Sydney University Cricket Club - An Icon
Sydney University Cricket Club boasts over 150 years of passion and tradition. From the first University of Sydney students taking to the Garrison Ground (what is now the site of the SCG), through to the current NSW Premier Cricket 1st Grade Premiers, SU Cricket is founded on excellence.
SU Cricket's home on the Camperdown Campus of The University of Sydney places it in a picturesque and iconic location close to the Sydney CBD.
The Club is supported by Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness, the premier sporting body in Australian university sport. This support assists SU Cricket with state-of-the-art facilities, as well as allowing our student members to pursue their cricketing dreams whilst completing their chosen studies.
In 150-years of cricket, Sydney University Cricket Club has boasted 20 players with international experience, and a further 85 players with first-class experience.
Our players are striving to succeed on the highest stages possible. We have a high calibre of players, including Nick Larkin who is currently contracting with the NSW Speedblitz Blues, while Damien Mortimer, Joe Kershaw, Devlin Malone, Ryan McElduff and Hayden Kerr all played at higher representative levels in 2018-19.
They are supported by a strong group of players under the Elite Athlete Program, who combine their education with a high performance cricket training program. This program has been the cornerstone of the Club's player depth and success.
Sydney University Cricket Club is proud of the way its cricketers play their cricket.
The Club expects excellence and success on-field, but not at any cost. The Spirit of Cricket is as important to the Club as any of its victories, and was awarded the SCA Spirit of Cricket Award in 2018/19 - the sixth in seven seasons since the award’s inception.
Our mantra of success is not contained to the cricket field. The Club expects the same level of dedication and passion of our players in their study/work life. With the strength of The University of Sydney (among the top 100 Universities in the world), our members have the opportunity to create a successful life outside of cricket. Our corporate network is extensive with players and Alumni successful in a wide variety of industries.
Sydney University Cricket Club is fortunate to have two full-time staff to assist the Club's experienced Board of Management in running the day-to-day operations of such a successful club.
Cam Borgas, Director of Cricket, has over a decade of professional playing and coaching experience, and brings together a group of expert coaches and medical staff to offer the best possible cricket program.
Colin Robertson, General Manager, has recently joined the Club in 2019/20 and brings with him decades of corporate management experience, combined with a huge passion for the Club.
