About Us

Durham University Cricket Club has played at the Racecourse since 1843. DUCC trains in the Maiden Castle sports Complex using state-of-the-art indoor facilities.

The club provides cricketers with the opportunity to compete at university, national and international levels with a recent tour to Cape Town, South Africa in 2018. Our tour to Barbados has been delayed into the near future. DUCC runs four teams competing in the BUCS National, North A and North 2B Leagues enjoying success in all these competitions.

Durham has held MCCU status between 2001 and 2020. During this time we have been MCCU Two Day Champions, Two time Challenge Final Winners and recently won the BUCS National League in 2018. With the MCCU scheme halting this year we look forward to embracing the new competition in the 2020/21 season.

On the other side, DUCC provides an encouraging and enthusiastic environment in which players can grow as individuals. The social side of cricket is a value which the club holds dearly with regular whole club socials organised during all three terms. The environment provided by the club greatly enhances the University experience.

We are proudly Palatinate.
