Topsham Sports Ground
As our club song sings "The Fields of Topsham Road" adapted from "The Fields of Athenry", the home of Exeter University cricket is Topsham Road. 


Topsham Sports Ground, located just outside the picturesque village of Topsham, is the University's High-Performance playing area. It is home to our four BUCS XIs and has benefited from heavy investment in the quality of the playing surfaces with a full time dedicated groundsman who has been in place since 2010. 


Topsham Cricket Facilities:

  • Two cricket squares

  • Outdoor cricket nets

  • Clubhouse with kitchen facilities


The quality and size of the venue provide fantastic scope for the club to continue progressing forward.
