Proudest Sporting Moment: Taking the wicket of the captain of my county team to win the national finals

Cricket at Trinity enjoys a rich history full of both long-standing friendly fixtures and more competitive inter-collegiate tournaments. We typically train for one hour once every two weeks during the Michaelmas and Lent terms so the commitment is really low - regardless of your ability there will definitely be a place for you!

If you’ve never played the game before the Freshers’ Sports Day is a great opportunity to come try it out, and if you do take a liking to it you are more than welcome to attend our training sessions throughout the first two terms. Ultimately college sport is more of a social activity than a serious exercise and you will undoubtedly make friends, be it at training, at our socials or even in years above or below yours at Trinity.

After two terms of light net training, in Easter term we then have Cuppers matches versus other colleges consisting of two to three T20 games in the group stage, with the chance of reaching the semi-final and then final. We were unfortunate to have our last season cancelled due to the pandemic, however, the season previous to this resulted in our Trinity team reaching the semi-final and narrowly losing out to a strong Emanuel college. We hope to build on the recent rise in performance level over the last 5 years and progress well into the competition and therefore welcome any players to join our sides, we are always in need!

It should be also noted that there is no separate womens’ team and all women who want to try the game or have experience playing cricket are extremely welcome to join and participate.

If you have any questions at all about cricket at Cambridge, be it College level or University level, feel free to contact me via email or Facebook!
