The outdoor cricket season may not start until the summer term, but the Reading University Cricket Club (RUCC) is active throughout the year. The men's teams compete in BUCS and have each been rewarded with some very successful results. There is regular training each week, currently on a Sunday, and speciest coaching conducted by a level 4 coach occuring in the Spring term. The cricket club run 2 sides, who play midweek league games in the summer University term with the 1st XI playing in the South East Division 2A. Furthermore, there are plans to run two indoor sides during 2016/17 in the BUCS leagues.
The cricket club has a great social side which is accessible to all and is highly enjoyable, with the year kicking off with the eagerly anticipated Cricket Whites Social. There are socials regulary during each term and everyone is welcome to come along. In the summer term there is a social 6's which is a great day with a 6 a-side tournament, BBQ and beer as well as an end of season meal.
In June 2014 the club went on its first ever cricket tour to Devon and now the club committee are looking at forward to a tour to Holland in the summer of 2016. This was a fantastic trip with an entertaining few days, with some great stories to be told.
The Cricket Club continues to grow as it strives to achieve sustained long-term excellence, as it heads into the winter in preparation for the 2017 season.
