Welcome to Wolvercote Cricket Club

New Members Welcome

If you are looking to play a bit of cricket in 2015, please get in touch.

Wolvercote CC is based in North Oxford (Summertown) and turns out teams for Saturday, Sunday and Midweek (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) cricket. The Club has two teams that play league/cup matches (Saturdays) in the Oxford Cricket Association (OCA). The First XI is in Division 3 after staying up in 2014, whilst the Second XI is in Division 7 having been promoted in each of the last three seasons.

There are T20 games arranged for almost every Tuesday and Wednesday evening in May, June and July, and a number of fixtures on various Sundays (40 over) dotted throughout the season.

The club provides indoor nets on Sunday afternoons beginning on January 4th, 2015, at St. Edwards School Oxford, in the Sports Hall just behind Virgin Active ( formerly ‘Esporta’ or ‘The Oxfordshire’), off the Woodstock Road. There are also outdoor nets available, again at St Edwards’s, in May and June. Details for these have yet to be finalised but will probably be from 7pm on Thursdays.

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 just been refurbished by the Council at considerable expense.
