About The Club

Birkbeck CricketEstablished in 1832, the club was in existence a good 16 years before the birth of the sport’s first truly great player, W.G. Grace in 1848 and some 50 years before the first Ashes contest between England and Australia in 1882. Indeed, in 1832 underarm bowling was still the formal method of bowling, until its replacement by round-arm bowling in 1835 and finally overarm bowling in 1864. Today, the Cricket Club is the largest sports club at Birkbeck. The club has around 20 members in the core squad, training on a regular basis. The club has a further 100 members who keep track of the progress of the 1st XI and who are invited to take part in some of the social and beginners events held throughout the course of the academic year. In recent years, the club has enjoyed some success with the 1st XI finishing last season as runners up in the London Division II Cup (2013/14 season).
