Women's Cricket

Cricket at Loughborough caters for everyone, from performance athletes to beginners. Come along to discover the great sport that is cricket.


At the performance level we provide students with an environment to develop within the new Elite Domestic Structure of Women’s Cricket. Through our Inter Disciplinary Team approach, we focus on the holistic development of the individual not just the cricketer.

This programme caters for those with ambitions to play International and Hundred ball cricket. Players can find the very best coaching and facilities to continue their cricketing journey. Lightning cricket consists of 2 teams, a Senior and an Academy squad where both are provided with full performance programme support and bring together current students and players from the East Midlands region (Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire.)

Athletic Union Club

The Loughborough Students' Cricket Club currently has over 200 members and also caters for the very best student cricketers who are not at County Cricket level.

In total, there are 4 men’s teams that compete in BUCS, Indoor Competitions, County age Group competitions and Friendlies throughout the season.

The club caters for all abilities from high level county cricket with sport scholarships through to recreational training sessions for beginners. 

While the teams are picked on merit, training facilities are open to all who want to join the club. All our teams have coaches present during the training sessions and we have the National Cricket Performance Centre at our disposal for training.

My Lifestyle

Action Cricket is available through My Lifestyle, which combines fun and fitness and allows everyone to play. The game involves the same principles of cricket but is played at a faster pace where everyone can get involved.
