Loughborough Students Cricket Club
At the High Performance level Loughborough MCCU for those students to whom Cricket is a sporting passion, rather than a potential professional career, Loughborough offers the best training and playing facilities of any University in the Country, and a range of teams for both male and female students.
The Loughborough Students Cricket Club, which is carefully integrated with the MCCU, caters for the very best student cricketers who are not at County Cricket level. The Clubs teams all operate at the same level as other University 1st teams. In total there are 4 men’s teams within the Club, and two woman’s sides. Because of the scale of winter training facilities, the Club also offers nets to purely recreational cricketers and in women’s cricket to absolute beginners. While the teams are picked on merit, training facilities are open to all who want to join the Club. All the Clubs teams are Coached during the training sessions.
