About us

ULCC is one of the finest performing and supported societies at Leicester University. Both the first and second XI participate in BUCS Midlands Leagues at a highly competitive level; we have also won Varsity for the past two years against our rivals, DMU. Furthermore, we run two Indoor Teams, which allows members to experience competitive fixtures throughout the entirety of the academic year. Throughout the winter we run regular training sessions twice a week; the fantastic facilities and professional coaching that we have access to provide club members with a fantastic opportunity to develop all aspects of their game. Further to this we have formed a partnership with a local premier side, Kibworth CC, who provide us with an opportunity to train alongside them as well as a coach for summer training.

ULCC also is proud to have a brilliant social side. From our infamous four-legged race to our curry evenings, we can guarantee to offer something for everyone and ensure there is never a dull moment in your time at Leicester. Social events are held regularly throughout the year and help to create a strong and inclusive club spirit, which allows for a stouter bond on the cricket pitch.
