
4 lanes at Oxford Spires Academy on Glanville Road, Oxford, OX4 2AU
These will beheld between 3pm and 6pm every Sunday from:
January 10th, 2016 until March 13th, 2016 inclusively.
Then, we move to the excellent 2 lane indoor nets at the University Sports Centre on Iffley Road, Oxford, OX4 1EQ.
These will be held between 4pm and 7pm on the following Sundays:
In addition, we will begin outdoor nets at St Edward’s School in early April, dates and times to be confirmed.
If you are interested in participating, please get in touch via the contact details listed above.
Annual Subscription and Match Fees.
At the 2014 Annual General Meeting, the following rates were agreed for 2015:
£35 for the year. This covers nets, indoor and out, access to all social activities, eligibility for selection to the various teams and, in your first year, you will receive a playing shirt and a cap.
League/Cup matches – £10.00
Sunday matches – £8.00, £5.00 if played the day before
Midweek T20 games – £5.00
If unwaged, for all matches, you may play for free.
These will be reviewed at the 2015 AGM on Sunday, December 13th.
The 2016 schedule is currently being worked on. In 2015, we had about 40 friendlies and will be looking to arrange a similar number for next season.
