*****The Information on this main page was mainly useful for those starting at Warwick in October 2017, however it can be useful to anyone who would like to get an idea of the club and how we work or for anyone potentially looking at joining the club in October 2018*****
Congratulations on being accepted into Warwick! We hope that now the worry and stress of A levels are over, you will join UWMCC to help you settle you into university life with socials, great blokes and a little bit of cricket on the side. We also welcome post grad members and any students already at Warwick and looking for a great club to join!
Whether you’ve batted 3 for England or never played before, UWMCC will be a great part of your university life should you join! We offer cricket to suit all abilities with 4 BUCS teams and a friendlies side in the summer, plus indoor matches in the winter. We are one of the largest clubs on campus with great social events and a charity presence, so please get in contact over the summer or when you get to university to let UWMCC be a great part of your uni life.
“I’ve not had too many regrets in my time at university so far, but by the far the biggest one was waiting until the start of term 2 to get involved with UWMCC.” – Jack Jewson, Club Stalwart
Why you should join us?
You should join UWMCC as it will become one of the best parts of your university experience. We cater for all, whether you want to play the highest level of cricket, or are more into the social and friendly side of the game, UWMCC is something you should be a part of at Warwick.
We have weekly socials in the Copper Rooms, 4 training sessions a week (you don’t have to go to them all – or any) with professional coaches, and both international and domestic tours. Please come see us at Sports Fair or at any of the dates below to find out more.
Wednesday 4th October – Meet and Greet in Terrace Bar – 5.30pm until Circling/POP
Wednesday 4th October – Circling – Copper Rooms – 8pm
Friday October 6th – The start of our weekly taster net sessions, starting at 1.30pm – 3.30pm in Desso Hall in the Sports Centre. (For Women’s Cricket click here)
Sunday 15th October – afternoon – Bowling at Ten Pin in Leamington (time to be confirmed), pick up from campus.
If there is one thing you take from this page, it is that we recommend you purchase circling tickets for POP when they are released before term starts. For Weeks 1, 2 and 10 they will sell out very fast so make sure you are ready to buy them at 12pm (More details on release dates will be posted in the Facebook group).
These weekly socials are easily the best chance to get to know club members and involve cheap, subsidised drinks, followed by cheesy tunes and dancing in Pop!
When we hear about Pop! tickets on sale we will update the website.
The best way to get direct information about cricket at Warwick as soon as you arrive is to visit us at Sports Fair. This will be held on Tuesday 3rd October, 11am – 5:30pm. Members of the exec will be manning the UWMCC stall armed with all the information you need about getting involved with the club. We hope to see you soon!
Nets and Trials
Details on Net times can be found in the club info tab, or the freshers’ guide. The tasters in Weeks 1 & 2 are open to all and are a great chance to meet the captains; the sessions are held in Desso Hall in the Sports Centre. Anyone who would like the chance to play in our BUCS teams will need to sign up and go to the trials in Weeks 3, 4 and 5.
However, we also have a very competitive friendlies side, so don’t be disheartened if you miss out.
Over the first few weeks of term, we will hold our first international tour meeting. A representative from our tour company will come and speak to all those interested in our upcoming tour to the Caribbean! It is a great thing to be involved in and you should talk to Jacob Roche (Tour Sec – firstname.lastname@example.org) or Daniel Lewis (Pres – email@example.com) to find out more about this fantastic opportunity.
In term 1 of every year, the club will hold a black-tie dinner and welcome an after-dinner speaker from the world of international cricket (in the past this has included Paul Nixon, Matthew Hoggard and Gladstone Small). This is the highlight of our social calendar and this year promises to be no different!
This space will be updated regularly as the SU and Warwick Sport release more information about ticket sales and net times, please check this page frequently and if you have any questions, message us at firstname.lastname@example.org. More specific queries can be sent via Facebook or email to our President, Dan (email@example.com) , or our Social Sec, Joe (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Club Captain, Louie (L.Millman@warwick.ac.uk). We look forward to seeing you soon!
