UBVCC offers all of its members a range of opportunities so that they develop not just as a cricketer but as a well-rounded, more employable individual.
Anyone can train at least twice a week in our recreational training slots, which people can be flexible with. We understand people have academic and timetabling commitments so people can come and go to recreational sessions as they please even if they can only train for an hour.
If you are in one of the five squads, you will have your own team training session.
We also run fitness sessions on a Monday morning for those wanting to keep fit throughout the winter.
Fixtures and Competition
