Exeter Cricket Club
Exeter CC plays home to EUMCC 1st XI for their BUCS matches. Located right next to the University Streatham Campus it gives students easy access to view the cricket.
In the past, the historic 100 year old pavilion (which was opened at the turn of the century by legendary cricketer Dr WG Grace) has been a social venue for the club, though the club underwent a large redevelopment programme during 2015. We are excited for the completion of the new pavilion.
Topsham Sports Ground
Topsham Sports Ground, located just outside the picturesque village of Topsham, is the University's High Performance playing area. The fantastic facility has benefited from heavy investment in the quality of the playing surfaces and a full time dedicated grounds man who has been in place since 2010.
Topsham Cricket Facilities:
Two cricket squares
Outdoor cricket nets
