Cricket at Loughborough caters for everyone, from performance athletes to beginners. Come along to discover the great sport that is cricket.
At the high-performance level, we provide students with an environment where those with great ambition to play County Cricket can find the very best support, coaching and facilities to develop their sporting careers.
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 and two women’s sides. We also offer training sessions to purely recreational cricketers and in women’s cricket to absolute 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.
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.
Coaching and volunteering
Within most sports there are a range of sports volunteering roles and opportunities for you to get involved and gain experience in. This ranges from coaching and officiating to events, marketing and media and sport science support.
