High-performance cricket

mccu badge

Cricket at Anglia Ruskin University is well-supported, as we're one of six MCC universities, in partnership with Cambridge University.

Talented athletes are able to access dedicated support, train at the indoor school at Fenners Ground (a two-minute walk from campus), and play fixtures on a first class ground. You'll be able to train as a full-time player and carry on your education.

MCCU cricketers get:

  • group strength and conditioning sessions
  • first class fixtures against professional county sides
  • individual and group coaching sessions
  • a pre-season tour
  • video and Hawk-Eye analysis at Lord's.

Athletes also (when selected by the coach) get:

  • free sports club membership
  • free gym access
  • access to sports therapists to help with prehabilitation and recovery from injury
  • sports performance talks.

Exceptional athletes may also be eligible for an ARU Sport Scholarship.
