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 our glorious Mitchell Cup (3rd) and Reid Cup (4th) premiership sides, 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 with the likes of Ed Cowan and Nick Larkin on current CNSW contracts, Devlin Malone on a BBL contract, and Tim Ley a regular in the NSW 2nd XI.
They are supported by a strong group of players under the Elite Athlete Program, who combine their education with elite cricket programs. This program has been the cornerstone of the Club's player depth and success across all grades.
Sydney University Cricket Club is proud of the way its cricketers play their cricket.
SU Cricket 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 its fourth consecutive SCA Spirit of Cricket Award in 2015/16.
Our mantra of success is not contained to the cricket field. SUCC expects the same level of dedication and passion of our players 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 blessed 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.
Gary Whitaker, Director of Cricket, has over 30 years of playing and coaching experience, and brings together a group of expert coaches and medical staff to offer the best possible cricket program.
Dale Bryant, Operations Manager, has over a decade experience in sports administration and development, and brings a passion for the off-field success of the Club.
