Adelaide University Cricket Club

Adelaide University Cricket Club

Description

Formed in 1907, Adelaide University Cricket Club (“AUCC”) has a proud history as one of the longest established Clubs of the South Australian Cricket Association (“SACA”), the highest level of cricket in SA.

AUCC also has four teams in the Adelaide Turf Cricket Competition (“ATCA”) and one Women’s SACA 2nd grade T20 and One Day Team, and one ATCA Women's Development team. We have a level to suit any level of cricketer, whether you are an aspiring 1st Grade or representative cricketer, a club 'weekend warrior', or someone taking their first steps in the game we have a place for you at AUCC.

Although we are a University Cricket Club, our players come from all walks of life, not all are students. We are an ‘open club’ that welcomes players from all over the world, whether they are students or not. We have players who joined the club as under graduates and now occupy positions on the club committee, or turn out for one of the many teams that AUCC field each week. We have an alumnus of former players that have represented the club at state and international level and it is our stated aim to develop players to play at those levels.

In 2019-20 we have developed a new initiative - AU Rock Up Cricket - developed specifically for players new to the sport, or for those not yet available to commit fully to competitive cricket this program introduces cricket coaching and T20 competition in the form of SACA Super Cricket. Cost for the year is subsidised to $150 and includes a club cap & playing tee.

Our home ground is the beautiful University Oval within the Adelaide Parklands and our training and match facilities are second to none.

Each year, AUCC players and AU students represent the Vice-Chancellor’s XI in a preseason one day intervarsity (IV) tournament, held at University of Queensland. Traditionally, we have also played three day matches against the Sydney University and Melbourne University Cricket Clubs.

Please note that you do not have to be an Adelaide University student to play for AUCC. We encourage players of all backgrounds and age.

AU Rock Up Cricket is a new cricket development program piloted in 2018 and introduced in 2019 aimed specifically at International Students, those returning to the sport or for players looking to join a club for the first time. AU Rock Up Cricket is a social cricket program, run at reduced cost and allows entry level participants the opportunity to learn the game and play in a less structured and competitive environment. Run using AUCC resources the program involves weekly coaching sessions and entry into the SACA Super Cricket Competition played at West Beach on Sundays for social teams. We have appointed existing International Students that are established club members to 'front' the program and to ensure that any cultural differences are overcome. The aim is to increase our offering of less formal, social cricket opportunities to all University of Adelaide Students, and the wider community.
