The Competitions

Indoor 6-7 a side games

We play a number of indoor games in the Desso sports hall on main campus during the winter months. This high tempo style of cricket helps lift us from our winter slumbers. Typically these matches take place outside of term time and during the Christmas and Easter breaks.

Typically we will see at least 4 such indoor fixtures played through the winter break.

Please consult the fixture list for the latest up to date information.

The Interdepartmental League (AKA Warwick IPL)

Free your mind from the stresses of University life and immerse yourself in our hugely popular league. Get active whilst socialising with friends and making new ones! #activeleagues

During the summer time, 5 staff and student cricket teams derived from the Departments of the University of Warwick take to the cricket pitches at Cryfield to battle each other in the thrilling 20-20 format of the game. Matches are on weekday evenings typically Tuesday and Thursday starting at 5:30pm over at Cryfield with all the kit provided.

The captains of the sides are always looking for new players and welcome all levels of ability. Open to staff, postgraduates, undergraduates, alumni, retired staff and externals with Warwick Sport membership. Please note you do not have to be in that department to play for the team as many departments don't have a team. (Ideally look for the closest faculty)

Each team should play 8 fixtures per season in this competition.

Please consult the fixture list and the latest version of the rules for the most up to date information.
